Guide to Funeral Directors in Leeds

Modern Leeds developed from a burgeoning mill town during the industrial revolution to become the UK’s third biggest city. With a population of 700,000, it boasts a diverse economy, making it one of the fastest growing national producers. It is well provided with four universities, many museums including the new City Museum, and theatres including the Grand Theatre.

Leeds comprises a wide selection of communities, although the majority of the population identify as Christian. Three per cent identify as Muslim which reflects the average across the country. Leeds also has a large Jewish community. There are over 75 ethnic groups including Pakistani, Indian, Asian, Bangladeshi and Chinese. Therefore funeral directors in Leeds are likely to have experience providing services for a wide range of religious beliefs and cultural traditions.

There are over 60 funeral directors in Leeds and the surrounding area, with a wide distribution throughout the city and its suburbs. All areas are well provided for and it should be straightforward to source funeral services conveniently.

There are three large crematoriums for Leeds funeral arrangements: Lawnswood on Otley Road to the north of the city; Cottingley on Elland Road to the south west and Rawdon on Leeds Road to the north west.

Leeds has over 20 cemeteries, spread in and around the city, although many of the older ones are now full.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Very professional 

Matthew Mitchell 2020-01-20 11:59:03

Really brilliant service, very understanding and compassionate from the first time we met which makes a massive difference.

Julie Rishworth 2020-01-19 21:51:02

Edward Box and his staff did a wonderful job arranging my mums funeral and especially went above and beyond considering we live overseas and there’s a time difference. He was very attentive to our needs and listened carefully so my mums wishes were followed. He made himself available at any time and communicated all the details by phone and email to make things go smoothly. We were so happy that the service went so well and everything happened just as Edward said it would. During a time when it’s sometimes difficult to make decisions and final arrangements he helped us through everything and no detail was missed.
