Novlin Ellison 22nd May 2021

Gooding Funeral Service have been undstanding, caring and professional throughout the whole process of laying my husband John to rest. They addressed all my concerns and questions either by phone, email or Zoom meetings during this difficult time of loosing my husband. They have also navigating me through the process of the Covid - 19 restrictions. All of Gooding Funeral Service employees spoke to me with compassion and respect. All working with me at my pace to ensure the service arrangements met my Wishes and needs. For example, on the day of the service my sister's in law and I wanted to walk a short distance in front of the Hurst. This was not pre-arranged but compassionately accommodated. I know my husband John would have been proud of his sisters and myself for taking this small measure of respect. I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of both families, to thank Gooding Funeral Service for their empathy and professionalism in taking good care of my husband John and the empathy and professionalism shown to both family. Kindest regards Novlin Ellison

About Us

Gooding Funeral Services is a family-run service that’s been a part of our city for three generations, caring for bereaved families in Leeds and across the North.

Our warm and friendly team works closely with the clients we serve, to provide a funeral which meaningfully reflects the life, tradition and beliefs of their loved one.

As a trusted independent funeral home based in the heart of the city, we believe that every person’s funeral should be distinct and special, whether it’s a traditional ceremony, a contemporary celebration of life, or the simple and fuss-free occasion they wished for.
Our inclusive funeral service caters to people of all faiths, as well as people of no religious belief and those who cared for the environment. We provide specialist bathing facilities for communities where these observances form an important part of religious funeral rites and customs.
As an independent company, our strength lies in listening, understanding and arranging things according to our clients’ wishes. We are here to help, every day of the year and around the clock – and are happy to provide obligation-free advice and estimates.
From woodland burials to affordable options with flexible, interest-free and easy-pay options, every funeral we arrange is important to us.
We offer a wide range of services, including in-house bereavement support from our dedicated grief recovery specialist and advice about matters such as registering a death and who must be notified when someone dies.
Our broad selection of options and services cover every aspect of arranging a funeral, and includes a wide range of coffins and caskets, a choice of beautiful floral tributes, transport including limousines and hearses, catering and dove releases, traditional and contemporary cremation memorials and memorial masonry.
We are also happy to oversee the management of charitable donations and place online and newspaper notices and offer the design and print of order of services.

For clients who wish to hold a loved-one’s funeral overseas, or to arrange for a loved one to be returned to the UK for their burial or cremation, we offer an international repatriation service. In addition to this, we can arrange non-invasive, post-mortems for Coroner approved coroner cases by Digital Autopsy.
Our tailored services will ensure an occasion which truly reflects the memory of the person you have lost. Please call us and let us know how we can help.
