Pamela Caveen 11th Feb 2020

We were very happy with the service offered by the Ossett branch of Eric F. Box. Our mum's funeral was conducted with dignity and compassion from the outset. Polly was very kind and helpful throughout, ensuring that both mum's and the family's wishes were met. We were guided through the whole process, which was very important as we had not had to plan a funeral before. I would highly recommend this company.

    Without Polly's advice and kindness I wouldn't have got through my wife's funeral. I know there's a long way to go but Polly and her colleagues helped me over the first hurdle. The funeral was beautiful, a credit to Eric F. Box, Ossett. They really are a blueprint for others to follow.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?
