Everyone at Pontefract funeral care has been kindness and consideration themselves. They have welcomed questions, comforted us in our distress and showed kindness gentle humour when we laughed. Absolutely brilliant service.

    The care and compassion given by Paul was 1st class and the staff were very helpful and sympathetic to our needs. We were very impressed with the aftercare from Paul who even phoned the day following the funeral to check that Marlene was ok and that we were satisfied with the level of service given. He even told Marlene that they were there for her at any time should she feel the need to have a word. Excellent, thank you so much for your help and compassion. Marlene, Eileen and Michael
