Planning The Funeral You Want
One of the most important aspects of our service to you is to ensure that every client gets the help and support they want and which they feel will reflect the life of the person who has died.
Coffins – We supply a wide range of coffins from cardboard through all types of traditional coffins to colourful or bamboo or willow coffins. All our coffins are manufactured from sustainable sources.

Dressing – We will use one of our range of dressing gowns. If you prefer the person who has died to be dressed in his or her own clothes, this is usually no problem.
Music – Music forms an increasingly important part of many funeral services. Please advise us of any choices you would like.
The Service – As well as traditional religious services of all faiths, we have a lot of experience in arranging alternative funeral ceremonies. Richard Binks is a member of the Institute of Civil Funerals. He has carried out many personalised ceremonies designed, in conjunction with the family, to reflect the life that has been lived.
The Eulogy – If a member of the family wishes to deliver a eulogy we can give practical advise on planning and writing a fitting tribute.
Vehicles – As well as our own modern fleet of funeral vehicles, we can arrange for a horse drawn hearse; motorcycle hearse or flat bed lorry hearse.
Green Burials – There are a number of Green Burial Sites in the Yorkshire area. Please ask your Funeral Director for details.
Cremated Remains – Over recent years we have noticed more and more clients wanting to either inter the cremated remains of a loved one and to have a permanent memorial or to scatter them somewhere that was important to the person who has died. Please ask about options.
Printing – Should you wish us to provide Orders of Service, Memorial Cards, Attendance Cards or Thank-You cards, we will be happy to show you samples and discuss your individual requirements.
Flowers – Please ask to see our Flower Brochure. We are proud of the quality of the floral tributes which we provide and of the care which goes into the making of each one.
Catering – As well as having our own facilities we can recommend a number of venues throughout the area and have a range of buffet menus available.
