A special goodbye for your loved one

We understand the loss of a loved one leaves an empty space in the heart of the bereaved. Our professionals can assist you with a personal funeral service which is typically divided into 4 parts. First, we meet with you to discuss the arrangements. We then conduct the viewing that takes place at the funeral home. This is followed by the funeral service which includes the committal service where the rites are conducted.

You can choose from a horse drawn funeral, an eco-friendly funeral, a dignified simplicity funeral and a motorcycle funeral service. We also provide transportation for the grieving party to and from the service.
"Many many thanks to Sylvia and the whole team at H.Bates, mum had prearranged her funeral with Sylvia. We flew in from the states for mums funeral and met with Sylvia, she was very helpful and understanding to all our needs. I was leaving the UK 5 days after the funeral and wished to scatter part of my mums ashes in the dales (she loved this place) and the remainder to be brought back to the states. 20 hours after the funeral Sylvia called to say the ashes, cherished memories book (this was done beautifully) and certificate to take the ashes out of the country were ready for pick up.The whole team went above and beyond, including Pastor Malcolm Neale who did a beautiful job of mums celebration of life. Thank you for all you did for mum"
