We are modern funeral directors, committed to supporting the wellbeing of every bereaved individual
We will first listen to you, and then tailor our support to meet your needs. We recognise that some people want to be given clear guidance and direction whereas others would prefer to be informed about their options, and then feel empowered to make the choices that are right for them.
Our funeral directors service in Harrogate opened in January 2020. We have been funeral directors since 2016 and everyone in our small team has a professional background in health, social or pastoral care. We hold the award for the “Best Modern Funeral Director” in the national Good Funeral Awards and work hard to deliver person-centred support, making sure that you are at the centre of everything that we do.
We have made sure that our service is warm and welcoming but also understand that sometimes people feel that they would rather us visit them in their homes (or at a different location convenient for them) and we are more than happy to accommodate any such request.

Funeral Directors Harrogate – Our Team
David previously lived and worked in America, supporting underprivileged children from the Twin Cities in Minnesota to access outdoor youth programs. He then went on to join Sarah in working with both children and adults with learning difficulties. Dave has a golden Labrador, called Wilson (who is also part of the team), whom he and his young family explore the surrounding countryside with.
Having worked in a number of positions within the corporate profession Nicola comes to us with a variety of skills that enable her to fully encompass all aspects of funeral care specifically tailored to each individual families wishes. She has volunteered for several well known charities and fully believes in a person centred approach when dealing with all aspects of bereavement.
Whilst there were choices which had to be made at each stage of the process these were made as easy as possible, rechecked regularly and I was able to change my mind and do something different if I felt the need to do so.Read more
I was very pleased for the coffin Full Circle found for my mother; it was a joy to look at and i gave me a great deal of comfort during the service to know it was exactly what she would have chosen herself.
It was easy to communicate with David both by phone and email. He made sure I was fully aware of what was going on at all times and offered help with the florist and celebrant, liaising with them to make sure things went smoothly and removing the burden and worry.
The whole process was comforting and as stress-free as it could be. The added complication of the coronavirus outbreak was carefully managed and did not impact as much as it could on the whole process.
I was very impressed with the eco credentials of Full Circle. The Ecohearse is amazing – clearly a hearse but without being austere(?). Also very grateful for the tree dedication with Make It Wild.
It was above and beyond any expectations that we had. I had googled ‘Direct Cremations’ and although most were cheaper than Full Circle, none offered the level of service that we received. Lucy became a friend to Wendy. She even encouraged her to eat. Nothing was too much trouble. When Wendy died, I didn’t need the same level of support but the service was wonderful. I would recommend Full Circle to anyone.
All went very smoothly and relieved us of a great deal of stress. David could not have been more helpful and supportive throughout.
We wanted something more personal and more sympathetic than traditional funeral directors and were very happy with our choice.
We had a very full, detailed discussion with David at an early stage and although not everything was decided then, there was clarity about all the fundamentals and possibilities.
Overall, an excellent service. Efficient and personal.
