We are modern funeral directors, committed to supporting the wellbeing of every bereaved individual


Firstly, we will listen to you, and then tailor our support to meet your needs.  Importantly, we recognise that some people want to be given clear guidance and direction whereas others would prefer to be informed about their options. Consequently, they feel empowered to make the choices that are right for them.

Our funeral directors service in Harrogate opened in January 2020.  Full Circle Funerals 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 Award. It is important to understand that we work hard to deliver person-centred support, making sure that you are at the centre of everything that we do.

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.



David has spent much of his working life as a Secondary School Music Teacher and Performer. After moving back to his hometown of Harrogate with his family, David was drawn to funeral care through his desire to provide care and support to families during a difficult time. David is a passionate musician and in his spare time enjoys playing and performing with his guitar and voice.

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


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.
