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 option so that they feel empowered to make the choices that are right for them.

Although 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 Award because we work hard to deliver person-centred support, making sure that you are at the centre of everything that we do.

Funeral Directors Harrogate – About our services

We believe that our physical environment has a big impact on how we feel and for this reason we have made sure that our service is warm and welcoming. Having said that, we 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.  As an illustration and to see what our funeral service in Harrogate looks like, please see some images below. Additionally, follow this link to watch a video tour of our funeral service in Harrogate.

David Billington

David

Firstly, David previously lived and worked in America. In general, he supported underprivileged children from the Twin Cities in Minnesota to access outdoor youth programs. Subsequently, he then went on to join Sarah in working with both children and adults with learning difficulties. In conclusion, 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

In the first place, David has spent much of his working life as a Secondary School Music Teacher and Performer. Consequently, 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. Finally, 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

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.

Lucy

It was above and beyond any expectations that we had. Read more

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.

Linda

All went very smoothly and relieved us of a great deal of stress. David could not have been more helpful and supportive throughout. Read more

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. Read more

Overall, an excellent service. Efficient and personal.
