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

The team is available to support you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so there is always someone for you to talk to – please don’t hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or need any information.

We recognise that people have different amounts of experience in arranging a funeral and that every individual and family has their own ideas, concerns and expectations.  We will first listen and then tailor the tone and style of our support to respond to what people want and need from us.  We are a female-led organisation and our approach is informed by our previous professional experience within health and social care.

We opened our first funeral service in Guiseley in September 2016 and from here we have supported people many families living in or near Ilkley. In the past, people always used the funeral director in their home town but we support many families from Ilkley who would prefer to travel a little further to find a service that they feel would be best able to give them the support that they need.

We believe that how a place looks and feels has a big impact on how people feel, especially during challenging times. We were determined to create a funeral service that feels friendly, calm and peaceful so that you feel comfortable spending time there.  Please have a look at the pictures in our gallery below, or your might find our video tour helpful.

Since Full Circle Funerals opened in Yorkshire in 2016, we have always believed in the importance of having a positive impact on the people we support, the community, our team and the world in which we live and work.

Our primary purpose is to deliver the best possible funeral care but we also work had to make a wider positive contribution to the world in which we live.  We became a Certified B Corp in November 2021 and would love to hear from you if you have a project which we can support, or if you are a business who is interested in finding out more about how to become part of a movement for good.

Local services – Supporting You Together

We understand that strong communities connections are really important to many people, especially after they have been bereaved.  We work closely with other services, businesses and organisations in Ilkley so that together we can give you the best possible support

You may already have established relationships, and people or places that you prefer but many people suddenly find that they need access to services and suppliers that they have very little previous experience of.  If we can share information about what is available in and around Ilkley, then that gives you what you need to decide what you feel would be most helpful for you.
