The funeral arrangement was better than we expected! I liked the relaxed style, the fact we were listened to and were not pressurised into buying additional services. Ruth was great! We were allowed to carry out our own mini celebration of Mum’s life despite her desire for no fuss. We could add personal items to the coffin and I was very relieved there was no embalming involved. I loved the lack of solemnity and the ability to laugh with Ruth.
The funeral arrangement was better than we expected – especially they amount of time spent with us to ensure everything was as required and the great friendliness of all the staff at Full Circle. We were very happy that we chose to have the service at the Guiseley premises – it turned out to be a lovely venue with no rush and a very personal feel. The wicker coffin was nice as was the wreath.
I can only say that the times were met with Kerry were uplifting with lots of laughter as we talked about Dad. Kerry really listened and was lovely with my Mum who is 86. She was totally present. Read more

We were able to personalise the funeral by bringing Chris home before the crematorium to toast him and this was important for family and friends. We felt closer to him and that it was more personal and real. Ruth was kind, considerate and patient. She listened to our wishes and helped us achieve them. She was also supportive, yet discreet in the “at home”. I really appreciated how you respected Chris and unhurriedly took him with you, which was of course emotional.

It was nice that Ruth was able to come to the house so that my father could be involved as he is house bound. The direct cremation option was perfect for us and the advice to put rosaries and photos in the coffin was good. We dealt mainly with Ruth who was absolutely spot on for us, and we also dealt with Dave who was also easy to be with.
We knew from previous experience that Ruth would understand what we wanted. Dave was fantastic as a celebrant; the guests all said what a lovely service it was and that he had spoken as if he had really known our father. Read more

The funeral arrangement was cheerful, helpful and professional. We personalised Dad’s funeral by planting up his shoes with flowers. It made Dads funeral.

Carefully guided through the necessary legal steps and also sympathetically through family funeral arrangements which allowed the personal touch.

Ruth provided exceptional support and went the ‘extra mile’. She demonstrated both compassion and the ability to co-ordinate a difficult situation. We are very grateful to her.
We were not able to have a conventional funeral as cremation had taken place in Switzerland and we had no idea how to plan a commemoration. Your friendly and helpful staff made our memorial ceremony take place smoothly and in exactly the way we hoped. Everyone expressed their appreciation.

Sarah, I know I didn’t meet you personally today but I just wanted to thank you and the lady I saw for the lovely experience this morning. The place is done out lovely and really makes you feel comfortable and welcomed its bright and homely not what you imagine a funeral director to be like Read more
There was no time for meeting, arranged by phone very effectively. Staff were marvellous, giving human warmth and sensitivity, flexible approach and efficient service. Full Circle’s premises are lovely tasteful surroundings. Both my dealings with Full Circle involved the deceased donating their remains to the medical school, so no funeral. Full Circle were very accommodating and provided a faultless service to meet our requirements.
Plenty of choice but already knew what I wanted. Seeing other options was lovely but you already had what I’d thought about. I felt supported from the first phone call right through till the end. I couldn’t fault anything, relatives and friends commented on how lovely everything was from funeral car and celebrant.
Ruth was excellent – she provided practical and empathetic support, and helped to create a fitting and appropriate funeral for our Aunty. She remained professional yet personable and warm, and our friends commented how lovely she was at the funeral, keeping the process moving.

The setting is very calm and stylish which simply adds to the positive experience. Really cannot praise their service enough! Thank you.
The myriad of options were clearly explained by Sarah. She helped at each stage of the process. Sarah made sure that, at a very difficult time, the funeral went as well as I could have hoped. Nothing was too much trouble – thank-you.

Our initial meeting with David confirmed our opinion that Full Circle was definitely the right choice. His knowledge and guidance were excellent. Our first call to Full Circle on the out of hours line was taken by Sarah. A vast contrast to a call we had with a more traditional funeral director. She gave us practical advice on keeping my father at home. The white cardboard coffin was exactly what we wanted. We thought it was beautiful. David’s help with arranging our music choices was invaluable.
Deborah and I would like to thank you for all the help and guidance you and your staff have given us. We both felt that dealing with females was more compassionate and understanding, therefore making the bond more intimate.
We knew what we wanted but meeting was great as you could offer our thoughts completely. The staff were very polite, caring and sympathetic. They are lovely premises, beautifully decorated and made us feel comfortable.
We decided to have a ‘Celebration of Life’ rather than a religious funeral and was guided in the right direction. Staff were very professional and friendly. Everything was very organised and done with the utmost care. My family and I would be most grateful if you would pass on our thanks to all your staff for making, what is a traumatic experience, as easy as possible.
I had a good knowledge of options and David was most helpful. A helpful and professional service. Would recommend.
We had an excellent kick-off meeting with Sarah and Ruth. Informative, friendly and relaxed. The staff support was excellent in every respect. We were very satisfied by the physical environment provided by Full Circle. My family are ‘on-stuffy’ and the client area at Full Circle was relaxed and informal. Thank-you for making a difficult process/time more bearable.
I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help and kindness towards my sister during the recent extremely sad loss of her son. You put yourself out so much and was so kind and helpful towards her at a time she really needed support. She was so fortunate to find you as I don’t think any other funeral director would have been anywhere near as caring as you were. I wish you every success with ‘Full Circle’. I couldn’t speak high enough of how wonderful, kind and caring you and your staff are. Thank you once again.
The arrangement meetings helped me to decide what options were most appropriate and meaningful to me and Sarah suggested some good ideas to me that I would not have thought about. The staff carefully told me about all the options in a very kind and helpful way. Read more
Coming to England from Australia in a hurry meant we had no idea who to contact.

David made the whole process easy and hassle free and was very professional and patient. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Thanks David

Their environment was comfortable and welcoming. We could not be happier with the way Sarah arranged things. She did a brilliant job all round. It helped us to get through this difficult period.

They were the absolutely right people to handle my husband’s funeral arrangements. They went out of their way to ensure the experience was as positive as it could be. Everything was dealt with in a caring and sensitive manner.

I can honestly say that Sarah and the team at Full Circle made a really sad and difficult time, one that I will savour and never forget.

We appreciated the care and language used during the funeral arrangement. It was clear, informative and empowered the family to make informed decisions at a very sad time. Full Circle went above expectations, I especially appreciated the time put in it to find the right music to send my Mum off in the most perfect way possible.
