Very friendly, personal & sympathetic service provided by Hayley and her team.  Helpful advice was given all my wishes taken into consideration.  It’s not a service you want to use in the first place but Hayley made the whole process as stress free as was possible.  Would certainly recommend Hayley Owen Funeral Services.

Hayley Owen's is a unique place and has recently been perfect, twice, for our family. Delightfully quirky, genuine and with no request deemed too small or tall, Hayley and team helped us to navigate the funeral process, to ensure we felt we had the 'right', personal experience in saying Farewell to our Parents.  I thoroughly recommend Hayley Owen Funeral Directors in York.

We had excellent service from Jon Kirkham. He was kind, attentive and very professional. I have used Fielders three times now and each time they have been superb at a very difficult time for me.
