Thank you for making a very difficult time a little bit easier for the family. A professional yet friendly service.

At such a sad and emotional time as losing a loved one arrangements for a funeral can be daunting. At J G Fielder & Son Pocklington everthing was taken care of by Paul and Julie at the Pocklington office. I was very impressed by the care and understanding taken when I asked for Peter to be buried in Pocklington albeit we lived in Thirsk. A limousine was sent to Thirsk for me and family to taken to the funeral. From start to finish everything was very efficient and carefully planned. I thank everyone who was involved in the arrangements.

JG Fielder and Sons conducted the funerals of both my parents  - 3 years apart. I give them an unreserved recommendation to anyone seeking a funeral Director that has compassion, genuine sympathy for the bereaved family, and gentle professional efficiency for handling all the necessary affairs leading up to and including the funeral service: their approach and conduct was very much appreciated by all concerned.
