The Dewsbury firm of Eric F. Box funeral directors is best summed up in its slogan – celebrating remarkable lives with memorable funerals. There was a time when a loved one’s passing was seen as something to be exclusively ‘mourned’. Now modern funeral direction is very much about celebrating life as much as it is about mourning someone’s death. And that it why Eric F. Box Funeral Directors continues to offer a range of services to meet a variety of needs. Whether it is a traditional Victorian funeral featuring a horse drawn hearse, top hats and impeccable pall bearers shouldering the coffin, or a so-called modern service featuring a colourful or themed coffin, Eric F. Box promises dignity at all times. We have been learning our craft for more than three centuries and, with a pedigree dating back to 1853, and the sixth generation of the Box family still in the business, it is safe to say that your are in good hands. Whatever the time of day or night a member of the Box team will pick up the phone. Dignity, love, care since 1853.

  • 5 Barry Jones 6th Mar 2019

    These funeral directors are first class, from the first phone call ( on a Sunday ) through to the funeral itself. Their fleet of vehicles is excellent as are all the personnel. First class service and advice from beginning to end. Thank You, it made a sad and difficult time a lot easier.

    I would like to express my gratitude for Eric F.Box Funeral Directors support, respect and patience on the day. Thank you for your excellent work.

  • 5 Adrian Summerscales 1st Mar 2019

    As a family and for myself I think it would be impossible to pick a better, more friendly or professional service than that provided by Eric F. Box. They have been extremely courteous, sympathetic and understanding and above all very patient and kind towards my bereft father. The whole team were extremely professional and helpful on the day of the funeral and things couldn't have gone more smoothly whilst their pre-funeral arrangements were spot on. I would like to thank Edward Box in particular for being so " brilliant "...no other word to describe him ! Thank you for everything.

  • 5 Lyn Goodwin 9th Feb 2019

    Obviously this is not a service you generally require very often, and as such, you have no expertise and rely very very heavily on the experience and service the Funeral Director provides. Well, my late mothers funeral was provided by Eric Box Funeral services. Andrew dealt with me on behalf of my mother. Andrew is the consummate professional. However, having said that, I realise that it was a team effort by Eric Box as a company and I can not think of one instance or item that could have been any better....everything  was done to the highest degree with the greatest dignity. I have dealt with many people and many organisations during my 50 years working life, Eric Box's sits well and truly at the top.

  • 5 Claire Shannon 8th Feb 2019

    It's never an easy thing to do; planning a funeral and going through all of the many details involved, but Edward and his team were so wonderful throughout. Supportive and professional every step of the way. We were so thankful for their assistance and informative responses. They looked after us, ensured that everything was just as we wanted it to be and made things that little bit easier and a lot less stressful. Thank you all so much for everything you did for us. It was hard to make those decisions, but we knew from the start that we were in safe hands and we were so glad to have Edward and the rest of the team at our sides throughout the process.

  • 5 Richard Lunn 8th Feb 2019

  • 5 Darren Pearson 22nd Dec 2018

    Eric F Box gave My Mum an Absolutely fantastic service. I'll forever be grateful for the way everything went. Picking her up from Bradford until the day of her Funeral.

  • 5 Paul Ward 14th Aug 2018

    We dealt with Sally for the funeral of Maria. She was dignified, patient, kind, and understanding. She talked gently thought the process and made all the arrangements for everything we wanted.  When we went to see Maria in the chapel of rest she just looked like she was sleeping.  Overall they did a fantastic job. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for everything. Maria’s family x

  • 5 John Dickinson 6th Aug 2018

    Professional and sensitive from start to finish. Sally was everything we needed at a very upsetting and stressful time. Nothing was too much trouble and she took all the pressure of arranging a funeral away. I would recommend them without hesitation.

  • 5 Robert Evans 20th Jul 2018

    As a family we have used Eric Box's for years simply because their service is second to none. Andrew recently carried out my Dad's funeral and he was excellent from start to finish. He provided a very dignified funeral service, collection of my dad from the hospital and the private viewing. Thank you so much Andrew
