About Us

Established in 1952, George Brooke funeral directors offer compassionate funeral planning services to the North Kirklees area, including Dewsbury, Batley, Mirfield, Cleckheaton and Ossett. The office is open all week and 9am-2.30pm on Saturday.

A family-run and owned business, the George Brooke team promises to take the time to listen to a family’s requirements. Helen and Judith Brooke pride themselves on giving the bereaved help with all their needs during a difficult time, allowing them to plan the ideal bespoke funeral for their loved one.

George Brooke funeral directors work with families from all religious backgrounds and can cater to faith-specific needs, such as dedicated washing facilities for Hindu and Sikh families. They also have civil celebrants and humanist officiants for non-religious funeral services.

A chapel of rest is available for use at both the Dewsbury and Mirfield premises, as well as an area for holding funeral teas following ceremonies. George Brooke can also offer a hearse and three funeral vehicles for hire.

    Fantastic customer service. Very professional. Would highly recommend

  • 5 Tracy Evans 9th Apr 2019

    George Brooke provides an excellent service. Organising a funeral when your loved one has passed away is emotionally draining and they take the pressure and stress away and organise every aspect to a very high standard. My family have used them for years. I would highly recommend them.

  • 5 Andy Hellings 31st Mar 2019

    Thankyou for the recent care you have taken looking after my late mother in law. Every care was taken of her whilst she lay in rest at the funeral home and such thought and care was put into her last journey and the funeral service! Everything went so well ans she was given a class send off for a classy lady. Things we didnt think about were done and the proffessionalism of all staff was awesome! We would especially like to thank Helen from the bottom of our hearts for her personal service and would like to send her our love and gratitude from all the family x

    It was a really difficult time. My mother passed away on Christmas Eve late in the evening. Both the Hospice and Brooke’s were amazing. We had Helen to support us from the funeral service. She couldn’t have done any more. Kind, considering, supporting. I would recommend Brooke’s to anyone Thank you  Christine Hines
