About Us

Gooding Funeral Services is a family-run service that’s been a part of our city for three generations, caring for bereaved families in Leeds and across the North.

Our warm and friendly team works closely with the clients we serve, to provide a funeral which meaningfully reflects the life, tradition and beliefs of their loved one.

As a trusted independent funeral home based in the heart of the city, we believe that every person’s funeral should be distinct and special, whether it’s a traditional ceremony, a contemporary celebration of life, or the simple and fuss-free occasion they wished for.
Our inclusive funeral service caters to people of all faiths, as well as people of no religious belief and those who cared for the environment. We provide specialist bathing facilities for communities where these observances form an important part of religious funeral rites and customs.
As an independent company, our strength lies in listening, understanding and arranging things according to our clients’ wishes. We are here to help, every day of the year and around the clock – and are happy to provide obligation-free advice and estimates.
From woodland burials to affordable options with flexible, interest-free and easy-pay options, every funeral we arrange is important to us.
We offer a wide range of services, including in-house bereavement support from our dedicated grief recovery specialist and advice about matters such as registering a death and who must be notified when someone dies.
Our broad selection of options and services cover every aspect of arranging a funeral, and includes a wide range of coffins and caskets, a choice of beautiful floral tributes, transport including limousines and hearses, catering and dove releases, traditional and contemporary cremation memorials and memorial masonry.
We are also happy to oversee the management of charitable donations and place online and newspaper notices and offer the design and print of order of services.

For clients who wish to hold a loved-one’s funeral overseas, or to arrange for a loved one to be returned to the UK for their burial or cremation, we offer an international repatriation service. In addition to this, we can arrange non-invasive, post-mortems for Coroner approved coroner cases by Digital Autopsy.
Our tailored services will ensure an occasion which truly reflects the memory of the person you have lost. Please call us and let us know how we can help.

  • 5 Edwin Grant 4th Jul 2017

    Gooding Funeral Services was professional throughout the difficult process of the funeral, and did everything in their power to make it as easy as possible. They provided information and advice to guide us through the funeral process, as we had never done this before, and was thorough in breaking down the structure of the funeral in simple terms. They also allowed out of hours access to my sister if required, as well as out of hours contact details in case emotional support was needed.  I could offer no better company for a funeral, and we will certainly use them again. 

    Gooding Funeral Services replied
    Dear Edwin Thank you for your wonderful review of our services. It truly was an honour to serve you and your family, as you laid Michala to rest with love and dignity. The service was a lovely celebration of her life and was a credit to you and your family. We remain at your service should you need us. Peter.
