    About Huddersfield Funeral Home

    Our purpose built premises have been located on St Thomas’ Road since 1937 and we are one of the oldest funeral homes in Huddersfield, committed to providing the best level of service to families within the local community.

    The team at our Huddersfield funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. Our funeral home has its own service venue on-site.

    Here at Huddersfield Funeral Home we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
