We make it easy for you to create the funeral that you want

Our funeral directors will first listen to you, and then tailor our support to meet your needs. We recognise that some people want to be given clear guidance and direction whereas others would prefer to be informed about their options so that they feel empowered to make the choices that are right for them.

If you find yourself needing to make funeral arrangements and would like to know where to find accessible information about your choices and the arrangement process, then you might find our funeral arranging podcast or funeral arranging guide helpful.

Full Circle Funerals in Harrogate is recommended in the Good Funeral Guide which means that we have been inspected and you can be assured that we achieve the high standards of care that they expect.


As modern funeral directors, everything we do helps people feel connected after bereavement

Although our funeral directors service in Harrogate opened in January 2020, we have been funeral directors since 2016 and everyone in our small team has a professional background in health, social or pastoral care.  We hold the award for the “Best Modern Funeral Director” in the national Good Funeral Awards because we work hard to deliver person-centred support, making sure that you are at the centre of everything that we do.

It is a very difficult time & planning my husbands funeral was not something I expected to be doing anytime soon. It was important for me to know he was being treated with care & respect. It was good to have guidance & support in making his service how we wanted it.

Whilst there were choices which had to be made at each stage of the process these were made as easy as possible, rechecked regularly and I was able to change my mind and do something different if I felt the need to do so. Read more

I was very pleased for the coffin Full Circle found for my mother; it was a joy to look at and i gave me a great deal of comfort during the service to know it was exactly what she would have chosen herself. It was easy to communicate with David both by phone and email. He made sure I was fully aware of what was going on at all times and offered help with the florist and celebrant, liaising with them to make sure things went smoothly and removing the burden and worry. The whole process was comforting and as stress-free as it could be. The added complication of the coronavirus outbreak was carefully managed and did not impact as much as it could on the whole process. I was very impressed with the eco credentials of Full Circle. The Ecohearse is amazing – clearly a hearse but without being austere(?). Also very grateful for the tree dedication with Make It Wild.


It was above and beyond any expectations that we had. Read more

I had googled ‘Direct Cremations’ and although most were cheaper than Full Circle, none offered the level of service that we received. Lucy became a friend to Wendy. She even encouraged her to eat. Nothing was too much trouble. When Wendy died, I didn’t need the same level of support but the service was wonderful. I would recommend Full Circle to anyone.


All went very smoothly and relieved us of a great deal of stress. David could not have been more helpful and supportive throughout. Read more

We wanted something more personal and more sympathetic than traditional funeral directors and were very happy with our choice.


We had a very full, detailed discussion with David at an early stage and although not everything was decided then, there was clarity about all the fundamentals and possibilities. Read more

Overall, an excellent service. Efficient and personal.
