Providing a very personal service includes taking time to gain an understanding of you and your family’s values and beliefs and what is important to you.
You might want a funeral that is eco, modern, traditional or totally unique. You may even want a cremation that no one attends and then you have a gathering later on. We work closely with you and can either fulfil your ideas or offer appropriate suggestions for creating a funeral that reflects your person’s unique personality.
We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week all year to support you if you need any support or information.
Established in 2005 we’re an independent female led company recognized for our experience arranging green funerals and woodland burials. We also arrange cremations at Park Wood Crematorium and beyond. Our funeral home is close by in Todmorden. We can make arrangements with crematoriums, cemeteries, places of worship, ministers and celebrants that you’re familiar with. Or once we know a bit about you and your family we can make other suggestions based on our local knowledge.
If the crematorium doesn’t feel like the right venue to say goodbye then your person’s funeral service can be held our beautiful ceremony space in Todmorden. Up to one hundred guests can gather and reflect on their life for as long as you all need. If Todmorden feels too far there are many other secular venues that we can hold a service in Hebden Bridge.
Our valley has a rich history of the non-conformist movement, some of those amazing chapels are also available for religious and non religious services. Examples being Wainsgate Chapel and The Birchcliffe Centre. Other venues for a service locally include the Town Hall and the Hebden Bridge Picture House.
We’ve also arranged services in family’s own homes and gardens, art studios, function rooms and community spaces. Alternatively you might like the simplicity of having the service at the crematorium or graveside.
We are recognized for our knowledge of woodland burial and are founder members of Association of Green Funeral Directors. But we also have a full knowledge of some of the traditional cemeteries in the valley so can also give information about some nice rural ones that still have grave spaces available.
Our funeral home in Todmorden is a tranquil space to visit. But we also understand that you might feel more comfortable having us visit you at home to talk to you about funeral arrangements.
We have found that since we started in 2005 that families are willing to travel a little further to work with a funeral director that they feel is a good fit and takes time to understand their needs.
We offer many different options but want to keep choices and costs easy to understand.
We consider our costs very reasonable compared to many other funeral services. We are transparent about our pricing. A funeral is tailored to your needs so that you aren’t paying for a ‘package’ that has items that you don’t need in it. In order to make pricing understandable we show some ‘example funerals’ at the end of this downloadable price list.
As well as hosting funerals and memorials in our space in Todmorden we also host a range of therapeutic activities for bereaved people. We also host other creative activities like art exhibitions and workshops.
As well as holding memorials and funeral services in our hall it is also for hire for trainings, rehearsals, quiet gatherings and community events.
We work with local charity Treesponsibility (natural flood management) and donate towards local tree planting in order to offset the carbon foot print of each funeral that we arrange.
