Funeral Directors Hebden Bridge

Independent funeral directors serving Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and the rest of Calderdale.


We’re a small, ethical, green funeral service supporting families and community around Hebden Bridge. Natural Endings is an independent company with over twenty-five year’s experience between us.

Funeral directors Lisa and Rosie offer a fresh approach to funerals. Instead of following rigid traditions we listen to what you need and help you create a farewell that is unique. Our mission is to look after you, the person that has died and the planet. We believe that when a funeral is done well it can be a transformational experience. We also provide same female-led care of your loved one at our dedicated facility in Todmorden.

At the heart of Natural Endings ethos is a desire to help families to have a beautiful, unique and fitting farewell for their loved one.

The families that we support choose all kinds of funerals. You might want a funeral that is green, traditional or even something so simple that no one feels the need to attend (also know as direct cremations). We support you and can either put in place your ideas or offer suggestions for creating a funeral that reflects your loved one’s personality and unique life.

We’re one of the founding members of the Association of Green Funeral Directors (established in 2009) and are specialists in woodland burials and work closely with sites in this area. We also have a good knowledge of traditional local cemeteries in lovely rural locations.

We can also arrange attended and unattended cremations at Park Wood Crematorium, Oakworth Crematorium, Huddersfield Crematorium, Shay Grange Crematorium (Bradford) and beyond.

As well as arranging funerals in places of worship we have lots of experience of creating farewells in secular spaces. In Hebden Bridge there are lots of amazing spaces available including Wainsgate Chapel, The Birchcliffe Centre, The Town Hall and the Picture House. Sometimes being outside for a ceremony can be very special so we’ve arranged funerals in woodlands or even a family’s own garden. We also have a beautiful hall in Todmorden where the funeral ceremony can take place.

You can have a full funeral with your loved one’s coffin present at any of these venues and then go to the crematorium or burial ground for the committal. Alternatively, some families don’t feel the need to attend the committal.

We understand that cost can be an important factor in arranging a funeral. Our pricing is clear and transparent. We can suggest ways of making a funeral more affordable. We also recommend comparing our prices to other local funeral directors.

We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week all year to support you if you need any support or information.
