Full Circle Funerals has expanded into Harrogate, with a new site opening at a retail unit in the town.
Janice Lloyd and Caroline Walker will both lead the Harrogate branch. Lloyd has previously worked as a funeral director, while Walker will begin her position in March after having worked as a deputy manager at a school.
The funeral service also has branches in Leeds, Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield, among others. The service was one of the first funeral firms to use the all-electric eco-hearse, after commissioning designer Steven Cousins, to adapt a Nissan Leaf into a environmentally-friendly hearse.
Full Circle Funerals founder, Sarah Jones, said: “We have expanded into Harrogate as a direct result of increasing numbers of people from the area using our Guiseley service and giving us really good feedback.
“We’ve now helped lots of people from Harrogate, to create or pre-plan meaningful funerals, by offering personalised support and a completely transparent pricing system, as well as all the information and time that’s required. This helps to create a profound funeral that is genuinely helpful for those attending.”
She added: “We’re really looking forward to building on this success in Harrogate and we have been fortunate to attract a high calibre team in Janice and Caroline.
“All this combines to create a fantastic facility where people can receive as much or as little support as they require, as well as seeing all the options available to create both traditional and modern funerals that will truly reflect the life, personality and spirituality of the individual that has died.”
