About our Elland funeral home

Simpsons Funeral Directors has conducted bespoke funeral services for generations. Edwin Simpson, a well known and respected builder and joiner, founded the company, and worked hard to build a reputation for providing great service.

We continue to provide the highest standards of care today. By working together to help you with the arrangement of your loved one’s farewell, we ensure that every detail is just the way you want it to be. If you would prefer a non-traditional style of funeral, such as a woodland burial, or a colourful celebration of life, we can cater for that too.

Our funeral home in Elland welcomes families from all cultures and backgrounds, and you are free to visit us should you wish. With a large service chapel holding up to 40 people, we are able to accommodate a variety of services.

Most importantly, we want you to know that we are here to support you at this difficult time. We understand how tough it can be to lose a loved one, and our dedicated team will do everything they can to help advise, guide and support you at every step.

Frequently asked questions

  • When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.


  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.


  • Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.


  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.


  • Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.

Donald from Simpson's handled both my father's and mother-in-laws funerals at short notice and with great sensitivity and care. We haven't had to deal with a death directly before and Simpson's made the process easy for us and treated both our loved ones with great dignity and allowed us to say our farewells in a way that felt right for all the family. Thank you Daryl & Janet

I couldn't have been more pleased with the funeral services that we had for my Dad. Nothing was too much trouble, especially considering I was over a hundred miles away trying to organise everything. Compassionate, understanding, professional team who undoubtedly take great pride in all that they do; a fitting send off for my Dad in every way. Thank you
