Highfields made a very difficult time much easier, showing compassion, respect and attention to detail throughout.
We found our funeral director Peter to be very kind, warm and helpful- which is invaluable at an upsetting time.
I would like to thank Highfields and especially Peter, for taking care of my Mum aswell as us.

The service I received at Highfield Funeral Directors in Huddersfield has been outstanding. All the staff have been brilliant, but especially Robyn, Marie and Kim. My Mum died in late August, we had the funeral nine weeks later and from the time my Mum arrived at Highfield's, the staff couldn't have been more helpful or charming, whilst always remaining professional. The Highfield staff ensured that my Mum's day was lovely and completely personalised. The committal was private but the full church service was well attended, with everyone saying how perfect it was for my Mum and that she'd have been very happy with it. The designer who produced the Order of Service did a fantastic job. I also received brilliant advice regarding budgeting and the financial support available, which was a necessary part of the process. The premises themselves are so clean and I was regularly offered drinks and sweets, during my chapel visits. The staff were always very sensitive, supportive and accommodating, during what was a very difficult time. I would definitely recommend Highfield Funeral Directors, I couldn't have asked for more from them, the service was second to none.
Response from Highfield Funeral Directors

The second time I have used Highfield's in just over a year and I can not fault the service from start to finish. The whole process ran smoothly and I was never left in any doubt throughout that there would be any unforeseen problems arising. I requested the same Funeral director this time for my Mother as I had last year for my Father which of course speaks for it's self.
Cost was not an issue for me so I don't know how you compare in price to other companies but if you are more expensive then I would only say that you get what you pay for.
Thank you again and best wishes although I hope we don't meet again anytime soon.

Could not recommend Highfield Funeral directors enough. Robyn was excellent and guided us through the process and made us feel like we were the only family she was looking after. She was empathetic and thoughtful and when last minute changes were made she went out of our way to ensure these changes were put in place. Thank you.

Andrew and his colleagues guided us through the funeral process with a calm and professional service. He made suggestions that were helpful and appropriate. Regular follow up calls were made to make sure that we were happy with the decisions that had been made. The family were particularly pleased with the video link facility that enabled relatives that were unable to attend to feel part of the ceremony. I am totally satisfied with service provided by Highfields Funeral Directors.

Highfield has been entrusted with family funerals for many years.

The service we received from John and his team couldn't be faulted. The process under Covid restrictions was clearly explained from start to finish. The funeral and cremation planning and delivery were all that the family could have wished for.

Many thanks

Today we had my Dad's funeral and Highfield's were amazing as usual.
We have used them three times now, and each time the attention to detail, professionalism, and empathy were second to none.
Louise organized My Dads funeral today and she was outstanding. Even though we had the restrictions of Covid, she made everything go smoothly and nothing was too much trouble, and because of this, I felt my Dad had the best send-off he could and everyone involved at Highfield's was fantastic.
I would recommend Highfield's without hesitation
Thank you, Louise and Highfields

We were very impressed with the service provided at a very difficult time.

We did have some teething problems getting the requested pieces of music for the service but Andrew worked with us to ensure the service went to plan.
He also kept in touch to discuss any issues and to finalise and smooth out any problems.
Within the constraints of the Pandemic my family and I felt we did eventually provide a loving farewell to my Husband and Father.
I would highly recommend Highfield to others in the future.
