Highfield's at Huddersfield branch were very professional, with a kind and courteous manor. The team that dealt with Mr Overtons funeral made a very difficult day run smoothly. A few of the team knew my father so it felt like a personal touch. Ian dealt with everything and I could not have been happier on how the day turned out, everyone who attended stated what a lovely service it was, so a big thanks to Ian for organising it all. Also would like to say a big thank you to Anna the humanist for her kind words and how she spoke about my father. Could not recommend Highfield's enough for their service and aftercare.
Response from Highfield Funeral Directors

We have been very pleased with the service provided from Highfield. Ian was incredible, he was so supportive, thorough and guided us honestly along the way. He understood our needs and made us feel valued at all times. He was respectful to our wishes and we have left with a huge relief and sense that we gave our Dad/husband the best send off from the best funeral home. The team he brought on the day were also fantastic. The vehicles used are the best and the atmosphere in the funeral home was wonderful. He explained what we should be doing at each stage along the day. Also the detail and support in submitting the funeral notice/acknowledgement was greatly appreciated. Thank you to all at Highfield.

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
