Excellent service from start to finish with Chris and Angie from H Eatons for my mother’s recent funeral and I would recommend to all. From the start, they were sympathetic and open/ friendly yet professional. Chris suggested Skipton crematorium which I had not considered. It was ideal, enabling many who could not attend in person to watch via a webcast and was much nicer than many other crematoria. Chris was clear and helpful in guiding me through the process, listened to my wishes and I felt valued as a customer of H Eatons. It was easy to contact wither Chris or Angie - they would return my calls promptly if not immediately available.
It significantly helped ease the process of what is usually a sad occasion. Thoroughly recommend H Eatons.

H Eaton & Sons were very professional and considerate every step of the away from initial contact to the day of the funeral and beyond.
We would certainly recommend their services.
Response from H Eaton & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for this positive recommendation, it is greatly appreciated. Our quality of care is something we are proud of and we know what a difference it makes to the families in their time of need.
Rating 5.0
Everything was arranged with such care, consideration and compassion, right down to the very last detail. I definitely felt that Mum was in the best hands.
When we saw her in the Chapel of Rest she looked lovely and that is a memory I will treasure.
Although it was a " lockdown" funeral it was beautiful. The suggestion have the longer part of it at Skipton crematorium was inspired. Mum would always have wanted a church service first, but I'm sure she would have loved the way it was done. We have had very positive feedback about the Live Stream too.
The care, both during and after by Chris was outstanding.
Thank you so much for all your help and kindness.

During these difficult sad times, the service we received from the funeral director and his secretary, really eased my anxiety and uncertainty.
They were very easy to talk to, helpful and understanding.
The celebrant provided was just perfect, and everything for mums funeral went to plan on the day, I had no worries at all.
Even though all preparations were done remotely, I still felt we were cared for very well, at this emotional time. Thank you

Would like to thank especially Chris Matthews for the care and consideration shown to my wife on her passing .
Chris is a friend of the family and obviously saw maria in better times .
Nothing was too much and the careful way he dealt with the information needed and help with registering the death and advice as tell once to inform agencies was very welcome , his attention to every detail was outstanding.
The organisation from church to cars flowers and filming the commemoration ,so relatives abroad could view was also appreciated ..Heatons did a fantastic service to us all and created a lovely service for my wife as well as could have been expected.
With heartfelt thanks to you all.
