We have used Joseph Tate’s earlier this year for my mother in laws funeral & then again for my brothers. Michelle talked us through everything and was very professional, friendly & compassionate, keeping in regular contact updating us along the way. It was all dignified and exactly what we had planned. I would definitely recommend them.

Joseph Tate's offered a 5 star service from beginning to end. Following mum's death we contacted Joseph Tate's and they could not have been more helpful and compassionate. Michelle kept us informed at every stage of the arrangements. Also the aftercare they provided was fantastic!

We cannot thank them enough for the support provided at a particularly difficult time for our family.

David and his team were very caring and helpful. David phoned regular to ask how I was and to keep me updated on how our arrangements were progressing. He was very understanding when I changed my mind with a couple of arrangements. David explained what would be different in the current circumstances, and made sure the day went smoothly, so I had nothing to worry about. I would highly recommend Joseph Tate Funeral Directors.

I have nothing but absolute respect for the people who performed my husbands funeral. From the very first contact, I received the utmost courtesy and kindness.
David was impeccable in his dealings with me, so very kind and respectful. A joy to speak to.
The celebrant, Debra, was absolutely perfect, I was sad to learn she is looking to retire 😔 as soo many more people will be deprived of her beautiful addresses to the congregations of loved ones. Such a beautiful person, I will be forever grateful to her for Paul’s send off.
If I could give 10 stars for the service from Tates, I most definitely would.
Response from Joseph Tate Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service.

Rating 5.0
I had not had to organise a funeral before and the staff at Joseph Tate guided me through the process. They asked for lots of details, which I was able to collect and feed back to them in my next phone call. The funeral happened during the covid restrictions in place during October 2020, so all the arrangements were made by phone and email, which worked well. The day of the funeral went smoothly. The only thing we weren't sure about was where those who attended the service at the crematorium could have a socially distanced chat afterwards.

After the passing of my father in November we opted to use Joseph Tate Funeral Directors on Tong Road, Leeds. I would highly recommend their service as they were excellent throughout. I arranged a consultation with David and he helped plan the funeral. He was brilliant throughout keeping in regular contact and making things as easy as possible at such a difficult time. The service was very professional and dignified and everything we agreed on. Would highly recommend and would definitely use them again in the Future.

We have used Joseph Tate twice in a very short time for both my Father and Mother in-law.
AS you can imagine this has been a very difficult time for us all.
However David and all the team at Joseph Tate were very helpful and remembered us from our previous visit.
They made everything so simple and straight forward with empathy and understanding.
And at not point in either visit did we feel we should buy this or have that.
David explained everything in detail and even rang us up after the funeral to make sure everything went ok as he wasn't in the that day.
I really hope we will not need to use this service again for a very long time.
However would have not hesitate in recommending them first class service.

If I could give a higher rating Joseph Tate would definitely deserve it! Stuart and his team planned my late mother's funeral with impeccable detail, going above and beyond to accommodate our final wishes.
They were incredibly helpful and understanding and I would recommend them to anyone who is in the unfortunate circumstances of planning a funeral.
Nothing was too much to ask and my Mum would have been proud of her final send off.
Thank you so much to all concerned,especially Stuart.
