Yorkshire funeral service expands into Harrogate with £200k investment
Yorkshire based funeral service Full Circle Funerals is expanding into Harrogate town centre this month as part of a £200k investment creating several new jobs.
Full Circle Funerals has transformed a former retail unit on Skipton Road into a modern and welcoming funeral planning facility complete with private meeting areas, visiting rooms, office space and a suite for intimate ceremonies.
Funeral directors Janice Lloyd and Caroline Walker have been appointed to manage the Harrogate service, alongside a team of funeral assistants.
The company opened its doors in 2016 and three years later opened a second site in Bramley near Leeds.
Full Circle Funerals has also pioneered a range of industry innovations including being one of the first in the UK to acquire an electric eco-hearse, which is now available in Harrogate to complement its range of traditional funeral vehicles.
Full Circle Funerals’ founder, Sarah Jones, said: “We have expanded into Harrogate as a direct result of increasing numbers of people from the area giving us really good feedback and using our Guiseley service.
“We’ve now helped lots of people from Harrogate to create or pre-plan meaningful funerals, by offering personalised support and a completely transparent pricing system, as well as all the information and time that is required. This helps to create a profound funeral that is genuinely helpful for those attending.
“We’re really looking forward to building on this success in Harrogate and we have been fortunate to attract a high calibre team in Janice and Caroline.
“All this combines to create a fantastic facility where people can receive as much or as little support as they require, as well as seeing all the options available to create both traditional and modern funerals that will truly reflect the life, personality and spirituality of the individual that has died.”
