Hello and Welcome

Based in York, Hand in Hand Funerals is a contemporary funeral service which offers a holistic approach to funeral directing, incorporating end of life care and bereavement support for those who need it.

My aim is to empower people to create beautiful, bespoke funerals which truly reflect the person who has died and the life they have lived.

I understand that planning a funeral can feel overwhelming but will gently guide you through the options available and provide you with the right level of support to enable you to have the funeral that is right for you.

As a trained and experienced independent funeral director, I can be completely flexible in my approach in order to meet your needs and whether you want to make some of the arrangements yourself, or would prefer me to make them on your behalf, I want you to feel in control throughout the process.

I am there to facilitate your wishes, rather than direct them.

Arranging a funeral in this way allows you to create a ceremony which honours the individual and enables you to say goodbye in a personal and meaningful way.

This can have a profoundly positive impact on your grief.

Coming from a background in palliative care, you can trust that the person who has died will be cared for in the kindest, most gentle way possible. I can also support family or friends to be involved in their care too, should they wish. To find out more about how I care for the person, please see the link below.

I am also passionate about funeral affordability and have signed the Fair Funerals Pledge, to show my commitment to honest and transparent pricing.

So, whether you are planning a funeral for yourself or a loved one, or require end of life support, please do not hesitate to call me and I will do everything I can to help.

With love, Kerry
