H Bates Funeral Services of Bradford and Illingworth provide superior funeral services for the local community and can be contacted at any time to provide help and support when it comes to arranging a funeral for your loved one. From the moment you contact us, our personal and confidential service begins. We’ll work with you and your family right up to the point beyond when your loved one has been finally laid to rest. At H Bates Funeral Services all the necessary arrangements can be made at your home or at our private premises – the choice is entirely yours and you will never be hurried or pressured into making any decisions whatsoever. We want you to be happy with what you choose in regards to the funeral, so that you are able to put together a fitting tribute and farewell to the person you held so dear during their life. On your initial contact, we will require preliminary details, so we may arrange the removal of the deceased back to our private chapel as soon as possible. We can make full arrangements with yourself as to how you wish the funeral to be conducted. We can advise you on the procedures and legal requirements in all aspects of the funeral arrangements, and at H Bates Funeral Services we also provide a written estimate of all costs and written details of all the arrangements we have made on your behalf. We continually and consistently endeavour to make you feel comfortable with the funeral commitment you undertake with us. With us, you’re able to select from simple and dignified funerals, and we have eco-friendly options to offer you too. We’re also able to provide horse-drawn funerals should you want a grander and more traditional touch, and motorcycle funerals are also available should you feel that this would suit the wishes of the deceased.
