Full Circle Funerals

Established: 2016 / Locations: 4 across Yorkshire / Business: Independent Funeral Directors

Full Circle Funerals was founded by Sarah Jones in 2016 and has enjoyed rapid growth across Yorkshire as a result of its modern, welcoming and person-centred approach. The core team, who have joined the business from variety of backgrounds, offer a caring and contemporary approach to funeral service, aiming to provide an empowering experience that enables families to feel connected at every step when planning a loved one’s funeral.

Rather than be bound by tradition, Full Circle Funerals aims to put every family’s needs first, and create a funeral service centred on choice. The team has been recognised for its approach winning Funeral Director of the Year and Green Funeral Director of the Year in the 2021 National Green Funeral Awards.

“We’re very proud to offer a service which is distinct, allowing families to choose what’s best for them without the need to necessarily follow traditional paths. We support families at every step; helping people plan their own funerals, guide those who are planning a funeral for someone else and offer signposting to bereavement support too.”

– David Moon, Funeral Director

As a result of this fresh approach, the team has delivered a varied range of funeral services including home funerals, natural burials and celebration of life events, as well as more traditional options in churches, chapels and crematoria.

“Our aim is to support families to create funerals which are helpful, consoling and meaningful. It’s an honour and a privilege to support people to express their wishes and to help them understand the choices available when arranging a funeral for someone they love.”

– Sarah Jones, Funeral Director

In 2021, Full Circle Funerals became a Certified B Corp, recognising the team’s commitment to creating a positive impact on people, the local community and the planet. The accreditation supports the company’s focus on being a force for good, and achieving the highest possible standards of social, community and environmental impact. As part of this commitment, one of the most recent projects that Full Circle Funerals supported was a network of local art exhibitions which showcased expressions of loss, helping share different aspects of grief and dispelling some of the taboos when talking about death.

Working with Tributes

Full Circle Funerals chose to work with Tributes after searching the web for UK suppliers to the funeral sector. The team were attracted by the natural designs of the Tributes range, and its unique teardrop design coffin shape, alongside its other traditional options. These became a welcome addition to Full Circle Funerals’ offering and Tributes high quality, reasonably priced woven coffin and ashes urns range has been well received by families across the region. The team also appreciate being able to offer highly personalised name plates from Tributes, and on a number of occasions have offered copies of these as keepsakes to families.

“We very much enjoy working with Tributes, and always experience a very efficient and personal service, with up-to-date information on shipping and delivery which helps us manage expectations at every stage of our own work with families.”

– Sarah Jones, Funeral Director

The Full Circle Funerals team value the Tributes product range and enjoy the ability to order when needed with prompt, efficient delivery times. Recently Tributes were able to help Full Circle Funerals swiftly respond to a family who wanted a white painted teardrop woven coffin with name plates carrying personalised motifs. On this occasion a simple brief was shared with Tributes about what the family were hoping to achieve, and example options of what was both possible and appropriate were quickly communicated back to the team organising the funeral.

“We knew Tributes had a strong reputation in the sector, and our team has been able to experience this first hand over the time we’ve been working with them. We value their products and service, which in turn helps us look after the needs of the families we work with.”
