About us

The loss of a loved one is something we all face in our lives. It is a difficult time and the last thing you need is the burden of organising the funeral. That’s why, at Geoff Leather Independent Funeral Directors, we offer a service providing all aspects of funeral care and arrangements beginning from the moment you contact us. We believe in providing a service to help ensure arrangements are as stress free as possible, leaving you free to be with your family and friends.

Since being established, our family run business has grown from strength to strength, ensuring that all families are given personal attention. Hence, we have developed an outstanding reputation within the local community, for offering a caring funeral service for all faiths as well as non-religious funeral services.

We pride ourselves on offering a personal and flexible approach to funeral arranging and directing. We are on hand to assist and advise, but our main function is to provide a service based upon your wishes. A funeral can only take place once, and being an “independent” we can accommodate families and their loved ones with a more amenable approach in comparison to non-independent funeral directors, owned by conglomerates.

Our team is staffed by knowledgeable people who care about the community and want to provide a compassionate, professional service. Rest assured your calls will be taken with complete confidentiality. We can also arrange for a home visit if you are unable to come to us. Nothing is too much trouble and we pride ourselves on the service we provide. Our aim is to carry out your requests with the utmost dignity and attention to detail.

We arrange funerals that reflect and incorporate the wishes of the individual, family and friends. We can advise on all aspects of the funeral service including; cremations and burials, choice of coffins, flower arrangements and charitable donations.
So whether it is a simple funeral, a traditional funeral, an alternative funeral or an extravagant occasion, we are able to provide you with a totally personal and completely bespoke service.

Whether you want to know more about what we can offer you, or want to discover more about our competitive prices, please give us a call.

Our aim is to keep our services high and our prices very competitive.
