On The Day of the Funeral in Thirsk and Northallerton

Helping you every step of the way!

The funeral ceremony is the culmination of the work that has taken place since the death occurred and to many people the funeral cortège is the most important function of the funeral director.

The word funeral is derived from the Latin 'funerals' meaning, 'a torchlight procession.' Our funeral directors will be in attendance throughout the entire proceedings, whether you opt for a burial or cremation, to ensure smooth running of the event. They will ably fulfil the role of master of ceremonies to guide and direct the guests and oversee the funeral day.

As well as the funeral director, four members of staff will also be present as pallbearers if required, all dressed impeccably as befits the occasion.

Book of Memorial

As part of our funeral services in Thirsk and Northallerton, we are happy to organise a Memorial Book for you, a book which each person who attends the funeral can sign and leave special thoughts and words about your loved one.

Our staff will be happy to assist with the signing of the memorial book by all guests on the day for you.


Hill Brothers take care of every aspect of the funeral day including transportation of your loved one to the funeral and to their final resting place. We will also drive you and your family to the funeral and back to your chosen place i.e. pub, restaurant or simply back home.
