Sharing our understanding helps our clients to make clear, educated choices and therefore providing certainty for themselves and for the people they will leave behind.

We also count ourselves as being very lucky, because we are one of the only funeral firms in Leeds, to have an active role with both Dying Matters Leeds and with Leeds Bereavement Forum. This means we have unparalleled access to information and advice on all matters relating to end of life planning and bereavement help. And the best bit is, we love sharing with people like you!

As part of our sharing ethos; we've held group meetings, Death Cafés, funeral plans and Wills and probate surgeries - all of which are free of charge, open to the public and approved by our professional partners. Check our Blog for the latest information.

Our partnership withDying Matters Leeds, gives us a unique insight into the importance of end of life planning, putting your wishes down on paper and talking to your family about what you want to happen when nature takes its course. Timely planning - ahead of illness or infirmity, will avoid awkward and uncomfortable conversations toward the end of a person's life.

"I can honestly say that I had a very sad situation of burying my grandmother, made easier to deal with the support and guidance of all those at the Hugh Gooding Funeral Services.

Due to their kindness, respect and transparency I then advised a family member to get information about a Pre-Paid Plan. My relative said that she was made to feel at ease, and has since paid for her funeral in full as she wanted to prepare for the future.

Death unfortunately is inevitable and very distressing, since burying my grandmother I've realised that we can make these situations a little easier to manage if we're prepared in terms of the finances."
