A century of tradition and four generations of the same family make up the business George Steele & Son Funeral Directors.
David and Christine Steele and their son Richard have served the communities of Ossett, Horbury and Wakefield, trading from their Joiners and Funeral Directors business for most of their lives.
With David having worked in the business for nearly 70 years, the business was taken over by Richard’s Great Grandfather Frank Burn, already an experienced cabinet maker and undertaker, in 1919, after the death of previous owners GF Heald and Son JF Heald.
David’s father George Steele took over and re-named the business to George Steele & Son Funeral Directors in 1949 with David Joining after leaving school.
George Steele & Son Funeral Directors preserve the standards that were set by our predecessors. To that end, our staff respect the local traditions and are familiar with the Ossett, Horbury and Wakefield communities.
