About Us

    About George Steele & Son Funeral Directors

    A century of tradition and four generations of the same family make up George Steele and 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 for most of their lives. 

    The team at our Ossett funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. 

    Here at George Steele & Son Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
