About Full Circle
Our funeral directors offer an independent, flexible and tailored service that provides support to the bereaved, and reflects the life, personality and spirituality of the individual that has died.
Our Approach to Funeral Care
We will listen to you, and then tailor our support to meet your needs. With this in mind, we can see that some people want to be given clear guidance and direction. Whereas others would prefer to be told about their options.
Moreover, our team believe that good funeral care can be relaxing, and have a deep and meaningful impact on mental wellbeing. You will usually be supported by the same individual throughout the funeral arrangements and on the day of the funeral itself because we believe that continuity of care is really important.
Our Beginnings in Leeds
Our first office near Leeds was established in Guiseley in 2016. In 2019, we established our second office in the area at the Globe, in Bramley. Our funeral directors at Full Circle Funerals are now in a position to offer several services in and around the Leeds area.
Why Choose Our Funeral Directors?
Our team members in Leeds have a professional background in health, social or pastoral care, ensuring a professional, compassionate and dependable service. Full Circle Funerals also holds the award for the “Best Modern Funeral Director” in the national Good Funeral Awards and in 2021 we won “Green Funeral Director of the Year” and Sarah won “Funeral Director of the Year”. We really work hard to deliver a unique, person-centred service.
All funeral directors have different approaches. We have found that families are keen to travel a little further, in order to find a service that they feel is likely to specifically meet their needs. It is really important to us that you feel comfortable when you are with us. We’ve made every effort to ensure that each service offers a gentle, warm environment.
Our Service in Bramley
The Globe in Bramley is ideally located to support families who live anywhere in Leeds, and we believe that how a place looks and feels has a big impact on our experience. We were determined to create a funeral service that feels friendly, calm and peaceful so that you feel comfortable spending time there.
We have a large room with different seating options that we use when meeting with people and a warm and friendly visiting room where you can spend time with the person who has died, if you wish.

Funeral Directors Guiseley – Our Team
Like the rest of the team, Ruth has also changed careers having previously been a Microbiologist before joining the Full Circle Funeral Directors Guiseley team. Ruth is particularly aware of the emotional effects of death and passionately believes that everyone’s funeral should be as individual as the person was in life. She has a husband, one child, three cats and enjoys any time spent with friends and family who are spread far and wide around the country. She is a Dementia Friends Champion and Trustee at Bradford Bereavement Support.
Before supporting families as his role as Funeral Director, Martin worked as a cartoonist for a number of national publications and latterly he supported vulnerable adults by running the kitchen at a local community café. He has a wife, two daughters and two dogs and describes himself and an “enthusiastic amateur” musician – although we suspect he is a little more than that!
