As well as being on hand to explain the different choices people have when arranging a funeral for themselves or someone else, the Yorkshire funeral director will be joined by local craftspeople to demonstrate some unique ways to remember those who have died.

Sustainable artists Sami Lovett, who makes handcrafted wooden signs, will be on the stand on the Tuesday, making bespoke memorial designs, and on the Thursday a wood artist from Mindful Memorials will be carving a Yorkshire rose.

There will be an eco hearse on display and an environmentally friendly coffin made out of wool.

David Billington of Full Circle Funerals on Skipton Road said demand for a fresh, friendly and personal approach to funerals had never been higher, with many people also interested I reducing their environmental impact at their funeral and after death.

“People are definitely starting to ask us more questions about doing things differently, whether that’s asking for information so that they can make one or two more sustainable choices or discussing how to make a funeral more personalised,” he said.

Full Circle Funerals was founded by former NHS surgeon Sarah Jones and David, who is a funeral director at Full Circle Funerals in Harrogate, worked in adult social care and mental health before becoming a funeral director.

David said: “Having a background in healthcare definitely helps us to approach everything from a wellbeing perspective, which is so important when we are supporting someone who has been bereaved.”
