Radcliffe - Funeral Service

Gwen & Andrew Schofield

Radcliffe Funeral Service was established in Honley in 1964, by Gwen's father, Brian Radcliffe.

On leaving school in 1976 Gwen joined the family business of joiners and funeral directors. Gwen followed in her father's footsteps and qualified as embalmer in 1983 as well as passing the Diploma in Funeral Directing with the NAFD the same year.

In 2009 Gwen's husband Andrew joined the business and premises in Kirkheaton were purchased and refurbished. In April 2012 Andrew obtained his diploma in funeral directing. More recently in 2014 we opened our second funeral home in Honley. Both our Honley and Kirkheaton premises have private chapels and spacious welcoming areas.

We are both members of the British Institute of Funeral Directors, BIFD. Gwen is also a member of the British Institute of Embalmers, BIE and was awarded fellowship of the Institute in February 2013.

We are also members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, NAFD, Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, SAIF and both have a strict code of practice that is adhered to.
