This is an excellent funeral director. They understand the difficult time and are extremely helpful and sympathetic. Nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for making a difficult time less stressful than it might have been.

I could not recommend the services of G.E. Hartley & Son Funeral Directors more confidently. I have used their services on two occasions, both of which have been exceptional. In our weakest, most fragile times, Stewart and the team at Hartley’s take everything away in terms of worry, confusion and despair. They are attentive, compassionate and incredibly comforting, owning the whole process from start to finish. Hartley’s explain the details, options, and procedures throughout and provide you, as the family, complete peace of mind that everything will be handled with dignity and respect. On each occasion, Hartley’s have provided a service befitting of our loved ones that allowed us the opportunity, support and service to say goodbye with dignity, respect and love. In our time of need, Hartley’s were there. I will forever be thankful to Stewart and the team, and could not recommend them more highly.

Thank you to Stewart & team for your support and professionalism throughout. It is so important at a time like this to have complete confidence in your funeral director which we did. Thank you for being personable and reassuring.

During 2020 Hartleys helped with the funerals of both my Nan and Grandad which were sadly very close together. Grandad's funeral was especially hard as it took place during the Covid crisis. My Mum and I could not have been happier with the service we received for both funerals through the entire process. At all times Hartley's were friendly, helpful, understanding, compassionate and professional and we felt that they made a difficult time more manageable for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Hartleys to anyone needing funeral services in the East Leeds area and extend my thanks and appreciation to Russel, Stuart and everyone else who helped us from there this year.

G E Hartley and Son steered my family through the painful process of organising our Mum's funeral in Covid times with utmost professionalism and compassion from the start. The staff are all helpful, patient and kind. I must give a special mention to James who was our personal undertaker and thank him for his calm and friendly care at such a difficult time. He was wonderful. I would thoroughly recommend Hartley and Son to anyone. Thank you all once again.

This funeral directors had the honour of helping me with the closure of the passing of a brilliant man, my grandad. They were very considerate and helped my grandma in so many ways, they were helpful and very nice through the whole thing and I would highly recommend their service. 10/10.
