About us

We are here to give choices as much as service, choice of time, choice of music, choice of memorials, the care and dedication comes as standard. We recognise and understand that funerals are deeply emotional and the importance of getting everything perfect is what drives us.  

Our natural and unique gardens of tranquillity offer long-term comfort for the presently bereaved and for generations of families in the future. 

The 22-acre site near Busby Stoop, is close to both the A1 and A19 and is a short taxi ride from Thirsk train station. The site is nestled in a spacious thoughtfully designed landscape that allows visitors to take in views of the rolling Hambleton hills. The building has been designed to reflect light and its airy interior with views over open country is intended to uplift the spirits of those who enter. The intricately designed service hall accommodates 120 mourners plus additional room for standing and leads to a beautiful, covered floral display area.  

The single storey facility also includes a wake facility which can be hired out for a celebration of life and café with tranquil views out over the Hambleton hills, in which a quiet coffee can be enjoyed.  

The site offers an attentively designed memorial garden with naturally created areas for reflection. The relaxing water feature and pond provide a sense of calmness whilst encouraging wildlife to the meadow and surrounding wooded area.
