All about us

Arthur Holdsworth Funeral Services was founded by Arthur Holdsworth as an addition to his joinery business. 

Arthur created the service chapel on the current site in 1955. His son-in-law, Stanley Jowett, took over when Arthur passed away in 1977. Sadly, both Stanley and his wife Joyce passed away in 1986 within six months of each other. Their son Peter and son-in-law, Ian Chadwick, ran the business until it was sold in September 1987.

Soon after, Peter left the business and Ian stayed on until late 1988 when Peter and his wife Elizabeth moved away from the area.

Peter occasionally still calls in from time to time and has been impressed with the continued professional and caring service we provide to the local community of Bradford.

“We are proud of our heritage and hope to continue serving the families of Bradford for many years to come.”
