  4. W. Bowers

    Whether you are arranging a funeral now or planning for the future - we'll do everything we can to help you remember your loved one. We'll guide and support you as much as you need us to, reassuring you that everything is in safe hands. Life deals few blows more shattering than the loss of a loved one. But when a relative or friend is taken from you, there are decisions that you have to make. Decisions to make sure your fond memories are preserved with dignity and grace. For over 60 years we have helped cushion the blow of bereavement and helped to make the right decisions. For most we have been a guiding light leading to peace of mind. For many we have provided reassurance and encouragement to face the future with confidence. For others we have simply been the companion needed to fill a void. Preserving dignity with care and sensitivity is not a goal - it's our starting point.

Although it is styled as a Town Council, it has the same status in law as a Parish Council. Knaresborough is one of the 148 parishes within the Harrogate Borough Council area, which includes Ripon, Pateley Bridge and Boroughbridge.
