Our York Funeral Directors

At J.Rymer Funeral Directors we have recently expanded so we can better serve our community. You can now find our funeral homes on Penley's Grove Street, Brook Street and at Millstone Cottage.

About Us

At J.Rymer Funeral Directors we feel incredibly lucky to be still serving our community today, under the management of the 6th generation of the Rymer family. First founded in 1848 by James Rymer, over the years we have developed incredible knowledge and expertise which we use to help arrange and conduct funeral services for the local people of York.
We are proud to have now expanded our brand to better serve the York community, by having 2 local funeral homes join us. Firstly, we have our funeral home in Selby, which was previously H H Chambers & Son. They are cherished by their local community, as they dedicate themselves to their role of ensuring that families in their care receive the consistent quality which they are known for.
Secondly, we have our funeral home at Millstone Cottage on Church Road, who were before known as Bryan Mills Funeral Directors. Outside of York city centre, Stamford Bridge has a private Chapel of Rest, where families can spend time alone with loved ones before the funeral.
Whichever funeral home of ours your visit, we hope that you notice the consistently high quality and respectful, dignified care for every family who we help. Our team are here to talk through your personal requirements and provide you with confidence that you are in safe hands.
If you need support arranging a funeral, please contact your local branch today.
