Katrina and Tim Leech established their funeral company in Leeds in 2012 and daughter Rebecca joined in 2016.

The passion to open the business began after the expert training Katrina received at Green Fuse Training in Devon, where she trained to be a civil celebrant and funeral director.

The original business in Leeds has grown organically on reputation due to the personal service and unique and fitting farewells families have experienced.

Katrina and Rebecca are both from Todmorden with Rebecca living in Walsden.  They have a vision to expand the business in Todmorden as they feel the offering of a more bespoke service is missing from Todmorden and surrounding areas.

Rebecca Barnes, Funerals with heart and Soul

Hi, I’m Rebecca; I am the main funeral arranger in Todmorden, and daughter of Funeral Director Katrina. I specialise in the more alternative ceremony and am passionate about raising awareness of Green Funerals in the local area.

In addition, and to complement my role as funeral arranger I am training to become a death doula with the organisation Living Well Dying Well. Doulas are trained in supporting people at the beginning (birth doula) and end of life. ‘End of life Doulas’ walk alongside the individual, their family and their community as an informed companion.
