I W Myers Funeral Directors

I W Myers Funeral Directors are reputed to be the oldest established family funeral directors in Britain. It was founded over 300 years ago in 1701, in Wheldrake, York when the Myers family were undertakers, joiners and wheelwrights.

James Myers joined the firm in 1999 and continued in the Myers tradition after his late grandfather, Ian William Myers, passed away in February 2005. In 2011, James, due to ill health, was unable to continue to run the business. Together, we entered a funeral partnership to support the business in this difficult time. 


Having worked with J G Fielder & Son for over 30 years, James approached us and asked if we would take over the business, knowing that we would look after his family name. James' health has now thankfully improved. He now manages his family's Monumental Masons in Wheldrake. James offers a valued complementary service to the family business. 

We aim to give families a very high standard of service. We pride ourselves on being caring and compassionate, in times which are probably the hardest any person will ever have to go through. From our reviews, you can see how grateful families our for our support. 

JG Fielder & Son offices in York, Tadcaster, Pocklington, Market Weighton, Easingwold and Wheldrake. Our funeral directors are also able to conduct funeral services nationwide and are here to help you day or night 7 days a week.

If you need our support in the Wheldrake or surrounding areas, please contact us by calling 01904 448283 or email We are here to help, whenever you need us.
