About Us

    About A N Abraham Funeral Directors

    A N Abraham Funeral Directors was established in 1994. All the staff at A N Abraham Funeral Directors live and work within the local community. We organise funerals for people in South Elmsall, South Kirkby, Upton, Ackworth, Hemsworth and their surrounding areas. 

    The teams at our South Elmsall and Hemsworth funeral homes will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. 

    Here at A N Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
