About Us

Hammerton's Funeral Directors have roots at Worsbrough Dale going back over two hundred years. In the early days the business was located on Goose Holes Lane, adjacent to the former Dove and Dearne canal, near the Boatman's Rest Public House. As well as being the local undertakers, Hammerton’s were also wheelwrights and joiners. Their location near the canal, enabled timber for the joinery business, to be delivered by barge to their workshop, which for many years housed woodworking machinery which was steam driven.

Around the turn of the twentieth century, a generator was obtained to power the woodworking machinery by electricity. In 1907 when Francis Hammerton built a new house for the family, known as The Mount on Station Road (now Autumn House Nursing Home) this became the first house in the area to have electric lighting.

By this time the firm was involved with much of the house building in the expanding Worsbrough area and in 1901 were commissioned by local colliery owner Samuel Joshua Cooper to build the Church of St. James on West Street. Around 1925 the joinery workshop was moved from Goose Holes to a new building on Station Road (now occupied by Lowerdale Autos).

1984 saw the business move to larger premises on Wakefield Road, Barnsley where Hammerton’s are now firmly established as the areas leading funeral directors.

In 1977 Mr. Ian Hammerton took over the long established business at Thurnscoe of local funeral director George Bateman; the Dearne area office was relocated to new purpose built premises at Barnsley Road, Goldthorpe in 2011.

After Ian's untimely death in 2014, his wife Jane Hammerton took over the running of the business and Hammerton's continue to provide funerals to the same high standard as before.

A complete funeral service is offered including Private Chapels of Rest, modern fleet of Mercedes limousines and excellent catering facilities.

Floral tributes, funeral stationery and memorials can be arranged. A personal 24 hour service, 365 days of the year is available where you can be assured of a sympathetic, caring and professional approach
