About Us

    About Turners Funeral Service

    Turners Funeral Service have been serving the local communities of Conisbrough and Bramley and the surrounding areas since 1985.

    The teams at our Conisbrough and Bramley 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.

    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.

    Meet the Team

    Clive Kirk


    Former owner Clive Kirk began his funeral career in 1995 as a casual bearer before rising to the position of funeral operative. Three years later, he joined Turners under then-owner Ernest Turner.

    Clive earned his NAFD Diploma in 2000 and wanted to set out on his own with experience under his belt, so he and his wife Lesley agreed to purchase Turners from Ernest the following year.

    Clive received his embalming certificate from the British Institute of Embalmers in 2006. He also became a member of the British Institute of Funeral Directors and served as their National President in 2011 and 2012, gaining a Fellowship and later becoming a tutor.

    Clive looks forward to enjoying retirement with Lesley and continuing to support Turners as a consultant, with Leanne and Ian staying on as a manager and funeral director, respectively.

    Leanne Rookledge


    Leanne joined Turners Funeral Service in April 2013, having previously worked as a Legal Advisor for Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.

    She says “there are not many jobs where you get the opportunity to help people everyday through the most difficult time in their lives, but working within the funeral profession allows us to. Giving support and guidance to families or even just offering a listening ear.

    Leanne has an English Literature Degree from the University of Lincoln, a post-graduate Law Degree from Nottingham Trent University and a Level 7 post-graduate certificate in management from the University of Liverpool.

    In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband and dog, watching movies or reading a book.
