Funeral directors and transport solutions in Silsden and surrounding areas
Jackson's of Silsden is a family business, founded by Thomas Jackson in 1904.
It is now owned and operated by the third and fourth generations of his family. From the outset, the company, then known as Jackson's Motor Services, supplied horse-drawn vehicles for use as light haulage, taxis or for weddings and funerals.
Shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, the company fleet was motorised for the first time, increasing the area it covered. Throughout the '60s and '70s the company expanded, acquiring mini coaches and entering the car and van hire market. We eventually owned offices in Silsden, Skipton, Keighley, Harrogate, Ripon and York, with over 300 cars and vans in our fleet.
In 1988, following the sale of the car hire side of the business, the company was reformed and attention redirected back to core operations. Expansion to the mini coach side of the business and the purchase of two local funeral directors has allowed us to continue to provide a mix of traditional family values, modern efficiency and quality services to all our customers.
