Thank you so much for taking care of us. At a very difficult time, we sincerely appreciate the dignified manner and support we received. Everything was carried out to a very high standard. The professionalism was a great comfort to us as a family and we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others in their time of need.

I Am very Happy to recommend Clarks ,Both my Mum and Stepdad had pre paid funeral plans with them . This made life so much easier to the extent we also will now consider having these plans . At no time did i find the staff anything other than helpful and respectful . Even to the extent when mum passed our we dog which was so petted on mum was running around looking for her . I had read that Dogs respond to seeing the body and move on !! I must admit when i asked the receptionist if i could bring the dog in to see Mum she was somewhat taken aback but agreed ... Strange as it might seem i have a lasting memory of that event ... Best to stick with Family Firms .... Thanks to all at Clarks

Nothing was too much trouble & everything went so smoothly. We all very much appreciated the route taken to Noel’s final resting place passing his bookies, favourite watering hole & the street he was born & lived on all of his life. Everything was done with great professionalism.

  • 5 Helen Kelly 20th Apr 2021

    The staff at Clarke’s were considerate and professional. From the removal from her home, through her days at Clarke’s and then the service and committal, I don’t think anyone could have asked for a more attentive and caring service. 

  • 5 Ian Fisher 19th Apr 2021

    Extremely good at what they do. Friendly, attentive, and expert.

  • 5 Gareth Johnston 17th Apr 2021

    I've used Clarke's for the funerals of both my parents. On both occasions they provided very sensitive, dignified and professional service where what was agreed was delivered reliably and without fuss. They worked flexibly to accommodate our wishes and made things straightforward for us at a difficult time, in particular co-ordinating in the background with all the various people involved.

  • 5 Lee Dineley 16th Apr 2021

    S Clarke & Son provided a first class service and were a great support to our family during this difficult time . 

  • 5 Raymond McKeown 15th Apr 2021

    From the initial phone call to S.clarke + son, through the arrangements pertaining to  the funeral of my wife I was completely satisfied with the care and attention given by the various members of staff involved. They undertook all the actions required to contact the minister, the church involved and the gravedigger and on the day of the funeral the necessary actions to complete the burial. A very professional service.

  • 5 Colin Scott 12th Apr 2021

  • 5 Robert Glover 12th Apr 2021

    S. Clark & Son looked after my father-in-law's funeral and we simply couldn't fault them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

What are disbursements?

How can I get help with funeral costs?
