We couldn’t have asked for any more from the staff at S Clarke and Son. The support, professionalism, compassion  and understanding shown to us from the first contact right through the most difficult time of our lives has been greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. 

Ingrid Rankin 30th Jun 2021

S Clarke & Son provided an exemplary professional service during the whole process; this included repatriation, and they worked hand in glove with our other undertakers based in England. Throughout, we experienced a welcome personal touch and received excellent communication from all the staff involved.

Joan Thompson 28th Jun 2021

From the removal of body from the house to the funeral itself everything was carried out in a totally dignified manner, and the staff were more than helpful at every step.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
