Dawn Mellon 22nd Jul 2021

The staff at Clarkes were friendly , compassionate and very helpful. They guided me through all the steps along the way and made a difficult process as easy and as stress free as possible. They enabled me to facilitate the funeral my father wanted and the room that the service was in was bright and spacious. The attendants guiding us on the day of the funeral   gently guided us family and attendees on the day. I would not hesitate to recommend Clarkes for anyone who needs the services of a funeral director.

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. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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.
