Roger did everything for us. We didn't have to worry about anything. He was very helpful and the funeral went without a hitch. My mother was very pleased with it all. Which she needed, under the circumstances. Thanks.

Mr Evans 11th Sep 2020

All good . Thankyou for everything

Lora White 10th Sep 2020

It was a very small congregation but because the music and singing were recorded we could feel as if there were more people with us. The celebrant was very helpful and kind both beforehand and during the ceremony. The pall bearers were respectful and made the funeral seem a celebration of her life. Thankyou.

  • 5 Pamela Northcott 23rd Jul 2020

    From the moment they came into the house they made me feel at ease and safe in their hands. They were professional, compassionate and took care of everything for me. At such a difficult time it was important to know I could rely on them to take care of all the things I didn't know I had to do and to take into account all the things we wanted to have done.

  • 5 Sarah Dickenson 20th Apr 2020

    We have to say that Roger/ Angela and the staff managed to ensure Roy’s funeral was faultless. This was no mean feat as we are in the National Lockdown. They showed compassion, dignity and caring throughout. It allowed our heartbreaking day to be bearable. Thank you. 

  • 5 Rosie Bonner 18th Apr 2020

    The service provided by L Clarke & Sons was exemplary at every stage.  During such challenging times we were advised with dignity, sympathy and respect. We were supported through the planning of the burial and funeral and although this was a very scaled down event mum’s wishes were met throughout.  We would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Karen O'Rourke 17th Apr 2020

    Professional but very personal service.  Nothing was too much trouble.  All my questions and concerns were answered.  

  • 5 Alison Morris 3rd Apr 2020

    Roger and all his staff were excellent. They were very professional, caring and understanding throughout.  At a time when ‘stay at home’ advice was beginning to emerge Roger kept us fully updated and in fact went above and beyond to ensure the service went ahead.  We are all very grateful and can’t recommend them highly enough.

  • 5 Janet Stanley 27th Mar 2020

    At such an emotional time of my husband dying  - I was grateful that my husband could go to the undertakers before the children were going to school in the area. it was such a relief to receive the patience & sensitivity shown by the team in Braunton particularlyRoger. The family felt supported and everything went smoothly. I needed prompting as I had not slept due to the stress & caring etc. The Team were so patient with me. Thank You all very much. 

  • 5 Lorraine Tanton 16th Mar 2020

    Roger and the team were so helpful, professional and supported myself and the family when we so needed a steering, gentle hand. Nothing was too much trouble for how many times I would pop in to see them because I needed to talk. I would highly recommend their service, once again thank you all.

  • 5 Linda Heywood 13th Mar 2020

  • 5 J Windsor 5th Mar 2020

    Sensitive, approachable, local...thank you so much Roger and Angela - you take the unbelievable stress and anxiety out of what should be a period of calm acceptance. Jenny, Croyde... on behalf of our dear friend.

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.
