L Clarke and Son's have helped us with the Funerals of both my parents now and I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Dignified and considerate, they are consummate professionals 

J Thompson 13th Nov 2021

My mother had planned her funeral extensively before her death, but left some items for us to plan as her children. Roger was sensitive and highly supportive of us as a family, guiding us through the process. He was patient and empathetic, constantly checking on our family through difficult circumstances. His team were equally considerate to our feelings but remained professional at all times. Our family are extremely grateful for their professionalism and sensitivity, ensuring they were prepared for every eventuality.

    Roger,Chris, Angela and staff have been wonderful in the way they have helped us through this very difficult time.  We would like to thank them all for taking care of Paul prior to the funeral, and for their professionalism and guidance on the day. Beverly & family.

  • 5 M Ward 10th Sep 2021

    I only made contact with Clarke and son on the morning of my fathers passing. They were excellent from the word go. They picked dad up from home a few hours after he passed which gave us all time to say a good bye. We played music as they respectfully took him and stepped back and gave us all the time we needed. They talked through everything very simply. They facilitated the grandsons carrying the coffin. They facilitated my son picking up the ashes the next day as one of his wishes. Nothing has been to much trouble. Wouldn’t hesitate to use this friendly family firm at a time when you need all the support you can get. Thank you from the Ward family. 

  • 5 Mrs Spencer 10th Sep 2021

  • 5 P Ginnings 22nd Jun 2021

    We felt very supported by Roger and his team as we arranged the cremation for my mother. He helped steer us through an unfamiliar process during these unusual times.

  • 5 N Slee 14th May 2021

    As someone who had never had to plan and arrange a funeral before, I found the team extremely supportive throughout.  I had most dealings with Angela, who guided me through the whole process with skill and care, and nothing ever seemed too much trouble for her.  She really helped to take away a great deal of the stress and anxiety of the situation.   At the funeral itself, Roger and the other bearers were models of discreet and pastoral presence, and their respectful demeanour enhanced the funeral service.  I cannot speak too highly of the service I and my family have received.  The flexibility of different options also means that their services are suitable for different budgets.  I would recommend L Clarke & Sons without hesitation.  

  • 5 D Hatton 27th Apr 2021

    From the outset we found the service of Roger from LClarke and sons highly commendable  and sympathetic in every way.They handled my wife with extreme care and dignity on taking her from our home,and I trust that she received the same treatment when taken to their chapel of rest.The commits at Barnstaple crematorium was very dignified and the eulogy was very poignantly spoken by Amandajane.Wewould not hesitate to recommend the services of L.Clarke and sons.

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.
