She has also managed many charity fundraising relationships, working with organisations that included a children’s hospice and NCH, the National Children’s Home. With a recent distinction in her One Education ‘Funeral Arranger Training Course’, Linda has found that her work in the funeral industry makes use of many of her previous skills as well as her personal skills as a good listener and organiser.

    I cannot recommend Varley and varley enough. They went above and beyond for my family, they gave my mum the most special, peaceful and beautiful funeral possible. My mum was my world and I trusted them completely with looking after her with the care and respect she deserved. Their staff are amazing, so caring and always there to talk to any time of the day. I will be forever grateful to them for making the whole process smooth, more bearable and and exactly how we wanted it. 

  • 5 Shona Crooks 5th Apr 2021

    If I could give Varley and Varley more than 5 stars I would. The service Clayton, Sam and the team provided was simply outstanding and I can't recommend them enough. The compassion, kindness and empathy they've shown to me and my family will never be forgotten. They went above and beyond to make sure my Dad had the perfect send off. So Varley and Varley, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you! From Shona & Family 

  • 5 Matt Flint 18th Mar 2021

    Really well put together arrangements. Seamless from start to finish, very respectful and a fitting farewell.

  • 5 Colin Evans 16th Mar 2021

    Very well organised funeral service, with a personal touch. Clayton the director kept us informed from the day we contacted him he gave us options and provided all the information we required. I have the utmost respect for Clayton and his staff who turned a very sad event into a well presented funeral for my lovely wife.

  • 5 Dave Hewitt 16th Mar 2021

    Clayton, Em & Sam were amazing from the beginning, really easy to deal with , very reasonably priced. On the day Clayton & his colleagues were impeccably dressed & delivered my Aunt with Honor & respect. Thank you

  • 5 Gemma Eaton 15th Mar 2021

    I was literally blown away by the support and kindness of not just the managers but of the owner and his wife. Nothing was too much trouble and when there was lack of communication at the church, not down to Mr Varley but the priest, he kept me calm and reassured so my brother was able to have the dignified send off he deserved. I can not recommend him enough and while I hope we don't need the service for s long time. I wouldn't consider any other funeral directors. Wishing to thank Clayton, Emma and Samantha for their support. @,---, ---. Gemma x

  • 5 Richard Lee 15th Mar 2021

    Amazing care and kindness, at the most difficult time.

  • 5 Linda Oliphant 15th Mar 2021

    I first went to a more well known funeral directors but soon discovered they did it their way, not your way. So I went to talk to Clayton at Varley and Varley. It didn't take long for me to change my mind. My daughter and I are 1000% glad we went this this company. Everything we wanted, and we wanted the best for my wonderful husband they did for us, even drove his beloved Merc to lead the procession. Clayton asked me what I wanted and said he would do everything and for me to just look after myself. Nothing was too much trouble as he is a compassionate man who understands grief. There is no falseness about him and the girls who work there are really helpful and lovely. His wife videoed the whole funeral which was conducted by a special lady Clayton also provided. Everyone said it was the best it could have possibly have been. We done my Ron proud that day. Thank you so much Clayton and your team Linda Oilphant

    Excellent service will be recommending to family and friends. 

  • 5 Pearl and Dave c/o Primrose Hall 27th Dec 2020

    I am so glad my family was directed to Clayton and Linda, who felt like friends the first minute I spoke with them, and indeed have become so. Whereas other funeral directors felt cold and business-like, Clayton radiated compassion, love, professionalism and respect borne from his lifetime in a family funeral business. Ths small touches he made during a time with so many restrictions on our movements gave dignity, simplicity and the service was carried out impeccably. I cannot thank him and his team enough for all their loving support and would direct you first and foremost to their peaceful offices in Beckenham. Family of Terence G Hall

  • 5 Jordan Wilson 22nd Dec 2020

  • 5 Chris Kelly 9th Dec 2020

    Professional service.

  • 5 Gemma Stacey 25th Nov 2020

    There are simply not enough words to describe Varley & Varley. The team are the most compassionate, thoughtful and hard working throughout the whole entire process. What could have potentially of been the hardest moments of my life, and creating a unique send off for my dad. With thanks to Clayton and the team, my dad got his very last wish, a bespoke bright orange coffin. My family will be forever thankful for Varley & Varley. 

  • 5 Michele Salter 28th Oct 2020

    I was fortunate to have received a recommendation for Varley & Varley. Clayton Varley was so warm and empathetic, we felt immediately in good hands. Clayton made lots of helpful suggestions that saved us money, he found the perfect celebrant (a catholic priest) to conduct the service at the crematorium and everything on the day went without a hitch. I have recommended V&V to others as I think his obvious humanity is hard to beat at such a difficult time. 

  • 5 Nikki Slater 27th Oct 2020

    A great service as was a very difficult situation but clayton handled everything and made it a lot easier and as stress free as it could be I will be forever grateful.

  • 5 Amanda Peck 26th Oct 2020

    A truly bespoke personalised service. Our needs and wishes were met throughout.  Attention to detail and the care and attention were first class.  A lovely family feel where no request was too big. 

  • 5 George Kyriakides 22nd Oct 2020

    When we got in touch with Varley and Varley with the sad news the lose of our father. From that moment they welcome us into their office and explained in great details all the different options of service was available and any thing we wanted to add that wasn't offered, they were happy to to provide it. Nothing was too much to ask just as long it ease the our sadness. I can honestly say that Varley and Varley are a very professional family run funeral directors, they were warm, friendly and was always there for us even out of hours. I just like to say to Clayton and all his staff thank you so much for a wonderful service you gave for our father.
