    Chris was super.  Very kind, clear and helpful when it came time to navigating this difficult time for us.

    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.

    The service provided by Byrom’s is excellent. Chris gave calm advice and kept me informed of progress throughout making the whole thing much less stressful than to could be. I would definitely recommend Byrom’s.

    Excellent family run business who were friendly and professional throughout the whole process from start to finish. The service that was provided on the day of the funeral was faultless, the vehicles used were spotless and of a high standard, the staff who attended to our needs on the day were very professional. I would highly recommend L Clarke & Sons. Many thanks.

    I don't often leave reviews, but felt the service we received from Chris at RP Byrom was excellent at what was a very difficult time for the family. The service was professional and courteous, with Chris always being available and helpful without ever being intrusive.

    The service L Clarke & Sons give you is wonderful. They are caring & considerate & very helpful. Have used them for both my parents funerals & they were perfect. Nothing is too much trouble in your time of needing support from them.

    After losing our Dad suddenly we went to see Chris at Byrom and Son. Chris was professional, supportive and guided us through the process of arranging Dad funeral with compassion. I really don’t know what we would have done without him.

    Excellent from the start. We were recommended to RP Byrom & Son by a family friend who spoke very highly of them, and we were not disappointed. After losing our Dad relatively young, none of us had ever found ourselves in this situation where we had to plan a funeral. Chris at RP Byrom & Son was amazing from start to finish. He really took the weight off of our shoulders and made the day run as perfectly as possible to give our Dad the best send off. We had so many compliments after the service about how well run the service was and how appropriate it all was for our Dad and we could not be more grateful for Chris’ support and expertise. He was very understanding, calm and organized which meant we could fully trust him to make the day special, and he really did.  Thank you Chris, you are a star.

  • 5 S Godfrey 27th Jun 2021

    From the moment we contacted R P Byrom & Son we felt well looked after.  Chris took us through the process in a compassionate and thoughtful way.  He was always available on the phone if we ever had any questions.  We would highly recommend their services.

    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 J Cook 21st May 2021

    Dafforns made the Beravement process & funeral planning easy. They were respectful, friendly / human & very professional. It mattered to them that Dad & the family got the service that Dad would have chosen. At a difficult time it was a pleasure to have them take care of Dad & the family, infact a pleasure. We are very grateful. Four generations commented, after the service, on how it was just the right thing for Dad. Thank you from the four generations of Cooks.

    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.

    At such a bad time for us Chris and his team made things as stress free as was possible. Their attention to detail was perfect and I shall never forget seeing Chris in a top hat with his cane walking slowly leading the hearse carrying my Brother. It was moving, solemn and perfect for that moment.... Thank you to everyone at Byrom & Son.

    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.

    Everyone was so kind and patient and helped us through the process at every step. The flowers that Angela organized for us were lovely and just right for Mum. Thank you all very much.
