    Dealing with the death of my Sister Vanessa Grant was hard enough but having to organise the funeral too was a very difficult task for myself and my family but we managed to give her the send off she deserved with the caring and respectful support we recieved from Clarabut and Plumbe especially from Olivia Goodwin who dealt with our family personally. I will be forever greatful for all the effort that went into making it as smooth running as it was. I just want to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    And will visit soon to show my appreciation with a box of chocolates.
    Thank you again.

    The family were very happy with the service we received. Everybody was very professional, yet friendly and kind. Pat at the office was efficient and helpful, keeping us informed at every step. On the day of the funeral, the staff were kind and supportive. We are very grateful. They made a difficult time much easier.

    Both Amanda and Simon at Clarabut & Plumbe were excellent in the friendly and professional service they provided. Amanda fully explained the funeral plan beforehand and then planned all the arrangements to ensure that everything was in place and ran smoothly on the day, despite the short timescales.
    Simon was with us on the day of the funeral and put us all at ease and looked after us, explaining all the time, what would be happening and what we needed to do. He was also really kind to myself and my daughter when we came into the branch to spend some time in the chapel of rest with my deceased husband/her dad and nothing was too much trouble. Both myself and my two daughters felt that the whole family were treated with lots of kindness, dignity and respect and Simon and Amanda made such a hard couple of weeks seem so much easier to endure. Thank you both - we can't praise you enough.
