About Us

We are Clarabut & Plumbe Funeral Directors, and we have served the community of Bedford since 1895. Our funeral home in Putnoe was established in 2017 to better serve families in Goldington, Brickhill, Dearne Walk and beyond.

We treat every family in our care with the same level of kindness and compassion that we would want to be treated with. We will work closely with you to get to know you and how you want your loved one’s funeral to be. We will do everything we can to arrange the service just how you want it.

Our funeral home has disabled access and facilities and a private chapel of rest which you can visit at any time, on request, should you wish to spend time with your loved one before the day of the funeral.

We understand how difficult it can be to arrange a funeral, so we want you to know that we are here to advise and support you. You can call us anytime of the day.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

    From first contact to the funeral itself, Clarabut & Plumbe were exemplary. The staff at the Bedford office were wonderfully helpful. She offered advice and guidance when it was needed and as a result a particularly stressful time was made all the easier. She also recommended a celebrant who turned out to be a perfect fit for us and I cannot thank her enough for her support. On the day itself the team of pallbarers were professional and fantastically supportive. I don't think the day could have gone any better and I know my mum would have been impressed and pleased with the service.

    We were treated in a friendly and caring way and assisted through the whole process. All the staff were highly professional and the organisation and support from Marianne made a difficult time very easy for the family. We felt confident in leaving arrangements to Clarabut and Plumbe and would use them again in the future.
