Patricia's manner was such a help. She was calm, patient and understanding, just what we needed at the time. She took the time to make sure we fully understood all the procedures and helped us make the right decisions for our mum. And when the day came, we were able to give her a lovely goodbye.

It was a very easy process. Your staff were so helpful and comforting in there approach to our needs.
Marianne was very easy to talk too and then when Olivia took over in was just the same.
The Funeral itself was done above and beyond all expectations so Thankyou all very much.

Rating 5.0
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.
Response from Clarabut & Plumbe Funeral Directors

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.
