About our Hoole funeral home

At J. C. Clarke & Son Funeral Directors, we have been serving Chester since the 1940s. Offering nothing but the highest standard of care, we treat all our families with the same values that Mr John Croft Clarke wanted when he opened his first business. Our funeral home at Croft House in Hoole opened its doors in 1982 following the expansion of J. C. Clarke & Son Funeral Directors and was named after Mr Clarke.

Our main duty is to help and support you during this difficult time, from being your shoulder to lean on to organising a farewell fitting of your loved one’s life. We love the Chester community and you are our number one priority, which is why we have another four funeral homes in Blacon, Helsby, Tarporley and Frodsham.

We will listen to your every word so we can get to know your loved one, what they were like and some of their favourite things. Once we have a full understanding, we will work with you to organise a farewell which truly represents their life and creates a lasting memory for all the guests.

Every detail of the day can be tailored to your loved one’s life, whether they had a favourite place you would like the cortege to pass, a favourite type of flower for the tributes or just a favourite song or prayer to be played during the ceremony, no request is too big, small or unique.

We are equipped for dealing with all types of funerals from contemporary celebrations to religious and traditional goodbyes, so not to worry; we can cater to your every need.

Our team are here for you 24 hours a day; all you have to do is pick up the phone and call us. We can give you advice and answer any questions you may have.

J.C.Clarke handled my father's funeral with care, compassion and utter professionalism. They dressed my father is his clothes and brought him home the night before the funeral. Nothing was too much trouble. The funeral and burial were perfect. The order of service was printed beautifully. I would highly recommend them. All the way through the process they were informative and helpfully and made the whole experience as good as could be.

Rating 5.0
The initial meeting with Christine was very sympathetic and thorough. She talked us through the procedure and explained everything to us. We ended up with a beautiful funeral, service card, order of service, flowers, hymns and prayers. The funeral was a fitting tribute to a tragic sudden ending of my sister. The funeral was beautifully planned and executed, the cars and drivers were impressive and professional. The pallbearers did an extremely dignified job. The whole thing was tied together so well by Jane and the lovely ladies in the office

On behalf of my family I would like to thank all of the staff we dealt with before during and after our mother's funeral.
The service we were given was totally professional and delivered with sincere empathy.
Not only did the staff make our experience as comfortable as could be expected during such emotional circumstances they also eased the stress involved in making the correct choices for mums service by offering total support and guidance.
May I thank all of the team in hoole for their kindness and care.
