About Us

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 three funeral homes in Blacon, Helsby 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.

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.

Call us today on 01244 318411 to talk through your personal requirements.
