From the moment you walk through the door at J C Clarke and Son you know you are in the best hands possible. Kim was fantastic she made a very difficult time that little bit easier and less stressful. She always kept us in the know with anything before she approved it. All the team we came across were fantastic. All the gentlemen on the day of my Dads funeral were fantastic and respectful. I would highly reccommend J C Clarke and Son to anyone. We couldn't be more happier with the service we recieved. Thank you.

From the moment I made the first phone call I knew I was dealing with a compassionate and caring set of professionals. Everything I needed to know was explained in clear terms, this is really helpful as our heads are in turmoil at this sensitive time. It was also good to know that I could call them at any time if I had any questions about the arrangements.
The later face to face meeting was a good idea as things were explained and the brochures were easier to go through together. The day before the funeral I was contacted to ensure I was happy with timings and I understood the arrangements. The day itself ran like clockwork and we were treated with respect and care all through the day.
Response from J. C. Clarke & Son Funeral Directors

An excellent service throughout. The staff at J.C. Clarke & Son of Chester could not have been more helpful. At this difficult time they went above and beyond to ensure that my father had a lovely send off. He looked so peaceful and the actual service gave our family an opportunity to say our final goodbyes in a dignified way. Thank you for your ongoing support as well.

After loosing my Aunty J C Clarke we’re the chosen undertakers. They were very helpful from the beginning arrangements to the end of the funeral. Even under these difficult circumstances of covid, nothing was to much trouble, Lisa was the lady I dealt with most, she talked me through every step. My Aunty’s funeral was dignified and very respectful. Thank you all at Clark’s. I would definitely recommend them when these difficult times arrive.

My Dad fell asleep on the 12th Dec, leaving me devastated. I went to Blacon branch and met with Carl. I was very specific with what I wanted for Dad, a horse and carriage with an Elvis coffin. The funeral was booked for new years eve, the near impossible requests I put in was achieved by Carl and the whole team. They went above and beyond my expectations with the support they provided myself and my family even down to ordering the flowers. The Dignity and respect they treated Dad with was heart melting he looked beautiful and peaceful wearing his wings pin on his beautiful gown the team even knocked on the door before they entered Dads room. They truly are the champions of dignity and respect and they will never know how much this meant to me.

My family have used Dignity Funeral plans on three occasions.
At the difficult time of losing a family member haveing prepared by taking out a plan certainly eases the situation.
You are able to prepare at a time when you are not shocked or grieving. To consider the best for your loved one.
Personally I found peace at a difficult time knowing things were in place.
Things run smoothly, no detail overlooked ,all aspects of the event considered.
The staff were all very professional, warm, helpful, and discreet with their support.
