Sue, Sarah and the team from the Sale Moor brance were absolutely exemplary in their organisation and support for me and my family during the organisation of my sisters funeral. They helped in every way to deliver the perfect send off for Nicola, co-ordinating and managing every last detail with the minimum of fuss and maximum professionalism. Thank you and well done.

Sue and the team at Ian Clarke are brilliant, they are caring, compassionate and supportive.
We arranged our fifth family funeral when my wife Helen passed away recently, I took some comfort knowing she would be well cared for in their charge.
All the arrangements we required were followed, nothing was too much trouble, they even went the extra to wear purple ties which my wife wanted everyone to do.
I cannot thank them enough for looking after us during a very hard time for myself and family.

In every interaction, by phone or in person, each member of the staff always engaged
in a most warm and genuinely sympathetic manner...enquiring about my wellbeing, and offering to be of assistance, where feasible...ready to provide answers to my queries, then, or asap...very helpful in many respects. I especially appreciated the willingness to accept, respect and encourage the preference of my daughters and I to develop our own unique Order of Service, resulting in a pleasing and memorable "Send Off" of our beloved Cynthia. Thank you, much. We will certainly, happily recommend Ian Clarke Funeral Directors at such time such service is required.

We used the Sale Moor branch and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They stopped outside my husbands local darts team pub, did the local newspaper message, and found us a humanist for the service. They were very knowledgeable and helped with lots of things, I hadn't even thought about. Many thanks to them, the day went very smoothly even in this difficult time.

We recently had the need to plan a funeral and used Ian Clarkes Funeral Directors. We would recommend them to anyone else in the same situation.
They were there for us every step of the way, explaining what would happen and what we needed to decide.
Throughout all of this, they were compassionate friendly and approachable and nothing was to much trouble.
We worked with them to ensure that all of the details were perfect including some last-minute changes. We were able to give our loved one a send-off that was personal to us.
Arranging a funeral is a difficult and emotional process but they were able to make it as easy as possible and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Response from Ian Clarke Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

Many thanks to Sue and Yvonne for their compassionate but extremely professional help with the arrangements for my mother's funeral.They made the entire process very easy and gave advice where necesssary that helped make it a celebration of mum's life rather than a sombre event.Would certainly recommend their services to others.

We have sadly had to use Ian Clarke’s services twice in less than 3 years - losing both of our parents suddenly in their 50s. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who truly do go above and beyond, and are extremely special people. They made an extremely painful time a little more bearable. The funeral itself ran so smoothly - Sue is wonderful at her job and we truly cannot thank her enough.
Response from Ian Clarke Funeral Directors
I am glad you chose Ian Clarke Funeral Directors to take care of your parents. It makes a difficult time seem a little easier and I am pleased we were able to provide you with the support and guidance needed on both occasions.

From the moment Staff at Ian Clarke Funeral Directors took over arrangements for my mothers funeral, my mind was at ease.
The professionalism and caring,compassionate manner, we all as a family experienced was unbelievable.
To know that mum was in such hands was just priceless.
Every special request I wanted was dealt with immediately.
Any time I called I was treated so kindly and considerately.
On the day itself, I felt so much calmer than I thought I would, because I knew everything would go smoothly.
To be invited to the Remembrance Service was very special. I was able to collect mum's ashes at the service and bring her home with me.
A most difficult and sad time was made so much easier and has certainly helped with the grieving process. Thank You.

Sue, Yvonne and Sarah's advice and hard work led to a lovely farewell service for my father-in-law. It was a perfect send off and he would have thoroughly approved.


Thanks again, especially to Sue, for guiding us through a very emotional time.
