S Clarke and Son Funeral Directors is a fourth generation family business with funeral churches in Newtownards and Bangor. The business was founded in 1918 by Samuel Clarke, a young entrepreneur who had then just completed an apprenticeship with a local funeral undertaker and building contractor. Samuel was joined by his wife, Minnie in 1925 and son, John in 1940, and thanks to the family’s hard work and the support of local families, the business quickly grew and expanded.

Today, more than 100 years since its establishment, Samuel’s grandson Jim and his wife Gillian along with great-grandson, Johnathan head up the family business. Together with a team of experienced funeral professionals, they strive to uphold the high standards set by Samuel Clarke all those years ago.

S Clarke and Son Funeral Directors is pleased to offer a complete range of funeral services, including a selection of pre-paid funeral plans supported by Ecclesiastical Planning Services.


Choosing your funeral plan – important information

You can buy a plan for yourself or on behalf of someone else. The funeral plans offered are designed to cover the funeral director's own costs. As long as they carry out the funeral and the requirements don't change, neither you nor your family will be asked to pay a penny more for these costs, regardless of when the plan is needed or what happens to costs in the meantime.

The plans can also include a contribution towards any third party costs (also known as disbursements), such as burial or cremation costs. Please refer to the Key Features Document and Terms and Conditions for more information.
