Our traditional arrangements


For over 20 years, Clarkson’s has been providing a personal funeral service to customers in Bath, Frome, Saltford and its surrounding areas (and in some cases even as far as Scotland, America and Italy) and every single funeral that we arrange is bespoke for each client and we always, no matter the decisions and options chosen, will do our utmost and strive to make everything as easy as possible for you.

With years of combined experience from the team at Clarkson’s, we can help and guide you through the entire arrangement from start to finish, there by your side to make sure we make the experience as smooth as possible and we will strive to get everything right for you on the day. We’ll be there for you throughout the process - as much or as little as you need us.

As a family run, independent firm, we are able to be as flexible as possible with choices and decisions for the funeral. Every service is unique as every person is unique. We’re all different people, and when it comes to being remembered at a funeral, one format doesn’t necessarily reflect the unique personality of the person being celebrated. That’s why every single one of our funerals is something we talk through with you, so that whether it be a twist on the traditional, or something with more flare, we will help create bespoke funeral services that have been perfectly tailored to suit the individual in question.

From the moment you engage our services, we’ll give our full attention to your requirements, ensuring that your loved one is remembered in the special and unique way that they deserve. Our experienced team will be with you all the way through the process to help you create that perfectly personal and bespoke celebration of life, memorial or funeral service.

The choices are vast and varied – from a personalised picture coffin (with glitter), the song choices, the collage of photos shown during the service and in the service sheets or a Bentley Hearse, motorbike hearse or even taking a meaningful route from the home to the service location. Being taken home first or into Church the night before, Religious, non-religious or Atheist. A service held in a church, a hall or unique venue such as a marquee in a woodland - whatever the choice, we will do our utmost to help you achieve the wishes of the person who had died or for your own personal pre-paid plan.

Please contact us to discuss your thoughts and options or any questions you may have.

“The pages on this website should help you consider some of these preliminary arrangements but we will talk these over with you when we meet. We will also take some of the pressure off you by making the arrangements on your behalf. We have direct links with the local Churches, Ministers, Crematoriums and Cemeteries.”
