Benedict Funeral Directors are ideally suited to provide undertaker services for residents of the Clifton area.
We are here to help and advise
Being a family run Undertakers brings certain advantages with it, namely you are assured of our personal touch; total respect, honesty and compassion. Part of that respect is to let you know your options; funerals are one off events and they can be relatively simple or very extravagant.
Our promise to you is one of honesty. We will tell you the truth about what your options are. Be assured no matter what you choose, be it simple or extravagant, our respect to you and your loved one will not change, it’s what makes us who we are.
Clifton Funeral Options
Our funeral home, and both our chapels of rest, are in Arlesey, which is very close to Clifton. Taking the A507, Clifton is about 10 minutes car drive away from Benedict Funeral Directors.
Clifton is usually served by one of three Crematoriums:
- Stevenage Crematorium, or to give it it’s correct name Harwood Park Crematorium, which is located just outside Stevenage on the Watton Road and rests in its own beautifully landscaped gardens.
- The second crematorium is to be found in Luton; Vale Cemetery & Crematorium. The address is Vale Cemetery & Crematorium, The Vale, Butterfield Green Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, LU2 8DD. Whilst Luton Crematorium is older than the Stevenage Crematorium, it is beautifully maintained and presented.
- The third crematorium is Bedford Crematorium, located at 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL, for families requiring a slightly larger facility than that offer at Stevenage and Luton; (for funerals where a very large amount of people are expected to attend).
Of course cremation is not the only option; there are different cemeteries available for burial, (as opposed to being cremated). Benedict funeral Directors are more than happy to discuss this with you. Central Beds Council which is the District Authority covering Clifton has several cemeteries via it’s town councils, Clifton can also be served by Bedford Cemetery Complex, 104 Norse Road, Bedford, MK41 0RL.
Clifton has a beautiful historical church called All Saints Church. Funeral services can be arranged by Benedict Funeral Directors at All Saints Anglican Church (subject to permission of the priest in Charge). All Saints church in Clifton and All Saints church in Southill are a joint Benefice. The current Priest in charge is Reverend Anne Hindle. Her address is The Rectory, Rectory Close, Clifton, Shefford, Beds, SG17 5EL.
We offer a 24 hour service 7 days a week
