Our family caring for your family

Barnet’s oldest established Funeral Directors, J.A. Clark & Son was founded by John Anthony Clark in 1887. Originally a small concern operating from the rear of John Clark’s draper’s and millinery department store, the business quickly grew until the present office in Wood Street, Barnet was established.

In 1983, after 26 years of loyal service, the business was passed on to Charles Denny, the father of the current Managing Director. Today, the company is managed by Susan Denny, alongside her sons Terry and Charles.

“Having joined the company in 1985, I learned every aspect of the industry under the watchful eye of my father, Charles Denny. I believe he taught me well and, together with my family, I have continued his passion and commitment to providing a comprehensive, personal funeral service to families in their time of need.

My eldest son, Terry, has worked with me since 1997 and my youngest son, Charles, since early 2021. Together, we make a strong team. We’re here to listen, to understand your specific needs and circumstances and to guide you through every stage of the funeral process. We treat each funeral individually and make every effort to provide you and your family with a service to reflect your loved one’s life.”

    • You can be proud of Charlie to know that everything ran smoothly for Ray’s funeral service and Lauren and I were very pleased with the result. Thank you also for arranging the most beautiful floral arrangements. I’m drying the foliage as it dies and arranging it as an Autumn display.
    • Simply a quick note to thank you both. The family were delighted with every aspect of the funeral – even how you all managed to avoid the heavy rain that we were enduring here! So as I say, thank you – your assistance is greatly appreciated.
    • I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank you & all your team for the way you handled Rosemary’s funeral last week. It made the day that little bit more manageable.
