Varley & Varley is an independent family run funeral directors based in Beckenham, but we will provide services for your loved ones across South and East London, Kent and beyond.

Founded in 2014, Clayton Varley has over 20 years of experience in the funeral industry and is driven to apply the best and most compassionate standards he can to deliver a good funeral.

“Empathy and listening help us anticipate the needs of the family,” he said. “Even if we haven’t talked about the arrangements, just by listening to stories, I know how to make it more about a loved one than just a funeral.”

Much of the company’s business comes from families who come back to us as they know we can take so much pressure from their grief by how smoothly we organise funerals.

While we have an office on Bromley Road in Beckenham, Clayton can meet you there or in your home, where he guides you through the arrangements.

We will liaise on your behalf with any necessary authorities, such as hospitals and coroners, if necessary to gain access to your loved one. We will then coordinate with any ministers or clergy who you would like to officiate at a final service, and then make arrangements with a cemetery or a crematorium to make sure that your loved one receives the funeral service that you want.

With a portfolio of memorial consultants, Clayton can guide you through selecting a coffin from Varley & Varley’s curated selection or advise on something more personal. Also, when it comes to memorials, including headstones or cremation urns, he will be there to guide you.

Varley & Varley has a competitive range of funeral packages and inform you of the accruing costs as the arrangements progress. Details of our most popular packages are available on request. Some people opt for a simple Direct Cremation, when we convey your loved one from his or her place of passing to the crematorium. We collect the cremated remains and return them to you for scattering or commemoration.

Varley & Varley will be there for you when you need us most.
