Established in 1784, JH Clark and Son offer over 200 years' worth of heritage and experience as personalised funeral directors.

The History of JH Clark and Sons

JH Clark and sons was established in Rawmarsh, Rotherham in 1784. Since that time the business has passed from father to son, spanning nine generations.

Originally the business was founded by Joshua H Clark; a joiner, carpenter and wheelwright who handmade coffins. The natural progression was to provide the complete funeral service.

Over the years the business gradually expanded buying some of the earliest motorised vehicles in the Rotherham area, in the early part of the 20th century. JH Clark & Sons now serves all areas of Rotherham which led us to acquire a second premises in Thurcroft, Rotherham in 2000.

JH Clark and sons is still owned and managed by the Clark family from the original stone built premises from which the business was founded and is thought to be one of the oldest surviving independent funeral directors in the UK.
