Levertons Since 1789
Leverton and Sons has been a family owned company of funeral directors based within the St Pancras area of London since 1789. Leases dating from 1789 show John Leverton of Henry Street buying land and selling the houses he built on them. At this time, funeral work was conducted by local carpenters “undertaking” to make the coffins and transport the body.

The relatively sudden death of my best friend who was 48 years old was one of the hardest things to bear. Levingtons made arranging his funeral so easy, the staff felt like friend who listened and understood with no pressures I’d like to thank pippa and Michael for bringing comfort at such an awlful time. Keep up the good work and never change

I was very impressed from first to last with the way in which Kathryn at Leverton handled the arrangements. Very sensitive and professional indeed.

Levertons dealt with the funeral of our dear aunt with respect and tenderness. Kathryn at the Hampstead branch was very helpful and personable and explained the process and was considerate of our wishes. She communicated regularly and was there on the day to assist and reassure.

I had a very positive experience with Leverton in Belsize Park. Kathryn made the whole experience of organising my husband’s funeral very easy, and in assisting me to obtain the desired ceremony. The result was faultlessly beautiful.

Dear Kathryn, Thank you for your invaluable care and support during the dark days following Richard’s passing. You were a great comfort to us as a family and your ability to coordinate all the various aspects involved was nothing short of a miracle. The funeral, although traumatic, went smoothly. We received nothing but wonderful comments from all involved. We send you very best wishes.

The service that Levertons (Golders Green) provided, cannot be faulted. From beginning to end and through every aspect of the arrangements, they were: professional, supportive, kind and extremely patient. I would recommend this company very highly

Review by Catherine D left on 23 Oct 2023


Kathryn was brilliant - she was thorough, efficient, friendly - everything from preparation to the actual day went very well. It was so nice that this old, established firm, continued to serve their customers with a personal touch. Can't recommend more. Thank you Kathryn!
