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.

My heartfelt thanks go to Craig and the team who took care of my Dad earlier this month. From start to finish it was perfect. Their care and professionalism was spot on.

The service we have received from Levertons has been empathetic, understanding and non judgemental. We dealt with Carmel and she was efficient, and thoughtful, making a difficult time, easier to manage. My uncle died alone, having lived a solitary life. As a family we had no idea of his wishes, but knew that a large busy funeral would not have fitted in with who he was. We opted for a quite non attended cremation, and it was arranged seamlessly, and efficiently, helping the family that remained, to have peace that he had some dignity at the time of death. Due to the distance, it was all managed online and over the phone, which meant easy communications to all the family. We have used Levertons for all family in London and would recommend then time and time over. Thank you from us

After what has been a testing couple of months, Leverton handled the funeral of my late Brother Stefan with compassion and dignity, and arranged for his ashes to be scattered at Golders Green Crematorium in the same place as his parents. I would like to thank them for their patience and kindness throughout this difficult time.

Debbie and all of Levertons looked after both my mum five years ago and my uncle last month they were -without doubt amazing caring and professional. I can't thank them enough.

Kathryn was kind, patient and always flexible with arrangements. It's a compliment to say she was also entirely professional: when you're organising a funeral you're not usually at your most efficient, so it's essential to have someone who is. My thanks to her and her team.

Review by Roger H left on 13 May 2024


I cannot recommend Levertons highly enough. Craig Parker was so helpful, and made all the arrangements for my mother's funeral, and his colleague Lorna Walkden ensured that everything went smoothly on the day. It mean that I could focus on the event, without worrying about the arrangements. A source of great comfort and reassurance at a very difficult time.

Review by Lorna H left on 13 May 2024


Highly recommended, thought Levertons were professional and dignified throughout the whole process of the funeral arrangements. My particular thanks goes to Lorna for her professionalism through our experience in dealing with Levertons
