Clive joined his family working for Levertons in 1959. He worked alongside brother Keith, father Ivor and uncle Chris Leverton and the rest of the team until he left to work for himself in the building profession in 1969. Re-joining in 1975, the experience he had gained and brought to the firm proved very useful in developing and growing the firm.
Clive then worked his way up with brother Keith to become Director and subsequently Chairman of the company with daughter Pippa and Hannah and nephew Andrew also joining later. Always learning and wanting to bring high standards to the profession, he has a Diploma in Funeral Directing and was a founder member of SAIF (Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors) which has now reached over 1,000 members. Over the years Clive has made and is well known for many contributions to the firm and profession, most notably pioneering the first all-electric hearse made in the UK. He is also Trustee and Chairman of the St Pancras Welfare Trust which supports those most in need in the old metropolitan borough of St Pancras, Camden. He officially retired in 2020 aged 77 but still works as a consultant behind the scenes to support where needed.
Clive takes great satisfaction in lifting the load of bereavement by dealing with all the practicalities following a death to allow families to mourn without distraction.
He spends his spare time with family or at the allotment and is proud that Leverton’s co- sponsor Haringey Rugby Football Club including the Ladies Teams.

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

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!
