Clive Leverton

Staff Details

Clive Leverton

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.

I never had to arrange a funeral but with your help from registering Tony with you before he was repatriated through the whole process your expertise and kindness and patience were invaluable . The funeral went without a hitch you carried it out with dignity and respect you and your staff have shown why Levertons is and will always be a service that my family have always used and will continue to use and recommending Andrew was amazing he truly led one of the best services I have seen in a while and such a fitting tribute to Tony . So pass on my thanks to Andrew to your team and you for helping me and my family through such a tough and sad time in our lives .

From first contact, through to the service and after, I cannot fault the support we had from Levertons. At a very difficult and challenging time, we always felt we were in very safe hands. Thank you

From making the phone call to book funeral services to the very end of the process we were treated with kindness, respect and every request we made was met with ease. On the day all of the staff involved were very courteous and everything ran very smoothly, which make such a had experience much easier to bare.

We went to Leverton’s after we had visited another funeral directors. From the moment we walked in and Deborah Rush, the funeral directors at Fortis Green, greeted us we felt confident in her management of my Mother’s funeral. The process was seamless and Deborah advised and enabled us in planning and undertaking a very personal funeral.

Our mother was treated respectfully and all our requests were carried out efficiently. Deborah was helpful and made sure the funeral ran smoothly down to the last details. Thank you.
