Clark & Battoo Funeral Directors and Embalmers
Battoo's funeral home was established in the mid 1940's by Ethelbert 'Meg' Battoo and Edward 'Del' Battoo at the north eastern corner of Edward Street and Tragarete Road, Port Of Spain. Across on the south-western corner of the same location was situated 'J. Haynes Clark Funeral Home, which began operations in the 1880's. Battoo merged with Haynes Clark in the early 1950's thus forming Clark and Battoo Limited which became formally incorporated in Port Of Spain on May 12, 1953.
'Battoo Brothers' already had its transport haulage, taxi & limousine services with the agency for the luxurious Mercedes Benz vehicles before buying out J. Haynes Clark. One condition of the sale was that we maintain the name 'Clark'. 'Meg' Battoo sent his nephews and great nephews abroad to train as funeral directors and embalmers.
