Funeral Services we provide

The services we have provided in the past are many and varied. We cater for all denominations, and non religious funerals. We have a close working relationship with all the local churches and chapels and can engage the services of a Humanist or secular officiant, if desired.


For smaller services we have our own service room or for larger services local churches, halls or hotels can be used. Our experience is vast. We have arranged services for the military, the world of sport and entertainment. We have organised the repatriation of people who live abroad and died in Scotland. We have also arranged the return of people to the UK who have died abroad. This is all part of our duties as Funeral Directors. We have taken funerals across the length and breadth of the country and have many contacts with other independent Funeral Directors throughout the N.A.F.D. network.


We are here to put into place a funeral service appropriate to the individual. We have arranged woodland burials with wicker coffins; we have arranged funerals with the local Chinese community and carried out Hindu and Sikh funerals. We have been asked to provide a horse drawn hearse, which is always a magnificent sight.


We have had requests for choirs, soloists, pipers and jazz bands. Bright red or pink coffins have been used, cardboard coffins on which everyone wrote a personal message, or on occasion, a funeral which by request, no-one attended, apart from ourselves and the grave diggers.


We have yet to be involved in a burial at sea, or serve a request for an interment in someone's back garden. (It would need to be quite a big back garden).


Having said all of that, the vast majority of our work is for local people, who take comfort in our local knowledge and traditions. We strive to be part of that tradition and with dedication to service, hope to be part of its evolution in the future.
