Arranging a Funeral

The Role of Your Funeral Director

We are proud members of SAIF and NAFD,  we are expected to provide a professional service in line with Codes of Practice. To find out more, click here.

We will advise you each step of the way, discussing with you all the options and ensuring you are clear as to the costs involved. We are there to support you and guide you on what you need to do and how to go about it.

We will take care of the deceased, discuss the funeral arrangements and options available to you, deal with all the logistics and paperwork involved, and act as the ‘master of ceremonies’ on the day of the funeral.

Your Funeral Choices

We are able to help you plan the funeral of a loved one.

Registering a Death
Any death which occurs in Scotland must be registered within eight days by the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. When the death has been registered the Certificate of Registration of Death (Form 14), must be lodged with the relevant burial or cremation authority before the funeral can take place.

Funeral Costs

Once the arrangements are made our staff will ensure that all our families wishes will be carried out to their satisfaction. We will explain the various fees and charges involved.
