Aberdeen Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Very good and caring and thoughtful and could take as long as I wanted when I was going in to see my wife. Time was no object for them. They are well organised when it comes to the funeral day. Also they try there utmost to keep costs down to a minimum. And very friendly people couldn’t do enough for you very good at keeping you up to date as to what’s happening. If I was ever in that situation again I would use them 100%
