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 do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.

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.

A very difficult time for our family was made so much easier. I felt that my mother had a dignified funeral. I am very grateful to Michelle and team who made sure that everything went smoothly. You never think about funeral directors but in our time of need they were there. I am very grateful to them and would thoroughly recommend them.

Elizabeth Shepherd 1 day ago

From start to finish we were treated with dignity and support. As a family it was so special to have that peace of mind that all would be taken care of by the funeral team. The help and advice and follow up calls from them was exceptional.

This was a slightly tricky funeral for the family, but Wm Gilchrist Funeralcare, Aberdeen took charge and seamlessly delivered a fitting farewell for us. I would especially like to mention the steadying presence during the planning stage of Steven McNally who made sure everything happened exactly as planned. Thank you so much. Very happy to recommend!
