Neil and everyone at George Scott Funeral Services provided exemplary care and service on all aspects of the planning as well as the actual day of our Father's funeral. Our family are beyond grateful to Neil for helping us give Dad such a wonderful service to celebrate his life.

  • 5 Savas Ersahin 26th Mar 2021

    Neil and George Scott really were amazing! Neil was so polite and helpful from the moment we started speaking! Having spoken with several funeral directors prior this was not always the case! The funeral was the perfect send off and all went as planned! Thank you so much for making such a difficult time in our families lives that much easier to cope with! The Ersahin Family! All the best

  • 5 Edward Jeans 5th Mar 2021

    This is the 3rd funeral Neil and his team have delivered for me in the last 18 months. Whilst that is not good news, I could not have wished for a more helpful and considerate company to carry out the funerals. Needless to say I would not hesitate to recommend their services

  • 5 Carol Shuck 5th Mar 2021

    Sadly this has been the third time I’ve used George Scott.  My husband died recently and as previously their approachable, friendly and caring attitude made a difficult time easier to cope with.

  • 5 Jayne Goodall 26th Feb 2021

    Neil was fantastic from start to finish, he made a very difficult time easy to navigate and the service was exactly what we wanted many thanks 

  • 5 James Breen 25th Feb 2021

    Very supportive throughout. Everything was clearly explained and nothing was too much trouble.

  • 5 Gemma Stacey 21st Feb 2021

    Neil, Martin and all the staff at George Scott were amazing at a terribly emotional and distressing time. Their attention to detail and the information provided was second to none, and they really helped take alot of the stress away. Always at the end of the phone or email, I really felt supported at this time of grief. I would most certainly recommend this friendly and caring funeral directors.

  • 5 Tina Rich 28th Jan 2021

    George Scott took my breath away for there level customer service . Its role or job where one has to care for family and deceased. The care of my dad who passed away suddenly. They showed upmost compassion for Dad and us as family. Nothing was to much trouble even to ask a silly question . On funeral day professionalism with warmth. Thank you George Scott .

  • 5 Barry Hall 21st Jan 2021

    Andrea and Neil were always most supportive, kind and helpful at this difficult time, treating me as a friend rather than just a customer.

  • 5 Derek Flood 12th Jan 2021

    Excellent and professional service, would highly recommend

  • 5 Barbara Fowler 22nd Dec 2020

    I understand it is not the 'done thing' to recommend Undertakers... but I just cannot let this opportunity pass by without my comments. The Scott Family (in particular #NeilScott )held my hand and walked me through the most difficult time of my life. I was recommended to Neil by a close friend. Instead of ticking just the one main box... he ticked so many more - with so much patience and consideration. The funeral had to be postponed at one stage because I ended up in Hospital with Covid 19. Nothing was too much for him... he rebooked everything with great compassion. Thank you Neil from the bottom of my heart. If you are looking for Understanding... Compassion... Kindness... Caring...and strength when you are buckling at the knees... then Please let me recommend George Scott Funeral Directors. And I shall go one step further and say if you require a 'Celebrant' then please check out... simply the best #DianaSaxby. Barbara Fowler (Bournemouth)

  • 5 David Lomax 17th Dec 2020

    An amazing thoughtful team who show real compassion during a difficult time. The service was impeccable.
