May Garrity 26th Sep 2019

I can't fault the service we received as such a difficult time.  Philip made the funeral day run smoothly and explained step by step how the funeral would be conducted, in a phone call conversation. On the day He was very professional and respectful.

  • 5 Norma Kane 29th Oct 2017

    The service provided was excellent on all levels. The Staff, cars, coffin, flowers, service, cloisters chapel, on the day were excellent. The prior arrangements in purchasing the funeral at your office was very easy and straightforward with very helpful staff. The choices available allowed us to choose a package that was perfectly suited to us and provided good value. The Funeral was conducted very professionally, dignified, warm and friendly. The Celebration service was excellent, time was spent getting to know about Norman so everyone left with smiles after recalling his good times and achievements. We would definitely recommend Scot-Mid Funeral services and Liz *** who conducted the Celebration service.

  • 5 George Prentice 11th Sep 2017

    From start to finish, the service provided by Co-operative Funerals was first class, nothing was too much trouble leading up to the funeral and on the day Philip Bryan and his colleagues were excellent, putting everyone at ease and conducting their duties with consumate professionalism. Would not hesitiate to recommend their services or use them again for any other friend or family member that required them. They turned what could have been a time of sorrow and confusion into a sea of calm and efficiency, could not have asked for more.

    Chris Armstrong, Funeral Manager replied
    Dear Mr Prentice, thank you very much for your positive review. I appreciate your comments and will pass them onto Philip and his colleagues, with best wishes Chris Armstrong

Frequently Asked Questions

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. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.
