I could not recommend Andrew Anderson and Sons Funeral Directors enough. Ross Anderson and his team provided us with not only the most professional and knowledgable service they are also very caring and genuine which gives you comfort in the most difficult of circumstances. I was honoured to be asked to carry out the service for my Auntie and Ross helped me through this every step of the way which was a great support. They go above and beyond to make sure the whole process is as easy and straight forward as possible. Thanks so much to Ross, Hamish and the rest of the team. Tina.

I had never had to arrange a funeral before and this was for my mum.  Ross came highly recommended and immediately took on the arrangements and kept me fully informed. On the day everything was perfect and I can't thank Ross and Andersons enough. Stuart

Ross and his team arranged everything for us, supervised by Pat.  At the time when we needed help and guidance, they were there for us. Extremely professional, helpful and smart in appearance.

    There aren’t enough words to express my thanks to Andrew Anderson & Sons. Following the death of my mum, Ross ensured everything was taken care of.   Any request we had, it was no problem. At a time of utter heartbreak and devastation,  Ross was sympathetic, professional and the support we received was very welcome.  I have taken great comfort in knowing that my mum was looked after. Thank you to everyone at Andrew Anderson & sons. I would not hesitate in recommending them.

    Bereavement is a very sad and emotional time , combined with making funeral arrangements can be very stressful , however we were so pleased with the professionalism, kindness, sensitivity ,support and outcome of all the final arrangements for my late father  provided by Ross, Claire and the rest of the team at Andrew Anderson and Sons Funeral Directors Balfron.  Rebecca and Stephen Murray

    We knew this firm from before who had handled my stepmother's and sister's funerals with sensitivity, kindness and compassion. On this occasion of our 91 year old father's funeral, they exceeded everything we had seen before - even going the extra mile to network a superb car in which he travelled his final journey. Everything went seamlessly to plan, according to Dad's wishes and Ross and his team were on hand at all times with any family queries. As a family, we could not have wished for more …. That service was there at the outset from Dad being removed quietly from his home right through to his final journey. Thank you so very much from us all for the dignity, compassion and sensitivity we all experienced from you.

  • 5 Emma Thomson 10th Aug 2018

    We really cannot thank you enough for all the support you have given us in these incredibly difficult circumstances.  Ross struck just the right balance between guiding us through the practicalities, whilst also feeling that we had someone looking out for us as we made the decisions required.  And all at a time when we were dealing with something for which we were completely unprepared.  For that we will always be grateful.

  • 5 Tommy Wright 6th Aug 2018

    From start to finish Ross and his team were amazing. The detail that Ross put in was second to none and his professionalism Really did shine through.Ross explained everything that would happen in great detail from taking my dad from strathcarron hospice to Callander to be made presentable so my family could all say our goodbyes to dad. I have to say that they done such a good job on dad,we were all so happy with how he looked.A wee special mention goes to the woman in the balfron office who was very professional and who made us all so welcome when saying our goodbyes to dad.At the funeral Ross and his staff all showed great dignity and we were very pleased on how it went. On a last note I wii definitely be using Ross,s services again but hopefully not in the near future! Well done Andrew Anderson and sons,top marks from the wright family

    Our utmost gratitude not only for yesterday but over the last few weeks. The compassion you showed when dealing with our family in such difficult circumstances was such a comfort. Everything was just as we wanted: from bringing my husband home, to taking us to the crematorium, then onto the wake you showed such professionalism. Thank you to your wonderful team who behaved with dignity and respect throughout.   Anita

  • 5 Clare Ewing-philip 30th May 2018

    I can’t thank Ross and his team enough for the care and service they provided for me and my family after the sudden passing of my Mum. He went above and beyond in insuring that every little detail I wanted for Mums Funeral was put in place. He has such a kind, compassionate and reassuring nature that I was immediately put at ease. He organised everything for me, from newspaper obituaries, shop window notices and even flowers. Nothing was too much trouble and he assured me that I could call him anytime night or day if I had any questions regarding the funeral. He made sure the funeral was everything I wanted for Mum on the day. Ross even called me a few days after the funeral to check if I was alright. He’s a true professional and I can’t thank him enough for all his hard work and I would recommend Andrew Anderson & Sons to anyone.

  • 5 Margaret Leppard 8th Dec 2017

    Throughout Ross showed profound respect both for my late husband and for diverse members of the family. He was highly professional in advice about the burial plot and legal procedures. An excellent and timely communicator (face to face, phone and email), Ross worked effectively with us to achieve a seamless day including chasing the death certificate, liaising with Stirling Council and the minister and kirk on our behalf; production of a lovely order of service and delightful floral arrangements. Thank you to you and your staff for your contribution to happy memories in the midst of the sadness of loss.

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. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
