    Couldn’t have chosen a better funeral director to help me plan Richards funeral. From the beginning David was so good and really made you feel like he had known Richard and at hard times it was good to know Richard was in good hands. I would highly recommend them to anyone

  • 5 Irene Hagan 31st Mar 2019

    Thank you very much for everything you’s done For my brother who was only 38 years old who sadly passed on 22nd of December. The care & time you put in was amazing. David thank you for coming out & helping us with the arrangements. Caroline thank you for helping me when I needed it. Sorry took me so long to leave a review it hasn’t been easy with me with me only giving birth three days before my brother passed away & having to arrange my brothers funeral but David & Caroline helped my family so much, I would highly recommend them. 

  • 5 Karen Rudden 15th Jan 2019

    We cannot recommend this company enough. Nothing was too much to ask and everything was perfect on the day which was very comforting at such a sad time. David and Caroline could not have been more helpful and supportive while arranging our Dads funeral and we could not be more grateful for their help in ensuring he got the send off he deserved. Special thanks to Tam the piper who also went over and above on the day to make the music personal to our big guy.

  • 5 Stephanie Crawford 3rd Jan 2019

    David delivered an excellent service and I could not recommend him enough. He exceeded our expectations at all times. Throughout our meetings and discussions he aimed to ensure our needs and wishes were met. Nothing was a bother to him and he ensured our deceased mother was treated in a respectful and dignified way at all times. David continually supported us at every stage from collecting our mum to choosing her clothes, flowers and music for her service. All friends and family who paid their last respect at the viewing of our mum and who attended the funeral service, complimented the send of she received. This was down to the commitment and dedication from David and the service his company provide. He took away the stress, pressure and strain that organising a funeral can place on families. He made himself available to provide advice on any issues we were unsure of. I speak on behalf of all my family and highly recommend Davids services to anyone  who experience losing a loved one. 

  • 5 Leeanna Miller 1st Dec 2018

    I don’t think myself brother and sister would have got through the process of arranging my mum funeral as well as we did if it wasn’t for the help and support of David. He’s been extremely helpful and took a lot of the stress off our shoulders I honestly can’t thank you enough. And I would highly recommend anyone like ourself that didn’t know how to even go about arranging a funeral to please go to him he was a godsend. Thanks again David!

    On behalf of myself, my sister and all of my family, we honestly can't thank David Robb and his team enough for everything over the past few weeks. They have been nothing short of outstanding. From the moment we came and spoke to you we knew we had made the right decision for you to care for our Mum on her last journey. You truly are one in a million David, and thank you for all the special touches even after the funeral. You will never know how much we appreciate everything you have done. We can't recommend them highly enough. They show the care and compassion that is often missed with other funeral directors. David and his team truly go above and beyond to ensure an outstanding service.

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.
