From start to finish the service of David and his team was excellent. They gave us so much more than I expected to get arranging a funeral during Covid. They gave us such a personal touch which helped all the family say our final goodbyes to our lovely Dad. Thanks so much for everything, especially looking after my late Father and the lovely approach you gave to the family.

  • 5 Maria Francis 6th Oct 2020

    I cannot speak highly enough if David and the team at Glasgow Independent Funerals. From our first meeting, they provided support and clarity in what was a very difficult  time for my family.  Every detail was as we wanted it, from mums unique casket to the drive by from her house- a way to include cherished family and neighbours who were unable to attend because of the current restrictions. The recommended Celebrant was fabulous and truly incapsulated our mum is a well delivered service. The communication from all involved was outstanding and the financial aspects where without surprise. We honestly believed our mum was well looked after for whilst  In their care. An odd thing... but I would definitely use their services again should the need arise.

  • 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!

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.

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.
