David and his team made, what was a horrendous time for us much more bearable to give my dad the dignified send off he deserved. David in particular went more than the extra mile for us as a family, working behind the scenes to fix problems and mistakes the health services made, making sure we got to spend that extra time with dad when it mattered. Beautiful settings, reassuraning, informative and friendly staff. Thank you so much, it meant the world to us. Your all stars!

    Couldn’t have asked anymore from David and Craig, first class care of my Dad from the moment he was taken into their care. All arrangements taken care of with the minimum of fuss and nothing was too much trouble for them. Both guys interacted fantastically with family and friends and were very welcoming at all times and they went out their way to ensure everything went smoothly in the build up and on the day of my Dads funeral.   I would highly recommend Glasgow Independent Funeralcare, you won’t be disappointed.

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.
