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.

  • 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 Frances Martin 16th Sep 2020

    On behalf of my family I would again like to thank yous all for your excellent service you gave us at this very difficult time , you go above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough .  Many thanks  Jp & Frances Martin
