This was the first time I have had to organise a Funeral, and was getting worked up about how it would all come together from organising things like Flowers, Music, Order of Service Pamphlets Etc. Needn't have worried, with the help of Gail at Anderson Maguire Colston Branch, she talked us through it all, and every aspect was arranged at the one time in a single visit. I was also delighted with the presentation of my dear Wife at her Viewing, she was as we remembered her before her long illness took its toll on her and she looked beautiful and at Peace. Service continued after the Funeral with follow up calls from Gail to ask if everything went well.

This is not the first time I've dealt with Anderson McGuire Colston branch. I have used them when my stepdad passed in 2019 then again in September when my mum passed away. The very capable and lovely Gail Sheer looked after me and guided me through the process to ensure I and my family had everything we needed from coffin , car, flowers, order of service, memorial cards. Gail is a credit to your company. Constantly keeping me updated throughout. To ensure everything went smoothly

    Everyone at Anderson McGuire have been so helpful and supportive to our family. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they gave Jack the most lovely funeral. So much care shown at all times. Gail was exceptional in arranging my dads funeral, nothing was too much trouble for her. 

  • 5 Lynn Hughes 29th Jan 2021

    I mainly dealt with Gail who was amazing and made it so easy for me working hard to meet my requests. From then every member of the team I met had the same level of excellence from Martin the funeral director to Jennifer in the mortician office and Aidan who was our car driver on the day. Organising a funeral is something no one ever wants to do but Anderson Maguire team made the process bearable and I couldn’t have asked for more under current circumstances. Thank you. 

  • 5 Lorraine Milne 20th Jan 2021

    The complete service we received from all staff from the Colston Springburn branch was exceptional from start to finish and we cannot thank them enough. Every little detail was exactly what we wanted for our mum and so much more. The professionalism of all staff especially Gail,Alan and Martin was clear to see from the get go they definitely made what was a really tough time that much easier to deal with. From the bottom of our hearts thankyou. Lorraine and David Milne.

  • 5 Roseann McNeil 29th Nov 2020

    To plan my mum's funeral was the most hardest thing I had to do in my life,they made me feel at ease and helped me not to completely fall apart. They were great at taking everything that I said about my mum and planned it to the way that my mum would have if she was doing it for herself,they were excellent in every way and very supportive through it all.

  • 5 Marion MacDowell 25th Oct 2020

  • 5 Lisa Strang 12th Jul 2020

    I have now used Anderson Maguire  for all my Dad, Gran and now my Mum, and each time they deliver a first class service. They make a very difficult time a little easier.  Everything was organised for us, with no hassle just say what it is you want and it’s done.  Everything is done with respect for the person and the family. I would like to give a special mention to Gail in your Colston office that woman is amazing! Nothing is to much for her, she goes over and above for both my gran and my mum, the woman is a angel.  The viewing for my mum was also done perfectly nothing felt rushed and again very respectful.  The day itself a perfect send off for her as hard as it was Your team made it special. All the guys are lovely, first name terms with you making you feel at ease, taking care of my mum on her journey and also checking that the family are ok with everything.  Thank you once again for a fantastic service.

    Can't praise the staff at the colston branch enough from Gail who took us through the painful process with respect and compassion and for Chris and his team who took our mum on her final journey . The dignity and respect shown to the whom family from beginning to end was truly commendable we cannot THANK you all enough .x

  • 5 John Thomson 19th Jan 2020

    The team  at Anderson Maguire were excellent from the moment we walked through their door, welcomed by Gail, to leaving their beautiful cars when they dropped us at the hotel we’d chosen for the bereavement lunch after the service.  Due to the time of year, between Xmas & New Year, availability and completion of the required documentation was somewhat delayed, but Gail ensured matters progressed whilst we waited.

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.
