    We would like to express our sincere gratitude and thanks to Gail from the Colston branch of Anderson Maguire for her professionalism and extremely caring and sensitive manner shown to us on the recent sad loss of our father Michael. Nothing was too much trouble and her organisation and planning was perfection. Furthermore the whole team from our Funeral Director to the drivers of the family cars on the day were faultless. Be assured your love ones will be in safe, caring hands at a difficult time. The Conlon Family

  • 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.

  • 5 kellyMarie Rae 1st Feb 2019

    Anderson McGuire’s provided an excellent service from that very first phone call, all through arrangements; even into after care.  The undertakers showed great respect; treated our mum with care and respect - not just another job. Making us feel that she would be well looked after in their care. Gail our funeral director showed professionalism but with a great deal of compassion so at a very difficult time; she guided us through and nothing was too much to ask. She was there for us the whole way through.  Also the drivers never rushed us. They spoke to us. Made us feel at ease. Thanks to all at Anderson McGuire. Maureen’s funeral went as perfectly as one could expect from a funeral.  Anderson McGuire ‘s gave Maureen the send off she well deserved.

  • 5 David Macdonald 24th Oct 2017

    I cannot recommend Anderson & Maguire highly enough from the first minute we contacted them for the funeral of our mother. Martha at the springburn branch was very helpful and with Christopher in charge of the funeral cortège we were in good hands. The professionalism shown and the courteousness of all the drivers was second to none. I would highly recommend Anderson & Maguire to anyone, as they would be in safe and caring hands at a sad time.

  • 5 Stacey Robinson 19th Sep 2017

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.
