Springburn Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

We are all so pleased with all services provided and the respect and dignity that not only my mother was provided with but also the rest of our family, particularly at a very emotional and stressful time. Many thanks from the Mason family

I was disappointed with the service I received. I had particular difficulties getting the order of service completed to my satisfaction. I was sent several drafts by the funeral director with typing errors and fonts of varying sizes put together which looked awful. I had to keep phoning to point out errors which is an added hassle when you are trying to cope with a difficult and painful bereavement. I was also disappointed that despite stating in advance that I wished for family members to be involved in carrying in the coffin, this was completely overlooked on the day and my mother was unceremoniously wheeled in to the crematorium. Another issue which I was unprepared for was the fact that the minister was unwilling to lead the singing of the hymn's which meant that nobody knew when to start singing and it lead to a very embarrassing situation where the hymn had to be stopped halfway through because of the confusion. A bit of foresight on the part of the funeral director could have alerted me to this possibility. One otther point which i disliked was that the flowers id picked specificslly to be placed over the coffin as in the photo i was shown in the funetal directors broichure wete stuck at the back of tje hearse. Again, attentio to detail.was missing. All in all it was not the funeral I we would have wished for for my mum and I wouldn't recommend these funeral directors for the above reasons.

First it wasn't Knightswood it was Hume St, Jim Fleming was outstanding from the moment we first had contact with him and he answered every phone call at any time If I have to arrange another funeral I would contact him again.
