Guide to Funeral Directors in Glasgow

Scotland’s largest city, and the third largest city in the UK, the City of Glasgow is home to over half a million people, with a further 1.2 million people living in the Greater Glasgow area. Serving bereaved families in the area are just over 100 funeral directors in Glasgow and the surrounding locales, from over a hundred funeral homes.

The city has a religiously diverse population, with approximately 120 Christian churches of various different branches, 13 mosques, four gurdwaras, seven synagogues and a Hindu mandir. Consequently, many Glaswegian funeral directors are accustomed to and experienced in offering funeral services for various different faiths.

There are 32 cemeteries and churchyards within the city limits. Although many of the older, historic graveyards are closed to new burials, there are plenty of newer sites available, including Linn, Cardonald, Rutherglen Cemetery and the Lambhill/ St. Kentigerns Complex.

There are also eight crematoria, both privately and local authority owned, offering cremations for all religions and beliefs. Some of these crematoria, such as Linn, Daldowie and Glasgow Crematorium (Maryhill), have two service chapels to accommodate multiple services simultaneously.

We cannot recommend this company enough. Nothing was too much to ask and everything was perfect on the day which was very comforting at such a sad time. David and Caroline could not have been more helpful and supportive while arranging our Dads funeral and we could not be more grateful for their help in ensuring he got the send off he deserved. Special thanks to Tam the piper who also went over and above on the day to make the music personal to our big guy.

David delivered an excellent service and I could not recommend him enough. He exceeded our expectations at all times. Throughout our meetings and discussions he aimed to ensure our needs and wishes were met. Nothing was a bother to him and he ensured our deceased mother was treated in a respectful and dignified way at all times. David continually supported us at every stage from collecting our mum to choosing her clothes, flowers and music for her service. All friends and family who paid their last respect at the viewing of our mum and who attended the funeral service, complimented the send of she received. This was down to the commitment and dedication from David and the service his company provide. He took away the stress, pressure and strain that organising a funeral can place on families. He made himself available to provide advice on any issues we were unsure of. I speak on behalf of all my family and highly recommend Davids services to anyone  who experience losing a loved one.

I don’t think myself brother and sister would have got through the process of arranging my mum funeral as well as we did if it wasn’t for the help and support of David. He’s been extremely helpful and took a lot of the stress off our shoulders I honestly can’t thank you enough. And I would highly recommend anyone like ourself that didn’t know how to even go about arranging a funeral to please go to him he was a godsend. Thanks again David!
