    This is the third time in as many years that I have sadly had to call on the services of the team at John Weir.  On each occasion they have been faultless with regards to their expertise, experience, professionalism and, importantly, compassion.  Thanks in particular to John and Julia.

    Thank you to Julia at John Weir for making the process of dealing with the funeral arrangements for my late Dad so easy and efficient. It made all the difference through a difficult time. Thanks also to the entire team there who guided us on the day, and were beyond professional and kind.

    I can't recommend John Weir enough. Thank you so much Julia and team!

  • 5 Peter Alexander 30th Oct 2023

    John Weir Funeral Directors have been simply outstanding. Julia struck the tone just right to ensure that we were looked after incredibly well whilst meeting the required timelines. Shane and his colleagues delivered an excellent service to our family on the day of the funeral ensuring that my father was offered the grace and dignity that he deserved as he was laid to rest. Ben and Kelly took great care of my father whilst he was in his care in the lead up to his funeral. An amazing team who all pulled together and afforded us the right levels of empathy and understanding as we, as a family, aimed to strike the right balance of dignity and intimacy. We could not have done it without such a wonderful team at John Weir's. Thank you all so much.
