Janet Lister 26th Jan 2022

From start to finish of the service provided by Galashiels Co-operative Funeral Care, I received genuine and professional care, attention and understanding from both June and Trish, throughout. I was very well supported in arranging the funeral tailored to my late partner's wishes. They offered me guidance, advice and timely information. They genuinely took the time to ensure that not only were they professionally addressing the admin side of things, their personal and genuine touch before, during and after the funeral was very much appreciated. June and Trish: a dream team; if ever there was one! Jan Lister

Alison Brown 10th Jan 2022

The service we received from Trish, June and staff was outstanding. They led us gently yet efficiently through the whole process, explaining everything fully allowing for a relatively stress free experience at such a sad time. They showed compassion and care and were totally accommodating to any requests we had. The funeral ran seamlessly and  we cannot thank them enough.

Trish and June were amazing with helping me and my sister give our grandparents the send off they deserved, can not thank them enough for their compassion and empathy, they were very proffesional and respectful.

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.
