    Ross and all of the team offered an outstanding service. Sensitive, compassionate, professional nothing was too much bother. They treated our daughter with dignity and respect and took care of absolutely everything helping us through this most difficult time. 

  • 5 Carol Thain 30th Mar 2021

    Ross and his team are the ultimate professionals. They are dignified and respectful. Nothing is to much trouble for them. We have used them twice now and would not use anyone else now. VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Many thank to the whole team.

  • 5 Audrey Ross 23rd Mar 2021

    The service we received from Andersons was exemplary. From Kevin’s empathetic and sensitive collection of my Dad to the day following the funeral service, we were treated with care and attention to detail. Ross spent time with us as a family, listening to our stories and ensuring that we had the service we wanted. He made himself available to us, answering questions and supporting us on a number of occasions. He was respectful and understanding at all times. On the day of the funeral service Ross ensured that everything went exactly as had been planned. From the flowers to the Order of Service to the actual service, Ross ensured that everything was perfect.  On the day following the funeral Ross called Mum to check in with her. Throughout the two weeks, the family felt supported and cared for by Ross and the team at Andersons. I cannot recommend the services of Andersons too highly. Consummate professionals who go above and beyond to support families during the most challenging of times.

    Navigating what for me has been the greatest loss in my life, I really couldn't have been in better hands. Ross, with whom I had the most contact, was amazing. Not only was he genuinely compassionate and caring, he did absolutely everything to make sure I would have the farewell tribute to my mother that I wished for. Nothing was too much trouble, even when I requested things that hadn't been done before - there were no problems, only solutions. Kevin's warmth and reassurance when I went to their Chapel of Rest to see my mother for the last time helped me see her with a calm and serenity that I hadn't thought would be possible. The sensitivity, caring and sincerity was evident throughout the Andrew Anderson team that I had any contact with, even if only by telephone. Truly the feeling of a family that embraces you with their care and support during a time that you would give anything to not be experiencing.  My heartfelt thanks to them all.

  • 5 Jane Ritchie 30th Oct 2020

    Outstanding and I cannot thank Ross and his team enough for the faultless service that made my mother's funeral such a memorable and beautiful occasion. Ross goes above and beyond in offering the highest level of professionalism, support and calm reassurance. Every detail is considered and his friendly, kind efficiency makes nothing seem unimportant or too much trouble.

  • 5 Shirley Szwak 12th Jul 2019

    Ross treated our family with great consideration at a very difficult and emotional time. He guided us through the arrangements for our family member's funeral in a sensitive and caring way. Nothing was too much trouble and he offered us great support during the whole process.  We thank him sincerely for all his help.  Family of the late Neil Cairns

  • 5 Ruth MacIntosh 7th Jun 2019

    I would like to thank Ross for all his care and support. Also for understanding and carrying out, to the last detail, all our requests. You made a very difficult time much easier to get through without worry.  Thank you 💙

  • 5 Victoria Carroll 27th Feb 2019

    Ross, Claire and team were unbelievably helpful, caring, skilled and adaptable. Our's was not a convention funeral and nothing was any bother or phased Ross. Together we organised the whole event in under 7 days. We can't thank you enough and want to recommend this sensitive, family firm, very highly. Best wishes from all the Nairn Family.

  • 5 Fiona Dickson 9th Feb 2019

    Ross was everything we needed him to be, providing guidance, support, and comfort at a difficult time. Everything was perfectly planned, nothing was left to chance, and the day went very smoothly. He kept each family member's individual needs in mind at all times. Could not recommend enough, thank you for everything.

  • 5 Ruth MacLean 9th Jan 2019

    After my father died Ross Anderson attended promptly and arranged for removal of my father’s body in a sensitive manner.  Arrangements for the funeral were made in an extremely efficient manner and Ross arranged an appointment with the local registrar.  Ross contacted me frequently to update me regarding the arrangements.  Most importantly Ross treated all members of our family (particularly my mother) in an extremely kind and considerate manner and ensured our wishes regarding the funeral were respected.  The actual funeral went smoothly and efficiently.  I would highly recommend this company

  • 5 Douglas Kirk 4th Sep 2018

    The service provided by Andrew Anderson & Sons Funeral Directors could not be faulted. Despite the trauma of losing a loved one, they carried out their 'duties' with dignity and compassion in such a manner that eased the pain of our loss at the final celebration of her wonderful life. The celebrant provided by the undertakers delivered a ceremony that so impressed the family and friends. I have already thanked Andrew Anderson and Sons for a professional service and do so again in this review.

  • 5 Amy Mcdonald 3rd Sep 2018

    Andrew Anderson's have been exemplary in their role as funeral directors. They have given me a huge amount of guidance and support in organising my father's funeral. Easily contactable for advice, no matter how random it seemed to me. Always pleasant, respectful and dignified. At a time when stresses were high, they took a lot of the pressure off. With many thanks Amy McDonald

  • 5 Helen Oxtoby 28th Jun 2018

    Kind, considerate, helpful, flexible. From the very first meeting, to the funeral day and beyond they were there to guide us in planning to perfection.

  • 5 Emma Fitzsimmons 26th Jan 2018

    Ross and his team delivered an exceptional, highly professional service and offered complete support to myself throughout this difficult time.  They were very sympathetic and took time with me and family to make sure that everything was exactly what my partners wishes were.  I cannot thank them enough.  

  • 5 Joyce Nisbet 9th Jan 2018

    Andrew Anderson and Sons were tremendously supportive at a difficult time. All issues were sensitively but efficiently addressed.  Despite both proximity to Christmas and poor weather, the funeral, Memorial Service and light lunch all took place without any difficulties. Ross Anderson sympathetically guided me through the various options and aspects.   Nothing was too much trouble.  When necessary, there was clarity about priorities and time constraints, but without me ever feeling pressurised.  I cannot recommend Anderson's highly enough. 

  • 5 Adrienne and Steven Aitken 6th Dec 2017

    Ross Anderson of Andrew Anderson and sons is a truly special person. He could not have cared for my family more during such a very difficult time. With his help and support we were able to have a beautiful and personal funeral. His kindness and generosity of spirit will be remembered forever. 

  • 5 Leona Gilhooley 2nd Dec 2017

    This funeral company was amazing from beginning to the end.  My friends were looked after graciously and compassionately in a caring and empathetic way, every step of the way.  Ross was a true gent who directed everything and looked after every little detail.  Until you have to go through arranging a funeral you don’t know how much goes on and what needs done but for my friends who were the clients, most of the details needing done were done by Ross and his staff. Which gave them the time they needed to grieve and do the important things.   Thank you so much to Ross and his team for everything you did.  I would highly highly recommend this funeral director.
