    We would like to give generous thanks to A.P McDonald Funeral services for their kindness, support and professionalism during a very difficult time after losing our Dad.  Paul and Andy went above and beyond to help make the service run as smoothly as possible, especially as it was during the lockdown.  They are a family run business which made it feel personal and they were always available to talk and offer advice. They made us feel like part of the family.  We wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend them. 

  • 5 Lisa Taylor 18th Apr 2020

    Paul and Ashley were fantastic from start to finish. Very professional but loving in a very special way unique to them. I put all my faith in them and they guided me through everything in these difficult and unusual circumstances. I can not thank them enough

  • 5 Sandra Jones 27th Aug 2019

    Paul and Ashley supported us as a family with the upmost respect and professionalism.  They took care of our brother like he was one of their own family members, they went above and beyond and I would recommend them to anyone.

    Having spoke to several funeral directors I knew A P McDonald was for us. From the moment I started talking to them they made me feel at ease and that they were there for us as a family and not just going through the motions of a business. On the day everything was explained to dad, my brother and myself and time was given at the end of the service for some quiet time with mum and her close family whilst the rest of the visitors awaited outside. I can't thank them enough for the support in which they have given to my dad and myself through this tough time. Even at the end of the service we had a chat and they still offered their support if ever we needed it or if I was concerned for dad they would chat with him. I really can't thank them enough for helping us through such an horrendous time of our life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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.
