    From the first phone call to Harrison's informing them of my father's passing I could not ask for a better service. The funeral director who was allocated to me was amazing and called me often to check that me and mam were ok. They are so approachable and have decided to use dignity in future. Can't thank the staff at Harrison's and the Reverend enough for all their hard work and caring approach at such a difficult time.

    W. S. Harrison and Son provided a 5 star service, from start to finish, arranging my mother's recent funeral. Their representatives, especially Michael Burn were courteous, efficient, helpful and compassionate throughout a difficult period for the family. I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone needing the services of a funeral director.
