Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
Nothing was too much trouble.
She made arranging the sad business of the funeral so uncomplicated and she put us at ease right from the start.
At the final service, everything she arranged for us made sure my mother in law received the best possible send of and it was everything we wished ,
Lillian was kind and friendly as was the other members of staff who officiated on the day of the funeral and gave attention to every detail. My wife and ,the rest of the family and I were so pleased we chose Gordon and Watson to organise everything.
From our first contact, the service given was beyond reproach.
Our first meeting with Ian set the tone in terms of care, consideration and compassion.
Every recommendation they made turned out to be absolutely perfect for me and the family.
From start to finish everything was so professionally dealt with, but always with our emotions and fragile state put first. The wee "extras" that kept happening turned a fraught time into a much more relaxed experience for us.
The overall arrangements from start to finish could not have been any better. From the guidance regarding formalities to the choices given at every step
One of my cousins remarked that if there could be be such a thing as a beautiful funeral then that is what was given to my wife
My sincere and lasting thank you to everyone one involved
I can only give you the highest possible recommendation
