Extremely professional service. Arrangements made with sensitivity and compassion.

The staff could not have been more helpful. They made the process of organising and carrying out the funeral of my mother very easy and sympathetic.

Rating 5.0
With any service provider, it is the people you are dealing with rather than the company or brand that is important. In Edna Pook, J & J Gray has not only one of the best funeral directors, not only one of the best service providers, but actually one of the best human beings I have had the pleasure to have met. She is outstanding at her job, brilliantly efficient, thinks of everything long in advance of it becoming a reality and exudes genuine human empathy at a very deep level. Her colleagues are excellent too, but Edna is truly remarkable. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Response from J & J Gray Funeral Directors

Edna at J&J Gray Dundee looked after my late mother's funeral arrangements. We knew mum 's time would be short so I went in to discuss things with Edna before she died. She was wonderful, sensitive and caring but practical and informative as well. She gave me an estimate of the costs I could expect. Not particularly cheap but well worth it for the service provided. She suggested ways of keeping costs down and was available whenever I needed to answer all my questions. When the time came I just had to phone her and she took over everything from there. The funeral director was very kind and arranged to drive the hearse past my mothers sheltered housing complex where she had been so happy in her last years. It was extremely moving. The service went beautifully and all our family commented on the moving and funny celebration of her life. I would recommend J&J Gray to anyone looking for a helpful, sensitive and professional undertakers .
Response from J & J Gray Funeral Directors
