  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.

  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

The service form Buchanan & Hogg was excellent. From start to finish the procedure was made very easy at a very stressful time. Linda was a great help in explaining things in a very sympathetic way and I knew I could contact her at any time if I needed to.
I was able to see my mother to put my mind at ease, she looked very peaceful and her coffin was well presented. Her hair and nails were lovely, thankyou for taking care of her so well.
The funeral procession was very professional, the limos perfect and staff very courteous, thankyou guys.
Also a thankyou to the celebrant Kay organised by Linda, lovely service which everyone commented on.
Lastly thankyou for the lovely gift of my mothers framed photograph.

I found the staff at Buchanan & Hogg to be very professional. Due to Covid19 the circumstances were different from normal but they still managed to provide an excellent service from the minute I first contacted them until they brought us home from the funeral. The aftercare was most appreciated as well.
Response from Buchanan & Hogg Funeral Directors
