The service from Barclays was very good, at a difficult time emotionally and during the impacts of Covid they provided just what support was necessary. The lady I dealt with directly was very polite and professional when dealing with my Mother and I. The team on the day with the cars etc were all top notch.
I would have no qualms recommending Barclays to anyone who may need the services of a Funeral Director.

At a difficult time we were shown such empathy and dignity by everyone involved. We were guided gently on our journey to give our Dad a beautiful service from start to finish. It gave us peace knowing there was someone to help when we were lost. Thankyou for a seamless service given with compassion. Finally thankyou for looking after our Dad until he was at rest.
Response from Barclays Funeral Directors

I found Linda to be very kind and considerate when we went to arrange my husband's funeral, she was so helpful guiding us through the options available to us. On the day of the funeral all went to plan and Gavin and the other staff were so considerate to our family, it made a very difficult day bearable. Thank you all so much

We recently used Barclays in Davidson’s Mains, Linda helped us deal with the arrangements after the loss of my wife Linda. Everything went according to plan. Linda explained everything that would happen in the lead up to the funeral so there were no surprises.
Excellent service.

This was my first experience of Funeral Directors and arranging a funeral, what was a scary and emotional task was made very easy by the staff at Davidson Mains. They provided me with regular updates throughout the process and helped explain exactly what would happen. The staff recommended a Celebrant called Bill, based on my description of my late Father - he was absolutely fantastic and portrayed my Father very well and made the funeral interesting for all. It was a painfree experience, which helped so much. Highly recommended.
