William Scott Funeral Directors, could not have done any more for us as a family.

They showed compassion and empathy at every stage of the overall process, from our first meeting, to the funeral itself, and also included a follow up call to check we were ok as a family a few days after the funeral.

Special thanks to Margaret for her help at all stages of the process, and to Jim for the nice touch on the day of the funeral, as the funeral car stopped at the end of my Dads street for one last time - we never asked for this, it was just organised for us. A really nice touch, that meant a lot.

My Fathers funeral was carried out exactly to our wishes. After some initial issues over venue caused mostly by Covid restrictions everything else was perfect. Jim was exceptional with his “can do” attitude. Just what is required at a difficult time for our family.

Rating 5.0
Superb service from start to finish, kept us right with all the arrangements and managed the day beautifully. We have had a lot of comments about how dignified the service was, with all the lovely touches like walking in front of the hearse out of our street, and the single rose and photograph on display at the crematorium. All staff were amazing and made a hard day that bit less stressful.
