Due to the professional and caring services William Scott gave to my mother’s funeral, I used them again for my brother’s.
Nothing was too much trouble for Laura and Jim. They showed so much respect, immense patience and professionalism while guiding me through the steps at such a distressing time.
A very traditional and touching part of the service was Jim walking in front of the hearse for some distance.
Thanks also goes to all members of staff who showed great respect from the funeral parlour, throughout the service to leaving the crematorium.
Response from William Scott Funeral Directors
Thank you for entrusting us with the care of another loved one. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service.

The team were compassionate and professional, and made sure that we had everything we needed and answered any and all questions we had. They were really good with dealing with my dad (who has dementia) and keeping him involved while we planned my mother's funeral which we appreciated. It was the little things that made a difference - when we were struggling to pick photos they let us know we could have five, and then helped by saying which ones would show up best on the order of service.
Response from William Scott Funeral Directors

William Scott provided all the arrangements for my father’s funeral in July and I absolutely have no hesitation in recommending the company. From initial contact up to and including the day of his funeral they were most helpful, accommodating, supportive and compassionate. Nothing was too difficult for them and the attention to detail was to be commended.

A relative mentioned that they had attended another funeral just after my father’s and the difference in professional standards was very apparent. A testament to every member of staff at William Scott.

They went out of their way to help us to have exactly the kind of ceremony we wanted including finding the family layer to inter ashes. Flowers were beautiful and exactly what we asked for.

Gillian and David provided an excellent service, dealing sensitively and efficiently with all the arrangements. We were particularly grateful that they listened carefully to our requirements for a non-religious funeral and set everything in place to match our needs with no fuss or bother, exactly as we requested. Overall a faultless level of service.
