Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. It has been an honour to look after you and your loved one and to respond sensitively to your specific needs.
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.

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

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
I am glad that the final wishes for your Mother were carried out to the highest standard and it’s good to hear that you and the family received helpful guidance through this time.
