Reviews for T & R O'Brien Funeral Directors in Glasgow
Thank you to Johnnie, Carol and the whole team at T&R O’Brien (Maryhill) for your outstanding service.
From the first phone call to the actual funeral and beyond, they demonstrated hardworking professionalism and compassion throughout. Their kindness, and reassuring, calming manner, was second to none.
Literally, there was nothing that was too much much trouble and Johnnie and his team accommodated our wishes, requests and exacting standards with grace.
They truly are a credit to their profession, demonstrating attention to detail, coupled with a caring, supportive response to the family and their needs.
The day of the service from beginning to end was exactly what we (and indeed Mum) had wished for her final journey and all went smoothly, made even better by all the wee additional personal touches that we will always be grateful for. Mum truly was treated with dignity and respect.
This is the second time we have called upon T&R O’Brien. The warmth and sensitivity of their approach and being guided by a ‘safe pair of hands’ was exactly as I recalled from the first time around (as well as Carol’s comforting hugs) and was very much appreciated during this difficult time.
We are so glad we found T&R O’Brien to care for our loved ones and I would have NO hesitation in trusting them for future arrangements or in recommending them to others.
Your team’s attendance and support made the occasion stress free.
We would like to send our sincere thanks to the staff of T&R O'Brien Funeral Directors, Glasgow, for the most beautiful, caring, loving way they looked after Mum when she passed. Nothing was any trouble to them and from the moment Mum was with them, we were assured she would be very well looked after/taken care of. We were allowed to see Mum in the Parlour when we wanted to and the soothing, calm presence (with such peaceful background music) was so touching - and we all felt Mum was still "with us" ... every time we seen Mum she was looking radiant, thanks to the help of all the truly amazing staff. Grace lovingly attended to Mum's hair (Mum always liked her hair tidy) .... Linda was "on hand" at the service (with the other members of staff driving the funeral cars/hearse) to oversee the arrangements and ensure all went to plan (which thanks to her it did). John met with us in the Parlour and helped us so much by listening to what we would like for Mum and advised how we could best ensure Mum received the loving send-off she truly deserved - which was not easy under the Lockdown restrictions in place. And ... Carol - not forgetting Carol - - oh my goodness, she was truly amazing! She was so approachable, kind, considerate, helpful, knowledgeable, courteous, professional - and most of all - there at every moment she was needed, even "after hours" and she was also so patient, with her comforting smile - and giving us our "time alone" with Mum, which was so important. She went above and beyond to make sure Mum was looked after; reassuring us at all times that Mum was being taken care of in a precious way (as she was so, so precious to us all) - and even the touching sentiment of a flower being placed in Mum's hands, in the beautiful, peaceful, private room .... it made us feel Mum was still with us and that she knew we were visiting her; and we all agreed it was as if Mum was resting and "smiling" ... which we put down to the devotion of the staff at T&R O'Brien. Even when collecting Mum's casket, Carol was again on hand to help us with her caring ways and considerate, loving manner - - this was not just "business" to Carol - - this was something done out of love. We will NEVER forget the love bestowed on Mum from the staff at T&R O'Brien and in fact one family member (who had funeral details already in place for the future) is changing the plans to have T&R O'Brien take care of the arrangements now. We are so very grateful for the advice and help given from the very moment of Mum passing & us notifying T&R O'Brien; through the very sad period of having to arrange the details - to being allowed to pay our respects to Mum when we wanted to; the staff being "there for us" at the service (treating Mum with such dignity and love) - it was so comforting to hear them talk of Mum as if she was still there ..... and to see and feel the care they provided at all times. The only time we ever experienced anything as beautiful as this previously was 45 years earlier when Mum's Dad (Papa) had passed away - - and it was T&R O'Brien who looked after him then too ..... it was never thought they could have surpassed what they had done then .. but they certainly did with Mum. Thank you to all of you - - it truly was appreciated and made a very difficult time a little more bearable. We lost an absolute Angel in Mum ... but we know that Mum was in the hands of more Angels in the Parlour - - thank you so much to all of the staff at T&R O'Brien. You helped us ensure Mum was at every second treated with loving care and devotion ..... we are deeply indebted to you all and will never, ever forget your kindness and love. We are so grateful as a family and it made it so much more bearable for us.
With much love and thanks always - from the family.
Their sympathy and understanding was so very much appreciated.
Our thanks for their complete help, especially on the day, goes without saying!
We appreciate the service we received from them.
This is the fourth time my family have used T & R O'Brien and each time we have had a highly professional, dignified and respectful service.
My Father's Funeral was handled so well and the advice and guidance I recieved to help me get through this difficult time was exemplary.
