What does a Dignity funeral director do?

We are often asked what a typical day for a funeral director looks like here at T & R O’Brien Funeral Directors.
We support the family ...
At T & R O'Brien Funeral Directors, there will always be someone available to take your call, 24 hours a day. At least one funeral director will remain on call outside of the normal opening hours to ensure guidance and assistance can be provided whenever it is needed.

While care for the departed is a critical element of the funeral director role, we understand that care for those left behind is equally important. Those experiencing loss will have choices to make regarding funeral arrangements, and our funeral directors aim to provide all the guidance needed to make those decisions as easy as possible.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
T & R O'Brien Funeral Directors always ensure they take the time to get to know the deceased to ensure services are as personal as possible. They will also advise throughout the administrative side of bereavement, to ensure that families have all of the information they need to complete the required paperwork.

Every person we care for receives the same attentive treatment and high standards as part of our 'care of the deceased' process. Our team of funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives perform their duties to the highest standards, from the moment of their passing through to the funeral service and final farewell.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
At T & R O'Brien Funeral Directors, we are thankful to the community here in Glasgow for choosing us to support them during their time of need. That is why we like to show gratitude to the local community whenever we can. From working with local care homes to training the clergy in funeral procedure or advising other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, being a part of Dignity means we like to give back to the community that we're proud to serve.
