  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

William Tyre and Son provided a first class service to our family when our mother passed away on June 25th this year. They had provided a service when our father died back in 2018, and our mother requested that we use the same undertakers when her time came.

On both occasions, it was Ross who visited us at home to help make arrangements (even though this included a visit to pick up my mum at 4.30am). This was not a problem for him. He is both professional and friendly and ensured the day ran very smoothly taking the worry away from the family. Having someone like Ross who communicated well with the family and who took time to work with us over the arrangements made the situation seem less stressful. He even delivered our mother's remains to our home the day after the funeral in order that we could scatter these before my sister returned to Spain where she lives. The drivers of the funeral cars on the day were also professional and pleasant.

We have no negative comments to make nor anything we could have asked for to be done to a higher standard. The family are keen to conclude our mother's estate and are still awaiting the final invoice from yourselves.

Kind Regards
Gillian Burns on behalf of the Hebditch family.
