I can’t recommend John Kane funeral Directors enough, from the arrangements right through the actual service and even beyond.
Sharon talked us through every single step of the arrangements even things we hadn’t thought about ourselves, Emma and Alec were by my side keeping me right throughout the lovely service , all my friends and family commented on what a lovely service it was . After the service I had a lovely chat with Emma which really really helped me and then a phone call from Dignity to see how I was doing . Dignity provide everything you need without having to go to multiple places which really helps and they do it all with Dignity and such caring .

Had a lovely experience with John Kane, Dumbarton. Sharon was so lovely and helpful from start to finish. I lost my mum way before I ever expected, at 28 years old I never had a clue where to start but this wasn’t a problem at all.

My mum had the most lovely day possible and every aspect was done beautifully and as stress free as could be.

I’d highly recommend using John Kane Dumbarton.

Thanks for everything you done for me, my family and most of all my lovely Mum.
