The extras that make a goodbye extra special
The attention to every detail is hugely important to us. It’s what makes a funeral more memorable and more special. Which is why we help families with every single aspect.
Our tranquil homes
Our funeral homes throughout Glasgow are warm, welcoming, comforting places that offer you a calming, reassuring space in which you can plan with a trusted partner who can listen and help. They’re somewhere your family can gather together, where everyone feels reassured and looked after. It’s here the deceased can rest, if that’s your wish. Or we can bring your loved one home, or to a church of your choosing.
Our cortege fleet
We know your family and friends want to travel in dignified comfort on your way to say goodbye. We have a collection of beautifully stylish Jaguar hearses and limousines. Your comfort, safety and privacy is very important to us, which is why we regularly renew and update our fleet. Our respectful, uniformed drivers and dedicated funeral director are there to look after you at all times.
Catering & music
If you’re planning a reception of wake, we can help you find a suitable space for everyone to get together. And we work with a number of local partners who can provide a wide choice of food and beverages. Music also plays a very important part in proceedings – both during and after the service, and we can help you with a playlist that reflects the musical taste of your loved one.
From sending out thank you cards, to submitting announcements to newspapers, we take care of all the little details. During an already stressful time, you don’t need to worry that anything will be forgotten or missed off the to do list. We can help you write the exact wording for your notice, and then place it in the local paper to let friends and family know about the service arrangements.
We have our own expert monumental mason at Anderson Maguire who can create a fitting and lasting memorial for your loved one of the highest quality craftmanship. We have a wide range of hand crafted styles and materials that you can have a look at, and you can talk to your funeral director about what you might want to say on it. We can also add inscriptions to existing headstones.
Getting the right flowers is a small detail, but an important one. Bouquets and wreaths, sprays and baskets, posies and personalised tributes are a colourful, striking way of tailoring a service. We can chat you through all the various options of floral tributes, and show you a range of styles that you can choose from. We will arrange for them to be delivered and set in place for the funeral.
