Telephone us as soon as you wish on 01259 725 999
and a member of staff, not an answering machine, will personally answer your call. We are there to advise and guide you, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
You do not need a death certificate before contacting us. We can meet you in the comfort of your own home, or in our Sauchie premises where we have rooms suitable for discussion of funeral arrangements.
Facilities are provided both day and night to transfer the deceased to our funeral home.
At our arrangement interview, which may take place in our office or in the comfort of your own home, we will discuss options for the funeral itself and complete all relevant paperwork.
We will then liaise with all medical staff, clergy, crematoria and cemeteries to co-ordinate the timings of the funeral. We will organise press notices, flowers, catering and any other needs you may have.
The following points will be part of the decision process of the funeral. Each will be fully discussed and explained during the arrangement process:
Burial or Cremation – If a burial, do you have an existing lair or will you require help with purchasing a new one? If a cremation do you want the coffin to be carried in by our staff or by your family?
Timing – What day and times will be most suitable for all participants? Previous bookings may mean that your preferred time is unavailable so do you have a second choice?
Participants – The service can be conducted by a priest, minister, humanist official, civil celebrant, friend or relative? We can make the necessary arrangements on your behalf.
Order of Service Sheets – these can be personalised to include a colour photograph or a special poem of your choice. There is no extra charge for this service.
Fleet – we have recently purchased a black Jaguar hearse & limousine. The limousine can carry up to 7 people. We also have a black removal vehicle which is a valuable asset to our fleet. We can arrange for additional limousines if so required. We can also supply a piper.
Floral Tributes – wreaths, sprays or themed arrangements of your favourite flowers with selected colours can be arranged on your behalf from reputable local florists.
Catering – if you require funeral catering we can liaise with the hotel of your choice for the refreshments you request. Will you prefer a choice of drinks or specific drinks on arrival – will you provide a simple buffet or a lunch?
