We liaise with the clergy of your choice, or if there is no Church connection we advise on the clergy appropriate to the area where your loved one or relative lived.

We confirm in writing both the funeral arrangements and an estimate of the costs involved prior to the funeral taking place.

We advise whether a claim can be made to the Department of Work and Pensions for help with funeral costs.

We have arrangement rooms and viewing rooms at all our premises. We also have Service Rooms and the facility for organ music, CD or tape music at our Cardean Street, Lochee and St Andrews premises.

We have vast experience on the repatriation of deceased to and from abroad and to and from all parts of the United Kingdom.

The services we offer are comprehensive and are performed to the highest professional standard. We are caring and compassionate funeral directors and endeavour to personalise every funeral arrangement to meet your requirements.

We can also arrange for CD music to be played at Churches, Crematorium and Cemeteries with the CD being made available to us the day prior to the funeral.
