Sheila Hammond 17th Feb 2019

Yvonne and her team were excellent. They took time to listen, helped give my sister the perfect send off....the personal touches they also added were very thoughtful....cannot fault anything..

Catherine Dods 4th Feb 2019

Having used much larger Funeral Directors for family members in the past I was glad I contacted Porteous Family Funeral Directors. Yvonne in Blackhall Branch exceeded all expectations when dealing with my Mum’s Funeral. I couldn’t have asked for a better service. Yvonne spent time with me explaining every step and helped me with decisions. Her kindness, compassion and attention to detail made a difficult time much easier to cope with. C Dods

    Mark, Yvonne and their amazing team could not have been more helpful and supportive during a very difficult time for us. They were always at the end of the phone or an email to guide us throughout the funeral preparations for our dear Dad and were always happy to meet us in person to go over details. Nothing was too much trouble and they dealt with us with such compassion and a very human touch. We will forever be grateful to them for the care them showed to us and the dignity and respect they afforded our Dad. I cannot speak highly enough of them.

  • 5 Graeme Miller 5th Dec 2018

    Thanks to Yvonne at the Blackhall branch for helping us with all of the arrangements at such a difficult time. Yvonne really did provide a personal service and was very kind and sensitive.

  • 5 Lynne Bradford 30th Nov 2018

    Caring and compassionate throughout. 

  • 5 Richard Watt 8th Oct 2018

    Porteous Funeral Directors could not have been more attentive, visiting me on several occasions at home to go over the unusual and highly personal arrangements I wanted to make for my wife's funeral, besides making regular phone contact to check on details, being flexible and adaptable and making doubly sure at every step that the funeral ceremony would go smoothly exactly as planned by me and my family. Mark Porteous, his son, Grant, and their staff were unfailingly kind, considerate and friendly. I cannot imagine anyone doing things better. The funeral ran without a hitch despite the complexities of having eight family members involved in the ceremony, plus a video, live music, recorded music and a 50 photo slide show. Nothing fazed Mark and his colleagues who cheerfully found a way around all potential difficulties. As far as I'm concerned, no praise is high enough.

  • 5 Jean Marsland 28th Sep 2018

    I found everyone at Porteous extremely helpful and went the extra mile to make sure everything went to plan.  I want to thank everyone for their help especially Grant.
