Guide to Funeral Directors in Glasgow

Scotland’s largest city, and the third largest city in the UK, the City of Glasgow is home to over half a million people, with a further 1.2 million people living in the Greater Glasgow area. Serving bereaved families in the area are just over 100 funeral directors in Glasgow and the surrounding locales, from over a hundred funeral homes.

The city has a religiously diverse population, with approximately 120 Christian churches of various different branches, 13 mosques, four gurdwaras, seven synagogues and a Hindu mandir. Consequently, many Glaswegian funeral directors are accustomed to and experienced in offering funeral services for various different faiths.

There are 32 cemeteries and churchyards within the city limits. Although many of the older, historic graveyards are closed to new burials, there are plenty of newer sites available, including Linn, Cardonald, Rutherglen Cemetery and the Lambhill/ St. Kentigerns Complex.

There are also eight crematoria, both privately and local authority owned, offering cremations for all religions and beliefs. Some of these crematoria, such as Linn, Daldowie and Glasgow Crematorium (Maryhill), have two service chapels to accommodate multiple services simultaneously.

Such lovely people to deal with at such a sad time. Everyone I met was so helpful and kind. I am glad my husband and I chose them to take care of us in our last journey. I would recommend them to everyone. First class service from start to finish. Jane Murray

From start to finish the staff at Anderson Maguire guided me through a difficult time and made the arrangements so easy.

I don’t think myself brother and sister would have got through the process of arranging my mum funeral as well as we did if it wasn’t for the help and support of David. He’s been extremely helpful and took a lot of the stress off our shoulders I honestly can’t thank you enough. And I would highly recommend anyone like ourself that didn’t know how to even go about arranging a funeral to please go to him he was a godsend. Thanks again David!

We cannot thank Alan and his staff enough for the compassion shown to our family at such a difficult time. There was such a personal touch And everyone felt so at ease with Alan. We could not fault the way the funeral  service was carried out and due to Alan’s attention to detail gave us a sense of comfort at such a difficult time.
