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.

I would like to thank Anderson Maguire for their thoughtfulness and sympathetic way they helped me get through a very difficult time. I was let down with another funeral directors company and at the last moment Anderson Maguire stepped in and saved the day. I would especially like to thank Sandra for her help and understanding and the drivers on the day of Angela's funeral. Thank you all for your excellent service. I would recommed Anderson Maguire to anyone seeking the need for 1st class undertakers.

Allan Menzies and team were so professional throughout. From the time my dad passed until the day of his funeral I was made aware of every step that was happening. At no time did I feel pressured into making decisions, everything was done as I asked and nothing was too much trouble. The day of viewing was wonderful. The ambience of the Parlour and the staffs friendliness was perfect. Although it was a very sad time for my family, we were all made to feel special. Allan Menzies and team done my dad proud. From the bottom of my heart, thank you x

On behalf of myself, my sister and all of my family, we honestly can't thank David Robb and his team enough for everything over the past few weeks. They have been nothing short of outstanding. From the moment we came and spoke to you we knew we had made the right decision for you to care for our Mum on her last journey. You truly are one in a million David, and thank you for all the special touches even after the funeral. You will never know how much we appreciate everything you have done. We can't recommend them highly enough. They show the care and compassion that is often missed with other funeral directors. David and his team truly go above and beyond to ensure an outstanding service.
