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 was extremely impressed with the service provided by Birrell Corrance. I felt completely comfortable with the whole process. It is a very well run, tight knit business and Robert and Jacqui went out of their way to make sure my husband’s funeral was everything it should have been, even suggesting extra touches to make it more special. They make you feel like family and that was something! Thank you xx

I have nothing but the greatest respect for the staff at Anderson Maguire at Partick. At a time of great personal sorrow I had to arrange the funeral of my young sister, I choose Anderson Maguire and in doing so met three individuals, Maureen, Julie and Chris who could not have been more helpful and considerate and who are a credit to their company and profession. It is my intention to write to Anderson Maguire head office to inform them of the high quality and compassion of their staff at the Partick.
