We knew this firm from before who had handled my stepmother's and sister's funerals with sensitivity, kindness and compassion. On this occasion of our 91 year old father's funeral, they exceeded everything we had seen before - even going the extra mile to network a superb car in which he travelled his final journey. Everything went seamlessly to plan, according to Dad's wishes and Ross and his team were on hand at all times with any family queries. As a family, we could not have wished for more …. That service was there at the outset from Dad being removed quietly from his home right through to his final journey. Thank you so very much from us all for the dignity, compassion and sensitivity we all experienced from you.

We really cannot thank you enough for all the support you have given us in these incredibly difficult circumstances.  Ross struck just the right balance between guiding us through the practicalities, whilst also feeling that we had someone looking out for us as we made the decisions required.  And all at a time when we were dealing with something for which we were completely unprepared.  For that we will always be grateful.

From start to finish Ross and his team were amazing. The detail that Ross put in was second to none and his professionalism Really did shine through.Ross explained everything that would happen in great detail from taking my dad from strathcarron hospice to Callander to be made presentable so my family could all say our goodbyes to dad. I have to say that they done such a good job on dad,we were all so happy with how he looked.A wee special mention goes to the woman in the balfron office who was very professional and who made us all so welcome when saying our goodbyes to dad.At the funeral Ross and his staff all showed great dignity and we were very pleased on how it went. On a last note I wii definitely be using Ross,s services again but hopefully not in the near future! Well done Andrew Anderson and sons,top marks from the wright family

    Our utmost gratitude not only for yesterday but over the last few weeks. The compassion you showed when dealing with our family in such difficult circumstances was such a comfort. Everything was just as we wanted: from bringing my husband home, to taking us to the crematorium, then onto the wake you showed such professionalism. Thank you to your wonderful team who behaved with dignity and respect throughout.   Anita

    I can’t thank Ross and his team enough for the care and service they provided for me and my family after the sudden passing of my Mum. He went above and beyond in insuring that every little detail I wanted for Mums Funeral was put in place. He has such a kind, compassionate and reassuring nature that I was immediately put at ease. He organised everything for me, from newspaper obituaries, shop window notices and even flowers. Nothing was too much trouble and he assured me that I could call him anytime night or day if I had any questions regarding the funeral. He made sure the funeral was everything I wanted for Mum on the day. Ross even called me a few days after the funeral to check if I was alright. He’s a true professional and I can’t thank him enough for all his hard work and I would recommend Andrew Anderson & Sons to anyone.

    Throughout Ross showed profound respect both for my late husband and for diverse members of the family. He was highly professional in advice about the burial plot and legal procedures. An excellent and timely communicator (face to face, phone and email), Ross worked effectively with us to achieve a seamless day including chasing the death certificate, liaising with Stirling Council and the minister and kirk on our behalf; production of a lovely order of service and delightful floral arrangements. Thank you to you and your staff for your contribution to happy memories in the midst of the sadness of loss.
