I would highly recommend Darren and his team who provided myself and my daughter with the most professional and caring service after losing my husband Steve at the beginning of September 2018. He took on board our wishes for Steve's funeral and provided what can only be described as an excellent service. When the need arises I will definitely use Darren and his team again. They treated my husband with the utmost respect whilst he was in their care. A first class funeral director.

I really cannot praise Darren MacDonald's work enough. From our first conversation on the phone I knew I was working with a man who would judge the tone exactly right, who would be sensitive as well as efficient, patient, thoughtful, kind and accurate. His eye for detail is constantly reassuring and everything was done with quiet care and forethought. On the day Darren and his men came not only to the crematorium but also to the thanksgiving service afterwards and organised orders of service and much else with generous attention. Darren was recommended to me as a man who would go the extra mile. He certainly did, making the whole process clear and dignified but also calm and full of the joyful parting for which we had hoped. I would recommend Darren MacDonald without any hesitation at all.

Darren was recommended to us and at our initial visit put us at ease straightaway. He listened carefully to all our thoughts and was very caring and supportive. Darren explained the whole process to us in a sensitive and clear manner and reassured us that we could approach him anytime with any queries or concerns we had.  He was courteous and compassionate and always returned calls and emails if he was unavailable in person. On the day of the funeral Darren and his team looked after us all. He supported the whole family and our friends in a professional and respectful manner. Darren took care of everything and truly held our hands every step of the way. We feel that Darren MacDonald offers a highly professional, individual and personal service and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
