Our caring and dedicated members of staff are highly trained and exercise discretion and sensitivity at all times.

David McGowan, CEO and founder of the company as it is now known, has always been a leader in the profession, constantly seeking out ways of improving the services provided to those who are bereaved, while honouring the dignity of the deceased.

Our main ethos is to respect the uniqueness of each deceased person.

Funeral plan for your needs

With our experience and knowledge, we are able to advise you on the funeral plan best suited to your needs, and can help you to keep unnecessary costs to a minimum when planning a funeral.

We are familiar with the procedures for Cremation, Post Mortem, and Repatriation, and can help with death registration and applications for death grants.

We also provide hygienic treatment, with a focus on being true to how the deceased person liked to appear for special occasions during his/ her lifetime.

We maintain high standards within our facilities, with stylish, comfortable rooms, to make all visitors feel at home.

Our modern vehicles are of the highest quality, and are maintained to a very high standard.

We facilitate memorial services, whether denominational or non-denominational. We understand that families and close friends of the deceased often wish to spend private time in the company of the deceased. We are committed to ensuring that this important time goes undisturbed.

Funeral Arrangements

When the time comes to arrange a funeral of a loved one, having complete faith in your chosen Funeral Director to arrange the proceedings in a manner that is respectful to the deceased and the bereaved family is of great benefit in assisting in the initial stages of grief.


We consider the most essential aspect of a Funeral Directors service to a bereaved family is providing them with an opportunity to view their loved one in a manner that is dignified and respectful. In order for this to occur although not a requirement, we would recommend that the deceased is hygienically treated.

Death Registration

As Funeral Directors we can assist you in the registration of the death of a loved one. However, should you wish to do this yourself the following information should assist you.

Excellent very clear outline

Ruth Fitzgerald

Could not fault the care and attention everyone gave my family over the two days our father, Arthur Wills, was buried. Their care and attention to detail was superb. We never felt rushed at any time despite a very late evening removal to our church. There was even a chair provided for our mother at the graveside on the day of the burial. Not once, did we feel they were simply going through the motions. All staff were professional, respectful and kind. Sincere thanks for this beautiful service at a very difficult time.
