Neil has arranged two funerals for our family over the past couple of years. The most recent one was my Mother-in-law's funeral in January 2024. In both instances we were impressed with the care, respect, friendliness and attention to detail shown by him and the George Scott Team. No request was too demanding and the whole process, although initially daunting, was thoroughly explained to us by Neil. He listened attentively and with real empathy to our wishes. As a consequence we immediately trusted Neil, felt relaxed, at ease and reassured that we would receive an exemplary service. Neil provided informed advice where appropriate and helped us to arrive at a funeral package that was exactly right for us. On the occasions when I was uncertain of procedures etc. I spoke to both Andrea and Eden who were both able to answer my questions fully in plain English. It was refreshing to receive answers that were jargon-free! Any death of a loved one is a traumatic event but Neil's approach, on both occasions, has been one of care, patience, compassion, understanding and quiet efficiency. This enabled us to honour the wishes of our loved ones and realise a fitting 'celebration' of their lives. The smoothness of the whole experience was reassuring and comforting to my wife and the family at an obviously emotional time. I apologise if this seems like an overly long review but the fact that we have used George Scott Funeral Services on two occasions is, I believe, testament to our confidence in Neil's professionalism as a Funeral Director and George Scott as a caring, family run business.

At what was a very difficult time, the support and professionalism of George Scott significantly eased a heavy emotional burden. From the moment we contacted them, Andrea's attentiveness helped us during the decision-making process whilst Neil's approach to handling all aspects of the funeral was both respectful and compassionate. We're sincerely grateful to the entire team for their service.

Words can’t even express the thanks I have for you guys. Neil your such a kind, caring and gentle man and you made sure everything regarding our Dads funeral was what we wanted. We never had to do this before so it was such a daunting devastating time for us, but you put our minds at ease all the way, even at the funeral you were always sure to check in on all the family. Especially when I had a panic attack whilst getting into the car, thank you for your understanding and patience towards me. Thank you also for looking after our Dad whilst he was in your care. He had such a special and perfect day. Kind regards, Sally (Richard Capper’s youngest Daughter) x

I'd like to say a big thank you to all the amazing people working in George Scott's Funeral Services. They were organizing my husband's funeral and they helped me with all the formalities, documents and obviously with the beautiful and peaceful ceremony. They have a lot of emphaty, understanding and they are very professional. Losing someone very close and loved is a devastating experience, but they helped me to go through it. Thank you very much.

Neil, we cannot thank you, Eden and your team enough for being there for us over the past few weeks. From the minute you both walked into dads house after mum passed away you really did put us at ease and from start to finish you were so very personable and kind it made a very difficult time that little bit easier and helped to give mum the send off she deserved. A five star rating without a doubt and a heartfelt thanks from us both. We wish you all the very best for the future.

Neil and his team are amazing we held the celebration of my Dads life today and they took care of all the details just as they did with my Mum 12 years ago. Nothing is too much trouble and they are real professionals and we can’t recommend them highly enough.
