Funerals have changed so much in recent days, here is an update from Tim Purves.

The most important thing is that we’re still here for you when you need us most – you just need to call us.

Posted by William Purves Funeral Directors on Friday, 3 April 2020

For bereaved families in the Lothian, Fife or Borders areas needing to arrange a funeral, we’re here to help.

Current Government guidance has limited attendees to immediate family; and some crematoria or cemeteries will be setting specific limits. Recognising the impact this has on families, we offer two distinct services:

  • Family viewing of a coffin in our premises in line with social distancing guidelines in order to say goodbye
  • Embalming in order to allow families, who are self isolating, a chance to say goodbye when they are ready

We’re fully committed to supporting families, especially during this unprecedented time. Our services are available 24/7 every day of the week. And whilst arranging has moved to phone or video, where essential paperwork is required, we can collect and return by arrangement.

Let our family help yours when you need it the most.
