Dear Mr Rhind,
Please convey my appreciation to all those involved in the arrangements for the funeral of my partner. Special thanks please to Iain, who was a huge help and comfort to me at a very difficult time and also to Shirley for organising all the typing and printing. The funeral service was just as it should have been, thanks in large part to you and your staff. The Craigmonie Hotel was excellent and the flowers from Victoriana were beautiful. Many thanks again.
Many thanks for all your help and advice at a difficult time.
Dear Alasdair, I am writing to thank you for your attentive, professional and experienced services which ensured that appropriate arrangements were in place throughout.
I greatly appreciate your willingness to accept the additional responsibilities involved in organising a funeral outwith your usual geographic area. My thanks also for your guidance and advice, and, with Shirley, your assisting my cousins in Canada to have a floral tribute delivered to the church. I warmly commend your team and, in particular, Iain Macleay whose oversight of, and conduct at, the funeral was exemplary. Thank you all.
Dear Alasdair, Thank you for your services regarding my husband's funeral on the 20th march. I appreciated our many stops at your office and phone calls to help.
I would like to thank you for providing such a caring efficient and professional service enabling everything to go seamlessly which took so much pressure off the family.
Dear Alasdair & Shirley, Just a quick wee note to say thank you both, for all your help and kindness in making mum's funeral as stress free as possible - there were no hitches. Thank you. With Best Wishes.
Thank you to all your team for your sympathy, professionalism and care in the days before and on the day of the funeral.
On behalf of the whole family I would like to offer our sincere thanks to you and your staff. At such a difficult time the professional and caring manner in which you all carried out your service was a great comfort and assistance.
Thank you so much for all you did for me over the past weeks. You were so kind, thoughtful and considerate and certainly made a difficult time much easier. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of your team.
I really don't know how one goes about thanking you all for your great care and attention. Alasdair, you were my rock in every situation and I give thanks for you. To you all for your attention to detail, your professionalism and your response to my needs, I am most grateful.
I have to say I really appreciated the respect you gave, and for walking in front of the hearse when we left our house. I don't think I can find the words to express my appreciation of the respect shown. I can only say thank you so much.
I want to thank you on behalf of all the family for the arrangements which were perfect. The ceremony was dignified but not downhearted, and the wake afterwards was lovely. Although it was a sad occasion, we exchanged fond memories and raised many a glass to my dad. He would have very much approved.
I would like to say a big thank you for all the kind attention you gave to my late mother and her mourners at The Meadows. Several people have contacted me to say that you and your team were respectful and very considerate. I was sad when my mother passed away and I can assure you that being unable to travel and arrange her funeral your work and professionalism has made me very glad that I knew of you.
Thank You for all your help, which was very much appreciated.
Thank, you, Jack and all your team for the beautiful funeral you arranged for my step mother. Your firm certainly did her proud for which myself and our family are very grateful.
Dear Alasdair and your Team, The Family would like to thank you most sincerely for your compassion, professionalism, care and support to the family while attending to the funeral arrangements and on the day. It was very much appreciated.

Thank you for your assistance and for speaking for Barry at The Service.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you and your colleagues for the kindness and consideration shown to me and my family at a difficult time for us. Your attention to detail was much appreciated.
Here I am 5 weeks later on and it is you that I give all the thanks that I have come to this point. My family and I will always hold you in our hearts as a significant person raised up for us at this time. Your calm and gentle management of the cremation and thanksgiving service carried a huge burden for us and allowed us to participate, knowing all was in your effiicient hands. On reflection it was all very honouring to God and to our beloved and though we still find ourselves engulfed in sadness over our loss, we have a real sense of peace about how it was all conducted. I can't thank you enough for making this possible.

Thank you so much for the support and kindness you gave to my sister and me before and during the funeral of our father .
I smile each time I remember you helping to dish out sausage rolls and cream scones, Alasdair! it gave it all a very human touch.

Dear Mr Rhind,
Will you please accept for yourself and all your staff my sincere and heartfelt thanks for the way that you have dealt with me whilst making the funeral arrangements for my Dad. From the very first telephone call and all the way through you have been kind, thoughtful and compassionate. The way that you have dealt with the extra concerns for my mother has really made a difficult job easier. I am only sorry that the 18 hour coach trip was impossible for me to do as I would much prefer to thank you all in person. I wish you and your family and staff all the very best for the future.
I would like to thank you again for such a well organised funeral day. You and your staff are so very professional in your work but also kind and extremely sensitive. I will be in touch later about a memorial stone and would welcome your advice about it.
Thanks to yourself and staff for impeccable service rendered at every stage. The family are grateful.
Thank you so much for arranging Grandma's funeral so very well. It was an excellent day despite the circumstances, and she would have been delighted with the send off! Your (and your assistants') hard work was invaluable and we are all so grateful to you for your care, consideration and efficiency - spot on! Please pass my thanks to the others and know that should any of the rest of us require funeral services (hopefully not for a while yet!) we'll no doubt be in touch.
Many Thanks again.
A very special thank you!

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you carried out with the funeral arrangements, because of your professionalism and attention to detail everything ran smoothly, not only at the Crematorium but after. We could not have been happier with the services you provided and are eternally grateful.
Just to say "Thank You" for all the care, patience and comforting you and your son gave. Your arrangements were so comforting and respectful.
