Respectful Funeral Service

We want to make a difference to the lives of our residents and provide our support during the most difficult times.

We believe everyone should have access to support which helps to provide a respectful and dignified funeral service, while keeping the financial costs to a minimum.

This is why we have worked closely with local funeral directors to create a Respectful Funeral Service package, which is dignified, professional and affordable.

Our partners are offering a tailored funeral package with savings of up to 63% on the Scottish average cost for funeral directors services of £2839 (2018).

What is included in the package?

  • collection of the deceased from within Renfrewshire or any NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde property
  • care and preparation of the deceased
  • a choice of coffin ranging from light or dark wood effect, or environmental
  • a place of rest and viewing facilities
  • a hearse and one family car
  • arrangements on the day of the funeral

Additional services available include:

  • recovery of the deceased from outwith Renfrewshire
  • a minister, priest or celebrant
  • an additional family car
  • an additional two family cars
  • coffin upgrade
  • embalming
  • order of service
