John Rhind Funeral Directors – Continuing a family tradition since 1881.

COVID-19 has changed the way we live, work and play. We are all in this together.
What hasn’t changed is our steadfast commitment to honouring your loved ones, respectfully and with dignity. As an essential service we will continue to deliver professional services to be proud of.
We are well prepared, and have put in place new ways of working that will protect our staff and your family. Our customer service and hygienic standards are of the highest standard. We won’t compromise on this.
We may not be able to bring communities physically together for a Funeral Service, however, we can bring you all together via our web stream facilities and other modes of technology.
Our team is empathic, innovative and are there for you. Please talk to us.
