About us

About Us

Independent & Family Run

We are an independent, family owned and run funeral director based in Alness and throughout the Ross-shire area in the Scotland Highlands. Established in 2005.

Mairi started the company, on her own initially, to provide a caring, sensitive service to the community she has lived in all her life.

As the company has grown, so has the workforce. Mairi and her son David are both company directors.

Grant Geddes, Sarah Crow, Suzee McClenaghan and Martin Geddes are Funeral Directors, employed to look after families and their loved ones from that first difficult phone call and to make all funeral arrangements.

Lesley Mackay looks after our Alness office, while Lisa Hay looks after Muir of Ord. We also have an experienced team of assistants who are invaluable to us, who assist us in all our day to day duties.

In 2011 we acquired D.J. MacLennan & Son, Muir of Ord and Mackay & Macaskill, Dornoch which means we now provide funeral services throughout the Highlands and  beyond.

We feel very proud to be able to look after your loved one with respect and dignity, and we are dedicated to providing the highest level of service.


We understand that spending time with a person after they have died can be very important to family and friends but not everybody wishes to do this. We have peaceful visiting rooms in Alness and Muir of Ord to be used if you wish. You can personally place any personal items with the person that has died or ask us to do this on your behalf.
