Over £1m invested in Paisley funeral services
A Paisley funeral director has invested over £1million in a new fleet of funeral vehicles and refurbishment of the funeral home.
The Co-operative Funeralcare on Lady Lane has taken delivery of two new black Mercedes hearses and three black Mercedes limousines. Investment of £500,000 has been made in the vehicles, which feature the latest design in terms of comfort, spaciousness, visibility and technology.
A further £600,000 has been ploughed into refurbishment of the funeral home which has three arranging rooms, one service room capable of seating 70 people and five rest rooms. There is also a large car park.
Staff are holding an Open Day on Saturday, May 12th from 11am to 2pm when visitors will be able to look around the new home and also ask any questions they may have about funerals or take the chance to win a limo with driver for the day.
A range of coffins and of funeral vehicles including a horse-drawn hearse, a motorbike hearse and the new vehicles will be on display to demonstrate how people can personalise funerals to their individual tastes.
Manager Graeme Andrews said: “Families want their loved ones to have the best send-off they possibly can and the vehicles used are an important part of making that happen.
“Along with our beautiful new funeral homes this investment continues our commitment to supply the very best quality of service and care to everyone we serve.”
The vehicles will also be used by The Co-operative Funeralcare’s other two funeral homes at Church Street in Johnstone and Paisley Road in Barrhead.
