About

Bereavement support and advice in Anniesland and Bearsden

Sim & Son was established in 2003 by Steven, who was previously employed by both family and internationally owned Funeral Directing businesses in Glasgow where he spent 15 years as a driver/bearer, funeral director and funeral manager, learning all aspects of the profession.

Our company history

In September 2003, Steven launched his own company and opened his first funeral home on Knightswood Road. The initial 4 years involved plenty of hard work and the provision of a 24 hour on call service as a sole funeral director, however, through this effort, came the instant success and the business was in the position of requiring another member to help within the company.

As the company grew, families would employ our services from all areas across Glasgow through recommendations from their own families and friends and the strong reputation that the company had built (we use minimal advertising as recommendations from our previous clients have played a massive part in our success). In particular, many families from Bearsden would contact us in times of bereavement and it was decided to open a 2nd Funeral Home on Drymen Road. The Bearsden Funeral Home was opened in the summer of 2008, at 78 - 80 Drymen Road, opposite the railway station and is operated by local funeral arranger, Susan Chisholm, who brought 20 years of experience between family and internationally owned funeral directing companies to Sim & Son.

With the utmost respect, compassion and honesty we have for our families, we feel honoured that families entrust their loved ones into our care. We have a collective experience of about 50 years in the funeral trade and have the knowledge to give families the guidance and care that they deserve to fulfil their wishes for their loved ones.

We believe that being an independent funeral director offers our clients the support, choice, value and dignity they deserve.

“We want to thank you for the care and professionalism that you showed when arranging and conducting my mother’s funeral on 24th March. Your drivers were courteous and polite, the flowers were beautiful, the cars immaculate, all arrangements were according to plan and the entire process was managed and conducted in a kind and sympathetic manner. The Beardmore was a highly suitable location for the subsequent wake: it was clean and tidy, the food was good, and the service discreet. On such a sad occasion we found your organisation and professionalism both reassuring and comforting. Thank you again. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sim & Son to others.” - Mr. W
