About Us

    About Sim & Son Funeral Directors

    Sim & Son Funeral Directors have been serving the local communities of Glasgow and the surrounding areas since 2003.

    In January 2017 we reinvested in our business and purchased the former Temple Anniesland Police Station. We completely refurbished these premises based at, 273 Bearsden Rd, Anniesland and restored the building to its former glory.

    Our funeral home is stylish, contemporary and very welcoming. We offer pristine, comfortable and tranquil reception rooms for our bereaved families. Our facilities also include on-site parking, a small service room, chapel of rest, and so much more.

    The teams at our Glasgow funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one.

    We also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
