We are here to listen
Mark Watson has been a part of William Watson Funeral Directors since 1989. Founded by Marks father and mother, our purpose built premises have been in their current location since 1982 with the familys experience as directors stretching back to the early 1970s. This means we understand the local area, its people and its customs. But this is not just about William Watson.
A successful funeral director knows that it is vital to reflect the personality and character of the deceased and this requires time to make arrangements and answer questions.
Building a relationship with a family is central to what we do. Whether you intend to have a simple farewell or a lavish send-off, youll need round-the-clock support. As an independent funeral director we are deeply committed to our community and understand the value of trust. This means offering a long-term commitment to Moray. Its a trust we have earned over time through ensuring the highest standards and taking the greatest pride in our work.
Its in the interests of William Watson to get the job done smoothly and correctly.
Honesty & transparency
Maintaining the trust of families means offering our services in a completely open manner. The vehicles you see on the website are the vehicles youll use on the day. The price of additional items wont be racked-up by commission. Well account for any expense in a full and transparent fashion, offering only what is needed, sought or requested. We see no shame in asking for the cheapest option available, but if you intend to arrange a more lavish celebration were committed to providing one that has your budget as well as your needs in mind. William Watson are driven by the needs of families not by sales.
William Watson offer round the clock support for bereaved families
We do not sell any third party pre paid funeral plans. Instead we are more comfortable giving you honest, commission free advice which is accurate for your needs. We are happier if you and your family are in control of your own finances. If the needs are appropriate, we can arrange a pre payment for you or a relative.
Family-owned and run
When we are fulfilling the wishes of a family we are often satisfying the needs of our friends and neighbours. These are family-owned premises, family-owned vehicles and like anything that involves the family, the business is valued and maintained with the greatest of pride. We are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office. We are flexible, responsive and deeply committed to the community and the families we serve.
We think its important that you know who youre speaking to. This is something you dont really get when dealing with the branch of a sprawling, major franchise. When you enlist the services of William Watson, youll have a dedicated team of professionals ready to advise and assist on a round-the-clock basis. Youll also have a business that has invested in your community, with a reputation that goes back years.
We see no shame in asking for the cheapest option available, but if you intend to arrange a more lavish celebration we’re committed to providing one that has your budget as well as your needs in mind. William Watson are devoted to families, not profits, providing the best possible send-off, at the best possible price.
