What To Do On Death

Little's Funeral Service will assist you every step of the way. Please call us 24 hours a day on 0141 883 2114.

Register the death

First thing to do is register the death. We will provide you with full details of how to do this, and from then on you can rely on us to handle all the arrangements on your behalf.

Does the deceased have a pre-paid funeral plan?

If the deceased has pre-paid funeral plan with Little's, we will finalise arrangements with you according to their wishes.

Burial or cremation?

Once the decision has been made on the type of funeral, we will coordinate with the representative who is conducting the funeral service to ensure we can organise a time and date that is convenient to you both.

Funeral notice

Once the time and date or the service has been established, we will help you by placing a funeral notice in the local newspaper advising people of the service details.


We will then consult with you and organise a catering venue for after the funeral service has taken place. Details regarding numbers and catering choices must be known by the venue in advance, so it's important that everything is organised at an early stage.


Our suggested florist is part of Interflora and we can organise the floral tributes of your choice. You can make your choices from the brochures we have at our parlours or by looking at the Interflora website.

Choosing a coffin

The final stages of the arrangements will then be made, including choosing a coffin in which your loved one will rest, from our wide choice of traditional and specialised coffins.

We will also consult you on whether you want to give the opportunity for people to pay their last respects, whether at our parlour or at your home.


Little's will provide you with a full written estimate of known costs incurred during the funeral arrangments. We will explain each charge to you and how the cost has been calculated, and all estimated costs that are directly controlled by us are guaranteed.

After the funeral

Once the funeral is over, we will assist you by placing an acknowledgement notice in the newspaper thanking your family and friends, the spokesperson who conducted the service, or perhaps the team who cared for your loved one during their illness.
