Funeral Planning Ayrshire
At Wilson and Drury we know how difficult it is when a loved one dies. A funeral has to be perfect to send our loved ones off in a way they deserve. We provide bespoke funerals across Ayrshire and beyond.
Funerals generally follow traditional patterns but we can and will change ceremony details when the client requests it.

Registering a death
A medical professional will issue you with a Medical Certificate (form 11).
The Next Of Kin or Applicant must register the death within 8 days at a Registry Office anywhere in Scotland, some offices may wish you to make an appointment.
The person registering the death will be asked for information about the deceased:
- The date and place of death
- The full name and usual address (and maiden name if applicable)
- The date and place of birth
- The occupation
- The full name and usual address of the Next Of Kin / Applicant
Death certificates are needed for closing bank accounts and making claims on insurance policies etc...
The Registrar will give you the white document (form 14) required by Wilson and Drury for Burial or Cremation. Abbreviated Death Certificates are issued free of charge and if you require a full Death Certificate there is a charge, the current fee is £10 per document copy.
