      A local, independent firm

Mark Shaw Funeral Services is a local, independently owned funeral directors serving Aberdeen City and North East Scotland. Opened in 2004 by Mark Shaw, the firm's reputation has grown steadily by providing the highest levels of service to the bereaved. Our aim is to help make each funeral special for you, your family and friends. A funeral should be a unique tribute to the life of the person who has died, while providing support and comfort to all relatives and friends. For some families, this will mean following traditions.  For others, a more contemporary funeral arrangement is suitable and we are happy to discuss all options for the funeral.


Every funeral, however modest or elaborate, will be directed with our fullest attention to detail from the time of your first call, until after the ceremony. We will give all the flexibility and support required by the family. We have all the relevant contacts with local authorities, churches, clergy, humanists, hospitals, procurators fiscal, doctors, police, hotels, florists, AV suppliers and other agencies that may be involved at a time of bereavement and we will liaise with them on your behalf. We can assure you that you will be treated with the utmost care, consideration and confidentiality.

Many people wish to ensure that a funeral plan is already set up in the event of their own death. Having a pre-paid funeral plan

in place saves your family and friends from having to make difficult decisions on your behalf about your funeral and your wishes.


Having twice been recognised as Regional Funeral Planner of the Year by Golden Charter in 2007 & 2012, we are one of the leading funeral planners in the North East. As such we have the privilege of helping bereaved families in and around Aberdeen.
