Dingwall Doors Open Day

To celebrate a decade since our funeral home opened in Lovat House in Dingwall, we will be holding our very first Ross-shire Doors Open Day on Friday 18th August 2023, and we would love for you to pop in for a tour, a chat, or just a cuppa and some baking, any time between 10am – 3pm.

Our friendly team will be on hand to offer small group ‘behind the scenes’ tours, giving you the opportunity to see the areas of our business that are usually closed to the public, the mortuary and embalming suite.

We’ll also be opening the doors of our resting room, and our full range of coffins and ashes caskets will be on display. Our smart fleet of silver limousines and hearses will be parked up front, and our own in-house stonemason will be set up in our memorial garden, demonstrating some of the skills required to engrave a memorial stone.

Staff will be on hand to ask any questions you may have.

Although it is unusual for a funeral director to join in with ‘Doors Open’ schemes, and we believe we are the first in the Highlands to do so, most of the people who have come along to similar events we have held in Inverness over the years said it has left them feeling very reassured.

Our main aim is to help people understand exactly what happens between someone coming into our care and the funeral happening.

We hope that coming along on 18th August will help people to start a conversation with their own families about what they would like their funerals to be like; whether they’d choose to be cremated or buried, what sort of celebrant or music they’d like, and what kind of coffin they would prefer.

While the funeral home will still be operational during the Doors Open Day, with people in our care, we are keen to stress that the privacy and dignity of the deceased will always be preserved.

As always at John Fraser & Son, we follow the ethos of 'our family looking after your family’. Every single thing we do respects and preserves the dignity of the deceased, and on our Open Day that will be no different. We pride ourselves in helping families to create the funeral that best meets their own needs, reflects the personality, and wishes of the deceased, yet maintains the respect and dignity of the occasion.

We hope you will be able to join us on 18th August, but if that date doesn’t suit you, and you would like to chat with one of our team at a time that is more convenient, please give us a call on 01349 808666 and we’ll make an appointment.

And remember, if you need us, that number will be answered 24/7.
