About us

Bespoke Civil Ceremonies is the leading Civil Funeral Ceremony company in Scotland and was established by Neil Dorward in 2005. We have grown as a company by maintaining high standards and by word of mouth reputation.

We are consistently called the ‘best’ in the business by families and Funeral Directors.

Neil Dorward is one of the most experienced and longest serving Funeral Celebrants in the UK and is the only person in the UK to have been awarded a Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy with High Distinction. He has a reputation that is second to none and he will help you create the service that is right for you.

In the last 12 years, we have established a first class reputation for delivering passionate funeral ceremonies that leave people feeling ‘that was the best funeral I have ever been at’. We give families the exact funeral service they want for their loved ones. We are consistently rated as the best in the business and have the highest standards in the whole of Scotland.

We are positively different because only Civil Funeral can tailor make a funeral according to your needs wishes and desires and only civil funerals offer you the choice of saying;

“we wish our funeral ceremony to be religious, semi religious or non religious”.
