James Cockburn Funeral Directors

996 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 3DU

Founded in 1932 by the late James Turnbull Cockburn, the company was one of thirteen Independent Funeral Directors in the Historical Burgh of Govan. Today we are the only Independent Family Owned Funeral Directors still operating in this area.

Our comfortable modern funeral home in Govan is designed to allow clients to meet with the funeral director to discuss funeral arrangements for their loved one in complete privacy; our premises are fully accessible to the disabled and we offer a twenty four hour telephone service seven days a week.

We are pleased to recommend “Independent Way” funeral plans by “Golden Charter”, the UK’s leading funeral plan provider. A prepaid funeral plan gives you the peace of mind that when the time comes for your funeral to take place, your loved ones will not have the additional burden of arranging and paying for your funeral – all the arrangements are specified by yourself and the funeral plan is specifically tailored to suit your own exact requirements.

For more information, or advice on prepaid funeral planning, please contact our funeral director who will be happy to discuss your requirements either in our offices or in the comfort of your own home.
