We have five Funeral Directors at Clydebank Co-operative Society, with a great wealth of knowledge and experience between them. They jointly have over a 100 years’ service to the Society and are supported by a caring and professional team of Funeral Service Operatives and Administrative Assistants, so you can rest assured you and your loved ones are in safe and capable hands.

Allow me to introduce you to our Funeral Directing staff:

Funeral Directors


Alex Blair, has been helping bereaved families in the community for over 38 years, he told me   “my role as a Funeral Director is not a job as such, it’s more a vocation”.   When he is not working, Alex can often been found representing the company at events and presentations.  He is often affectionately referred to by his families as “a very nice man”


Jim Gourlay, has over 40 years of service to the Society,  Jim said “I pride myself in my dedication to providing a personal, caring service to the families I work with and my extensive experience helps me to offer the best possible advice and guidance”. 



Scott Milton Dip.FA&A has gained a  Diploma in Funeral Arranging and Administration and is our youngest Funeral Director, he enjoys working closely with families and helping them at this difficult time, his personal motto is “treat everyone’s loved one as though they are my own”.

We take pride in the fact that all of our Funeral Directors live locally and they have built good relationships not only with our families they serve but with people they work with such as Clergy, Florists and Caterers.

“Clydebank Co-operative Funeral Directors, always here for you in your time of need”
