About us > Our team

Over the years our team at Thomas Cuthell and Sons has grown considerably. We now have a team of four funeral directors, five assistant funeral directors, an operations manager, four part time chauffeurs, ten administration staff, a cleaner and gardener. Two of the assistant funeral directors also work in our in-house memorial department and we have a full time embalmer who ensures that the deceased is cared for to the highest possible standard.


Bo’ness is where our fleet is garaged and therefore where our operational staff start their day. This dedicated team move between our four funeral homes as and when required.

In Bo’ness we have an office and a waiting area where our administrative staff can assist with any funeral or memorial related enquiries.
