At Desmond Maguire Funeral Directors we pride ourselves on our high standard of personal care and attention to detail. All our staff are fully trained in all aspects of funeral service so that families in their time of need can feel at ease and comfortable with all funeral arrangements. Our company policy is that the member of staff who makes the funeral arrangements will be in sole charge of overseeing the funeral ensuring that the all details are adhered to faultlessly.

All our funeral directors are dressed impeccably with top hats and frock coats. We pace away all funeral corteges from the family home, Churches and our funeral homes. Our funeral homes are furnished to a high standard with a tasteful blend of modern and traditional. We have reception areas, private arrangement offices and chapels of rest and service rooms in all our funeral homes. Our funeral homes are ideally located to serve the local community.

We are members of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.( S.A.I.F.)

When Desmond Maguire started washing funeral cars at 15 years old, it didn’t take him long to notice how important a good funeral could be for a grieving family. Inspired to help those in need, Desmond took a job as a funeral service operative when he finished school. He gradually worked his way through the ranks to become a funeral director and in June 2006, he decided to open his own funeral home, aiming to deliver the very best funeral care.
A funeral is such a personal thing, and there are so many complex emotions to be given due attention, that to be chosen so often is a real honour and a privilege. It’s a constant source of pride and humility for Desmond that so many families entrust their funerals into his company’s care. 

Funeral Directors Bothwell

Desmond Maguire Funeral Directors are local to Bothwell, independent, and family-run. When a loved one dies, our family is here to help your family through the journey ahead.

As Funeral Directors, we have over 15 years of experience. Longer in the industry. We know that in times of bereavement, another business is not what you need. A friendly professional funeral service to guide you through the obligations ahead is what we provide.
Tailored Funeral Plans

The funeral services we help arrange are tailored to the unique requirements of the person to be commemorated. We cater to a few styles of funerals. Simple funerals, traditional, and eco-friendly.

A simple funeral could be described as a no-frills traditional funeral service. It includes all of the essentials for a traditional funeral without any extras such as a limousine to transport your family to the service.

Our traditional funeral service includes a wood veneer coffin, one limousine, use of the viewing room at our funeral home, and a longer funeral service.

Eco-friendly funerals use biodegradable caskets. Special arrangements can be made for a green funeral with no embalming. Depending on the site of committal, memorials may be restricted to leave no trace on the land, whereas some burial sites permit a tree or other natural resource to be planted as a memorial.

Each of our funeral plans can be tailored to suit the life, values, and beliefs of the deceased and their families wishes. Our Funeral Directors will take the time to understand the life of the person to be commemorated and advise on all aspects of funeral provision to help you make informed choices.
