Callander, Funeral Parlour Renovations
We are currently carrying out renovations to our funeral parlour in Callander. We are putting in a new mortuary facilities along with new disabled access toilet and will be modernising the existing décor.
Photos will be added when the renovation work is complete.
Andrew Anderson & Sons, Funeral Directors Callander, are holding a Charity Day on Saturday 23rd May 2015 to raise funds for the Chloe McIntyre Fund within Yorkhill Children’s Charity in memory of Chloe McIntyre.
The aim of the fund is to build a sensory room and roof top garden within the new Yorkhill Hospital. The rooms will be named after Chloe and will be opened summer this year. The fund is currently at £54,000 which is just amazing!
Chloe was born with a heart condition called Truncas Arteriosis and she spent majority of her life in Yorkhill Hospital and in particular in the Cardiac Ward 5a and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. She underwent successful open heart surgery at 4 weeks old but due to certain complications was placed on an ECMO (life support) machine after the surgery and sadly passed away at six weeks and two days old. There is so many children in Yorkhill fighting for their life’s so raising money helps these children have a better time in hospital.
We currently have availability for team of 4 which is priced at £140 per team (£35pp) and that includes Tea/Coffee & bacon Roll, 18 holes of Texas Scramble golf, 2 course meal in the Clubhouse, raffle & prize-giving. To enter a team and support the Chloe McIntyre Fund within Yorkhill Hospital please call Callander Golf Club – 01877 330975.

Eco green funerals
For an eco green funeral you have the option of a woodlands burial. The local woodlands cemetery in Stirling council is in Killearn.
What is a woodland burial?
A woodland burial is the ideal choice for those seeking somewhere more natural and beautiful to hold a funeral and remember a loved one.
A woodland burial ground provides a natural alternative to a traditional cemetery.
Instead of a traditional headstone, graves are marked by the planting of a memorial tree. There is a focus on preserving the natural beauty of the woodland environment and encouraging native wildlife and flowers.
