Alan Saunderson was brought up in Kilbirnie before moving to Largs 35 years ago.

After a career in engineering, Alan began working for the Church of Scotland and, for many years, was the Clerk to Ardrossan Presbytery. In that role he had administrative responsibility for 28 congregations.

Alan has presented television programmes for BBC Scotland and Radio Scotland together with commercial broadcasting at Westsound Radio in Ayrshire. 

Alan also undertakes voice-over work for TV and radio commercials and is a much sought after speaker for Burns’ Suppers and other events.

Alan has over 15 years' experience conducting funeral services and he will work with your family to provide a full religious, semi-religious or non-religious service that will be a fitting tribute to your loved one.


Alan will help make one of the most difficult days of your family’s lives a bit easier with an appropriate memorial service for your loved one.

While anyone may conduct a funeral service, this is an area where Alan’s experience, professionalism and personal empathy can make the difference between a beautiful moving service or one which leaves the family feeling disappointed.

Unlike a secular ceremony, hymns, scripture readings and prayers can be included. Also, favourite music can be played.


If you would like family and friends to take part (to read a poem or deliver a eulogy) this can also be accommodated.

The ceremony could take place entirely at the cemetery or crematorium, or it could begin at another location, for example, your home or the Funeral Director's service room.

The service may take place at the Funeral Director's service room, crematorium chapel, graveside or, as is becoming more popular, a hotel or community hall.


The funeral outline will be discussed and settled upon when Alan visits your home. There will be deep, ongoing and thorough communication with your family. Alan will also provide you with a draft tribute of the eulogy a few days before the service to ensure that all information is accurate.
