When a loved one passes away there are many aspects of a funeral that a family will have to address. We offer a completely individual service and can assist and advise you every step of the way. Based in Motherwell, we offer an outstanding range of services to people all over Lanarkshire and beyond.
We are here to help you through this difficult and traumatic time, offering the support and advice you need at any time, day or night.
We can arrange the funeral in the comfort of your own home or at the office here at our funeral home.
We will liaise on your behalf with all 3rd parties, e.g. clergy, crematorium, cemeteries, florists and newspapers.
Chapel of Rest
Our Chapel is available without charge (by appointment) during office hours. This enables you to say your own private farewell in tranquil surroundings.
Coffins and Cremation Urns
We stock a range of coffins which offer choice and affordability. Cremation urns are also available.
Flowers are a very personal part of any funeral. Some families may find solace in visiting the florist themselves, alternatively we can arrange flowers on your behalf.
Order of Service
This can be as simple or elaborate as you wish depending on individual requirements. We are here to guide and advise you of the available options.
We operate with a modern Mercedes fleet. Our vehicles are well maintained. We can also arrange specialist transport including a vintage hearse or horse and cart. We can also offer mini bus hire.
There are many options for venues and we can guide and help you make the correct decision with regard to budget, expected numbers etc… We have come into contact with many caterers over the years and will only recommend one company who provide a consistently high standard of both service and food. You can of course choose any caterer you like.
We understand in times of hardship finances may not be available. We can offer advice regarding DSS claims and also offer a basic funeral package.
After learning my brother had died I quickly boarded a plane from Kansas City to Scotland. After locating my brother, William O'Mara was recommended to me.
On meeting Mr O'Mara he was friendly, compassionate, and thoughtful in which was obviously a very difficult time.
Sensitive to my family's needs, Mr O'Mara quickly visited our home and diligently explained what he could do. Easy going and straight forward, Mr O'Mara's communication was excellent.
Soon we had a funeral plan in place. William also had to liaise with the police since my brother was a policeman and was to be cremated with full police honours. This he tirelessly did.
Everything that was needed, Mr O'Mara expertly guided me through the entire process and kept in constant communication with me which was greatly appreciated.
I am also indebted to his expert staff, all of whom combined to give my brother the send off he deserved.
Wholeheartedly, I recommend William O'Mara & Sons. So much so, I consider them family too.
