A century of service to the community
T&A Fyfe, who marked their centenary in 2012, are an independent and family-owned funeral business in Hamilton.
Their four generations of knowledge and experience can be relied upon during an emotional and stressful time in people’s lives.
T&A Fyfe company director Lesley Blair said: “We have been in Hamilton a long time and are trusted by the community.
“People turn to us at a difficult time and can rely on a service which is second to none.
“After all those years we are still independent and family-owned and that matters a lot to us and to the community.”
T&A Fyfe provide all the information and, most importantly, the time to assess, discuss and decide your needs, either at your home or at their private offices.
Professionally-trained funeral directors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year.
Company director Robert Hinshelwood said: “Our service will provide all requirements to arrange a complete funeral service and includes liaison with clergy, cemetery or crematoria and any disbursements such as catering, newspapers, florists, etc.
“As members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, all choices and their associated costs will be fully explained and a detailed written estimate is provided prior to the day of the funeral service.
“No greater trust is placed in our hands than the care of the deceased. Our bespoke mortuary and private ‘Rest Rooms’ are within our premises at Peacock Cross and you may be reassured to know that your loved one will be cared for with the utmost dignity and respect whilst they rest in our care.”
Thomas H Fyfe opened the company’s first offices in Quarry Street, Hamilton, and Glasgow Road, Wishaw, in the 1890s as a carriage hire business which also conducted a small number of funerals.
Advertising Feature James Adamson, now in his 89th year, remains a guiding force.
In 1912 the company decided to focus solely on the funeral side of the business and so T & A Fyfe Ltd, Funeral Directors, was founded.
As the company expanded in the 1920s, the Fyfe family bought their Peacock Cross premises at Almada Street, Hamilton.
They were originally used as stables for their horses and storage for carriages.
Over the years the premises have gone though many transformations, culminating in the conversion of the stable block in the 1960s into Lanarkshire’s first dedicated Service Room.
