About Us
At Alexander Buchan & Son, we are proud to be in our fourth generation of providing excellence in funeral services.

We have been trusted to care since 1945, when the business was opened by Alexander Buchan (Zander) and has since become a well-established, independent firm dedicated to providing quality services and high standards.

Ian Buchan took over in 1996 from his father, John M. Buchan (John Mull) and grandfather (Zander) and in 2010, he decided to open a second funeral home in Mintlaw, Buchan Funeral Directors.

Ian's two sons, Alexander and Stuart, also work in the family business.

When you suffer a bereavement, a funeral for a member of your family is the most difficult day of your life. Everything your family and friends ever thought about a loved one is expressed on that day.

When someone dies it comes as a great shock. Sometimes the death may be expected but nothing prepares you for the emotional shock of losing someone close.

As your funeral directors, we are here to help and advise in whatever way we can. We are dedicated professionals who provide a personal service to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

It is a rare privilege to be a funeral director, to stand in a sensitive position at a crucial time in the midst of your family, knowing that the quality of our service and reputation will help you through this most difficult time in your lives.

The information on our website is also provided in printed form, as a brochure. Feel free to ask for a copies, It allows you to sit in the privacy of your own home and reflect on the information you have been given and to raise any further questions you may have about complementary or additional services we can provide.

It is not our policy to impose urgency or apply undue pressure on you or your family. It is important for many people to reflect on the personality and character of the deceased within the arrangements and this often requires time and thought to do so. .
