About Us

    About John Roach Funeral Directors

    John Roach Funeral Directors has been providing services within the local area for over 20 years.

    John Roach Funeral Directors was opened in 2001 in Johnstone, Renfrewshire, which is at the western edge of Greater Glasgow, by local undertaker John Roach.

    We are proud of our reputation within Johnstone and surrounding area and will continue to strive to provide that little personal touch that we believe elevates our service beyond the norm.

    If you opt for a cremation, you can choose from a range of local crematoriums, including Woodside Crematorium, Craigton Crematorium, Clyde Coast and Garnock Valley Crematorium, and The Hurlet Crematorium.

    Here at John Roach Funeral Directors we offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
