Family run business
John G. Corse Funeral Directors is an independent family owned business, providing a professional, caring and understanding service to bereaved families when it matters most. Having been in the family from 1978, it is currently being run by John Corse, since the death of his father in 1995. In summer 2010 John’s son Calum joined the business full time and has since attained the Certificate in Funeral Practice through studying with the IFD College. In 2016, John’s son Ross also joined the business, taking it into the 3rd generation of the Corse family.
We give full advisory on all aspects of burial and cremation. All funeral arrangements vary according to the bereaved family’s wishes; it can be a very stressful and emotional time when you have lost a loved one. At John Corse Funeral Directors, we strive to maintain the high standard of service we provide, so with our caring, understanding and sympathetic attitude we will make this difficult distressing time as stress-free as possible for the bereaved family.
We provide a 24-hour on-call service throughout Orkney.
