Lean on our experience
Let our family help yours, when you need us the most.
Eric P Massie has been an established funeral director in Inverurie for many years, serving the local community and earning its trust. In 1965, Eric founded the business on his experience as a joiner and cabinet-maker which included the provision of coffins for customers. In the early 1990s, his focus shifted from joinery to full time funeral directing and in 1995, Eric's son Alan joined the team along with current manager, Ian Thomson. The two generation family owner-managers continue to build the business and Alan eventually succeeds Eric.
Planning his retirement in 2016, Alan sought out another family business with the ethics and experience to take on his legacy. William Purves, with its five generations and reputation for premier funeral services, was a natural fit. Today, our values of compassion, dedication, integrity and respect are at the heart of Eric P Massie.
The four-strong team continue to support bereaved families in inverurie and the wider Aberdeenshire area.
Putting your family first
As the final ritual of life, a funeral is our way of saying goodbye, honouring a life lived and a life loved. Which is why we start with the view that every funeral is unique and every funeral is special. In years to come we want you to look back without regret and take comfort from the way you laid your loved one to rest.
We have been guiding and supporting families through bereavement for many generations.
Let our family help your family.
