Joe Dawsons Funeral Home

About Westhill

Our Westhill branch is located just outside of Aberdeen City in Aberdeenshire.  The original proprietors, James, and Janet Steven, along with Ian and Kathleen Macintosh, set up Macintosh and Steven over 40 years ago, which had many funeral homes over Aberdeen City and Shire.  Subsequently, in 2001, James and Janet set up Berriedale Funeral Home, Westhill, in the old post office until 2021; they decided to take their well-earned retirement and hand over the reins to William Paterson.
