About Us

We are extremely proud to be Lochaber’s only locally owned and managed funeral directors. We are a well established company with a trusted and respected reputation within the communities around Fort William and Lochaber providing families and their loved ones with the highest standards of care, dignity and respect.

The company was established by Mike McFall, and over a period of 45 years Mike arranged and conducted funeral services in Lochaber, earning himself a well respected reputation. When Mike started his own company after many years of senior funeral management he continued these high standards of care and compassion and with his exceptional reputation he became the managing director of Lochaber’s leading funeral directors.

We are now, Manson & MacBeath Funeral Directors.

In 2017 Mike McFall announced his retirement after more than 45 years working within the funeral industry. Existing employees of over 10 years, us, Beth MacBeath and Jamie Manson took over the business from Mike. We continue to offer the same high level of care, respect and warmth our community deserves.

Beth, who at the time was Mike’s office manager and now a director of the company and Jamie Manson who at the time was a Funeral Director and now Principal Funeral Director with the company, co own the business together.
