ABOUT SCOTT OTLEY
I am a fully qualified Funeral Director who will provide you with a personal, professional & empathetic service at a lower cost. Paying less does not mean you get a lesser service! I simply offer my professional & personal service at a realistic cost.
I hold the prestigious BIFD license to practice as a Funeral Director, this ensures family's that they are dealing with someone who is qualified to the highest possible standard in the industry & licensed to care for their loved one. I am also the Chairman for the Northern Ireland division of the British Institute of Funeral Directors (BIFD).
In my opinion & throughout my 20-year career, I strongly believe that families have overpaid for a lesser service.
With me, I guarantee the highest standards with realistic pricing. I am currently & will continue to be Belfast & Newtownabbey’s most cost-effective Funeral Director. I offer my services at a realistic & competitive price. With me, gone are the days of being shocked at the cost of a funeral.
I take immense pride in my work & although I cannot ease your heartache or take away your sadness, I do promise to make a difference to you & your family from the moment you request my services.
I offer services that are exclusive to us & I am the only Funeral Director offering a bespoke video funeral package.
Arrangements can be made in the comfort of your own home, or in my ''home from home'' effect arrangement room.
Scott Otley DIP F.S. LM BIFD, N.I Chairman
At the age of 5, I lost my father to the troubles. Unfortunately, at such a young age there are many things I cannot recall about this stage of my life. One thing I do recall is the appreciation from my family for what the funeral director did for us at this difficult time. This was always spoke about throughout my family & therefore stuck in my mind. As I grew older & learnt more about the role of a funeral director, it soon became my ambition in life to become just that. I want to help families through difficult times, just as the funeral director previously done with my own family.
Now with over 20 years’ experience, I have never looked back.
Throughout my career, I have worked for two independent funeral directors & a multi-national funeral directors, holding positions of, Funeral Home Manager & Hub Manager. Using the knowledge & experience gained throughout my career, along with my passion for my profession, I made the decision to open my own funeral home.
I hold a Prestigious Diploma in Funeral Directing, the highest available qualification in the funeral industry. I am also a member of the Kenyon International Disaster Team who have responded to worldwide incidents including, The September 11th New York terrorist attacks, The Russian Aircraft Disaster & The Grenfell Tower Fire in London.
For numerous years throughout my career, I have set trends & introduced new innovative ideas to the funeral industry. These ideas were welcomed by other funeral directors & put into practice in their own funeral homes.
I am now grateful for the opportunity to be able to use these ideas throughout my own funeral home. I look forward to developing further ideas, to help enhance the benefits of families, who choose me to carry out their funeral service.
