Kenneth Keegan Adv Dip FD
Director and Funeral Director
I started in the funeral profession in November 2005 as a trainee Funeral Director gaining my advance diploma in August 2006. After working for large national funeral directors for ten years, I decided that opening my own business was the best way I could serve my clients and their loved ones. In August 2014 I opened Kenneth Keegan Independent Funeral Directors.
I passionately believe families and their loved one’s should be our top priority. That all bereaved families deserve a local funeral director who can offer flexibility in all aspects of the service they provide, allowing arrangements to be tailored to their personal wishes at an affordable cost.
I am married to Kelly and have two boys, Blair and Rory. We also have our dog Maggie who is a Westie/Maltese cross.
In my spare time I enjoy watching any sports. Taking my sons to Rugby and Tennis classes and going for long walks with the family. I enjoy travelling and visiting the many beautiful places to see in Scotland.
