A funeral service for Lord Fraser's extended family is being organised with a public thanksgiving service to be arranged in a few weeks.

Lord Fraser leaves an outstanding record of public service to Scotland as a politician and, particularly, as Lord Advocate. Scottish public life is much poorer for his passing and my thoughts are with his wife, Fiona, and their family at this sad time."

– First Minister Alex Salmond
