About Us

This funeral home in Broxburn is proud to be a part of Scotland’s largest independent co-operative, with a rich history spanning over 150 years.

Thomas Browns are proud to be at the heart of the local communities it serves, with its Broxburn funeral home. Located on West Main Street and was once an old church. There is plenty of off street parking available at the front of the office.

Broxburn lies to the north of the M8. It was once two distinct settlements, Broxburn to the East and Uphall to the West. The area now known as Broxburn began to develop in the early 1820s, with the building of the Union Canal. It developed further in 1849 when the railway was built nearby.

They understand that arranging a funeral for someone close to you can be a difficult experience. That’s why they will guide you through everything involved, all the practicalities to planning a truly personal service that is both affordable and professional whilst offering support, care and compassion at all times.

Scotmid funerals are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and the The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA).

It’s been carrying out funerals since 1927 with funeral homes across Edinburgh – and beyond. They can be contacted whenever they are needed day or night. Call now for funeral care and support.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
