    Scotmid Funeral Services arranged the Funeral of my Wife. From the initial meeting with Susan to the Funeral directed by Philip, everyone was caring, compassionate, understanding and professional.  As a Family we cannot recomend Scotmid highly enough. At a time of extreme grief, the staff actually supported the Family through the process and could genuinely not do enough for the Family. I can’t thank you Susan, Phillip, Christine and the team enough. From the Russell and Noble Family’s.

  • 5 David Paterson 4th Oct 2019

    Thank you for making such a painful time so much more bearable with your help and guidance.

  • 5 Christine Vickery 23rd Sep 2019

    At what was a devastating time for my family we were welcomed into a room at Forrester Park and immediately comforted, put at ease and generally made to feel we could show our emotions when speaking about our loved one but also speak freely. They certainly pulled out all the stops for us and they have left a lasting impression. We initially dealt with Susan who could almost read our minds, then Candice, and between them, in different ways, they helped us more than words could say. Alex was our man on the day of the funeral and again, nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend your organisation and Forrester Park Branch to anyone in need of your specialist services. We cannot thank you all enough.

  • 5 Chloe Smith 9th Sep 2019
