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.

I would sincerely like to thank  Philip Bryan for his outstanding professional caring and thoughtful services that he gave to assist me with giving my beloved husband John a send of that was perfect and beautiful that my husband so deserved. Philips attention to every little detail did not go unnoticed he was so attentive to all the family and gave us all amazing support throughout from the very moment of my husband death and his support is still ongoing. He really goes above and beyond with his services I’m truly grateful and appreciate how smooth he has made things for us through this very sad  difficult and tragic loss. Thank you to all the staff ❤️

    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.

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.
