Jim Smith 29th Dec 2018

My family and I greatly appreciated the sympathetic care and attention provided to us by the whole team at Broomhouse Road. In particular Susan McGlame for her handling of the initial administration and then most importantly your director(forgotten name) on the day for ensuring we had the service celebrating my wife's life which is exactly what we wanted. Many thanks to all.

  • 5 Tracy Campbell 16th Nov 2018

    I cannot thank Philip, Darren and the Team enough for the way they dealt with my mum's funeral. Philip went above and beyond his role to support us, look after mum and give us guidence when required. He took a personal interest in our situation, he knew my mum liked cream cakes so he bought one, gift wrapped it and put it in the herse with her flowers - we were all so touched by his thoughtfulness. Philip took control of the situation, was contactable at all times and nothing was too much trouble for him. My mum was treated with the utmost respect at all times and on the day of her funeral even moreso. Philip and the Team made an extremely difficult and emotional time as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend this Company. They are extremely professional, compassionate and offer a personal service to families. I cannot thank Philip enough for everything he did for us.

    This was all setup for me by the funeral directors. Donations automatically went to the MS Society Scotland. Lots of people went on and lit a candle. Excellent service.

    I can't thank all the staff at scotmid funeral directors enough for all there help lately especially Darren Gunn. Aswell as Darren being a good friend he is always very professional at his job and goes the extra mile to help every family that he has to deal with. The offers of advice on what to do next and how we carry on with life was really grateful and if ever we needed to speak about anything then we were not to hestitate and call him.

    The helpful assistance and advice of the funeral directors made a difficult time less so.

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.
