Betty Briant 5th Nov 2017

Thank you for your help and sympathy in dealing with Keith’s funeral. Your attention to detail was impressive and we would like to particularly thank Candice and Gemma for their services. A special thank you to Phillip Brian on the day of the funeral for his kindness, consideration and attention to detail. The small sample of the wreath as a memento was so touching. Thank you.

    At the most devastating time of our lives, Candice made the whole experience of arranging Mum's service so much easier. She guided us through all aspects relating to the day and beyond which was so comforting. On the day the professionalism of all staff was excellent with no issues. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the services of your team to family and friends - infact I already have. We can't thank you enough. Kind regards. Alison & Louise Thomson

  • 5 Frances Young 10th Jul 2017

    Myself and family were very moved by the respect shown by all at scotmid to my mum at a very difficult time. I cannot remember the gentlemans name who carried out the proceedings but he was most professional and made us all feel like mum was given a very special service. I will certainly recommend scotmid to everyone for their dignity, professionalism and care.

    James Blackburn, Head of Funerals replied
    Thank you for your positive review, recommendation and kind comments. Best wishes Scotmid Co-operative

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.
