About Us

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

Scotmid is proud to be at the heart of the local communities it serves, with its Fountainbridge office located in central Edinburgh.

Close to Edinburgh’s city centre, the listed Georgian building just off Lothian Road. There is limited parking available, although there is parking at a nearby supermarket.

They have strong ties with the area, as it was the location of St Cuthbert’s co-operative’s first shop and was home to Scotmid’s head office until 2005.

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.

    I could not fault the professionalism of the staff. They gave my Mum a day she would have been proud of. They made every step of the planning a lot easier.

  • 5 Julie McIntosh 9th Oct 2018

    They were really nice and listened to everything we wanted and achieved everything we asked for. However I do find reviewing a funeral a bit inappropriate!!!!

  • 5 Maureen Anderson 20th Aug 2018

    Although Mum had already Pre organised her  funeral I is a daunting thought to put in in place. However every  aspect of this service was excellent. From the minute we visit d Gillian took care of all, with empathy and discretion She Gave us advice on registering the death, flowers etc. Therefore saving us time and further distress at this sadtime. 

  • 5 Gavin Rademeyer 6th Aug 2018

    Thank you for everything that you have done for my dad and for the my sisters and I. It has been done in a dignified manner which understates the professional but quiet and compassionate way that things have been done and are continuing to be done for the memorial service. Many thanks again Gavin and family.

  • 5 Alison Alexander 4th Aug 2018

    Fantastic service from Scotmid and Gillian Steven and Graham  Everything was perfect on the day  Caring staff throughout the day  Many thanks 

  • 5 Rodney Harward 21st May 2018

    An excellent service, nothing seemed to be too much trouble and all the stress was taken out of organising, from England, an otherwise complex event delivered in Scotland. Scotmid staff were friendly, compassionate and went the extra mile to make what one of those who attended say 'Yesterday's service was beautiful, simplicity itself. You all made a perfect send off for Shaughan'. Thank you Scotmid Fountainbridge.

  • 5 Kirsty Donaldson 28th Apr 2018
