Words cannot express how grateful we were to meet Wendy.  She led us through a very difficult time and made us feel calm and in control.  Everyone involved was respectful, empathetic and beyond helpful which ended in a beautiful send off for our loved one.

Douglas Gilzean 23rd Nov 2019

From start to finish, Scotmid and ALL of the staff could not have done any more to make our father’s farewell any more special than it was. My father was well known in Edinburgh so it must have been very difficult for them to arrange what ended up a very public funeral. From Wendy in the office to Christine and the boy’s on the day, everything was done to perfection. To be honest all of the arrangements were  something most could only dream of. Our father could never have imagined the send off he received.  Our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you. 

Lorna Taylor 3rd Oct 2019

Very professional and I was very well looked after for the day. My mum was treated with dignity and respect. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was explained to us.

    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!!!!

    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

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?
