My sisters and I were absolutely delighted with the services of Scotmid. Every member of the team, led by Richard, was simply marvellous. They were extremely courteous and polite. Richard himself took full control admirably, and left us with no concerns whatsoever.

Scotmid Funerals Coop, Liberton Brae, Edinburgh. Our family had the devastating need to use a Funeral Directors for the sudden unexpected death of a family member with the body having to be Repatriated back to the UK from Spain.  I made contact with Scotmid Funeral Coop on Liberton Brae, Edinburgh to see if they could deal with this. Allan Taylor was my first point of contact and I can honestly say his compassion and professionalism was excellent. He kept in contact with me throughout the Repatriation and the days beyond, which continued on for 5 weeks. He also assisted greatly with our decisions for our family members funeral. On the week leading up to the Funeral, Allan had planned Annual Leave and we were passed over to Victoria Jackson. Again, Victoria was compassionate and professional and she went above and beyond to console my mother when we spent some alone time with our family member.  Victoria also sourced pink ties for Scotmid Staff to wear on the day of the Funeral as she knew this was our family members favourite colour and we would all be wearing pink. The Funeral was absolutely beautiful and really captured the essence of our loved one. The Humanist, Lisbeth ***, delivered a beautiful compassionate Service which was extremely emotional, yet lovely to listen to as it was delivered so beautifully.  It has been an extremely horrendous dark time in our lives yet Scotmid Funerals Coop done absolutely everything they could to make it that little bit easier for us.❤️❤️❤️

  • 5 Kerry Ford 29th Sep 2017

    Everything was perfect. From start to finish. Muriel was fantastic, nothing to much trouble for her. Christine was amazing, she turned the car so Mum's 94 year old friend wasn't far from the car door & so respectful as they all had green feathers in their lapels in memory of mum. Muriel also called the day after Mum's funeral to ask how it all went & how we were. Service was so personal & everyone did more than 100% for mum & the family. I would highly recommend Scotmid to everyone. Thank you for making a very hard & sad time easier for us Kerry xx

    Chris Armstrong, Funeral Manager replied
    Dear Kerry, thank you very much for your positive review, I will pass onto Muriel and Christine who will be most grateful for your kind comments. Kind Regards 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.
