The welcome, help and understanding given to us really helped ease the pain of having to arrange a funeral for our dearly loved brother. Gillian was absolutely excellent and all the staff were so very professional and supportive throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure everything went way and above our expectations. Staff/team to be very proud of. Thank you again

The whole team were very professional and comforting from arranging everything until we were dropped off at the wake. They listened, offered good advice/ options. Arranged for a retired minister who was amazing. Thanks to the team we managed to create a very personal goodbye for our dad. That in itself has helped us as a family to recover from our loss. Nothing was too hard to ask and arrange. A special thank you to Gillian and Philip. These two are an asset to Scotmid! Thank you so much to the whole team.

    Everything was taken off. Made the stress of organising a funeral a lot less worrying for myself and my family. The younger members even had the benefit of the announce for Facebook done for them. The staff at Scotmid from David Shaw at Portobello to Christine who took us to Seafield were excellent and were above and beyond what we expected
