From the beginning of what is a very difficult process we were treated with the utmost dignity and respect. We dealt with Gilian throughout and she could not have made things easier for the whole family. From ensuring the day went as planned, facilitating family viewings, organising the statutory as well as the emotional needs and the smaller details like remembering all of our names throughout the process. We were treated as valued friends, not just customers.

Our family would like to thank Gillian Harvey who has been absolutely wonderful.  She guided us through everything with sympathy and quiet humour when needed it especially my father. Nothing was too much trouble and everything went and was perfect on the day. Many thanks to everyone involved at a very difficult time. Sharon Street

    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

  • 5 Audrey Hunter 30th Jun 2019

    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.
