    A wonderful and understanding team. They provided supporting and caring services right from the first time we contacted them which made it so much easier for the family at this very sad time. Philip, Candice and staff are a very professional and understanding team and made dad’s send off so special for which we will be forever grateful for.

    The team at Scotmid (Forrester Park) were so helpful at what was a difficult time. Their support and guidance from first meeting to the ceremony, and afterwards, was excellent. I cannot thank them enough for supporting me and the family to celebrate Kath's life in way we wanted.

    Both Margaret and Muriel were both so friendly and caring, and made arranging our Mums funeral so easy and at time,s made us laugh when we were talking about Mum

    Stephen @ clermiston made sure we were kept up to date the whole way through and helped us whenever he could. Philip @ foresters talked us through the entire process on the day and made sure we were completely comfortable. Both branches were very professional and considerate to our needs.

    I have requested the services of the staff at Fountainbridge before, and I have no hesitation in recommending them as they are excellent at what they do from start to finish. Wendy helped us  to arrange everything we needed following the loss of our mother, and nothing was any bother at all. I was nervous on the day of the Service in case I had missed something out but I worried needlessly, as the Service was arranged and handled beautifully and respectfully. I cannot thank Wendy enough for all she did for us. Our sincere gratitude also to Susan, Philip and all the staff at Forrester Park Drive for looking after Mom and their warm welcome and care towards us on our visits to Mom while she was there.

    Candice Everything went to plan yesterday, timing for both services was perfect. Unfortunately we have used Scotmid a few times and have always felt at ease when dealing with these difficult times A personal Thanks to yourself and Philip for taking care of all the arrangements

    My Dad and I received an excellent service from Susan and the team. It made arranging my Mums funeral a much less difficult experience than we imagined and everything was carried out to the highest standard. A kind phone call the day before the funeral alleviated all our last minute worries. We would highly recommend Scotmid Forrester and would like to thank you very much for all your help.

    We found Scotmid Funeral services gave us an excellent service. They dealt with everything with compassion. We would like to thank Candice for her caring manner and Danielle as they both helped us through a difficult time with my father's funeral.

    Margaret and Muriel at Penicuik were excellent as were Philip Bryan and the two drivers on the day. They were very attentive and efficient. Cannot find fault with anything.

  • 5 Margaret Milligan 27th Jan 2020

    The staff at Scotmid have been amazing, the respect that was shown to myself and family was outstanding. Gillian in the Portobello branch, was so helpful, caring and understanding and I can't thank her enough for everything she done.

  • 5 Anne Currie 25th Jan 2020

    I am really impressed with the level of care I have received from Margaret and Muriel following the passing of my husband Robert. Everything went perfectly from Philip phoning the day before to explain what would take place on the day. He took special care of Robert, me and my family with compassion and respect. I couldn't have asked for anything better and it meant a lot to me and my family to feel special. Also a special thanks to John Jones for the service.

  • 5 Andrea Cruickshank 24th Jan 2020

    Gillian & her team couldn’t have helped me anymore than they did during this very sad time. I would recommend them to anyone.

    The organisation of my mother’s funeral was absolutely superb. From the moment I contacted Scotmid Funerals until the last mourner left the cemetery their professionalism  was supreme. They covered every detail in a relaxed and sympathetic manner and offered advice and guidance on every aspect. Everything was covered down to the last detail and what I thought would be a strenuous and difficult exercise turned out to be simplicity itself. Susan, whom I dealt with from the beginning, to Richard, who was the funeral director on the day of the burial, covered everything,and every eventuality, down to the smallest detail. This was Alpha plus service of the highest calibre. It was so good those who attended thanked me for putting on such a good show and I, of course, shamelessly took the credit when it really lies with the Scotmid team.  Thank you. George Birrell

    I would highly recommend the services of scotmid to all. We as a family have had 4 funerals done by scotmid in the last 2 years and every time they have been exceptional the level of service and care has been outstanding. Darren and his team made such a difficult time in our family life that little bit easier due to their care and professional attitude. We could not thank them enough.
