This funeral home in Broxburn is proud to be a part of Scotland’s largest independent co-operative, with a rich history spanning over 150 years.

Thomas Browns are proud to be at the heart of the local communities it serves, with its Broxburn funeral home. Located on West Main Street and was once an old church. There is plenty of off street parking available at the front of the office.

Broxburn lies to the north of the M8. It was once two distinct settlements, Broxburn to the East and Uphall to the West. The area now known as Broxburn began to develop in the early 1820s, with the building of the Union Canal. It developed further in 1849 when the railway was built nearby.

That’s why they will guide you through everything involved, all the practicalities to planning a truly personal service that is both affordable and professional whilst offering support, care and compassion at all times.

    Although this was a heartbreaking day it was full of respect and dignity. Our funeral director for the day was Gerald whose professionalism went above and beyond and I can only thank him from the bottom of my heart. The funeral was for my darling mum and you have made her send off so special. I cannot praise Thomas Brown Funeral Directors enough from the moment I stepped through the door with a heavy heart. Lorraine made us so welcome and couldn't do enough for the families wishes.

    James Blackburn, Head of Funerals replied
    Dear Susan, thank you for your kind comments and positive review. I will share it with Ged, Lorraine and the rest of the team at Thomas Brown. With our best wishes
