    At what is a difficult time for any family Susan made it very easy for us and was very helpful. On the day Christine was on hand to guide us and assist as required.

  • 5 Carol Lamb 29th Apr 2018

    I have never organised a funeral before but Susan put me at ease from the very first phone call I made. She listened to what my dad would have wanted and helped me so much. Philip also was very professional introducing himself and phoning a day before to let me know what would happen. My dad had a very good send off and would highly recommend Scotmid at Forrester Park Edinburgh. Thank you all for your professionalism and warm caring staff.

    We would like to thank Candice for the arranging of the funeral, we couldn’t have asked for more, she was there after the arrangements had been done for any questions and support. We would also like to thank Christine for the looking after the family, especially mum on the day of the funeral taking in all our needs, everything from the start to the end and afterwards  is so professionals catered for, we can’t thank you enough.
