Rodney Harward 21st May 2018

An excellent service, nothing seemed to be too much trouble and all the stress was taken out of organising, from England, an otherwise complex event delivered in Scotland. Scotmid staff were friendly, compassionate and went the extra mile to make what one of those who attended say 'Yesterday's service was beautiful, simplicity itself. You all made a perfect send off for Shaughan'. Thank you Scotmid Fountainbridge.

Gillian st Fountainhridge was brilliant. She got what we were trying to achieve. Was so respectful and just generally put us at ease throughout. Everything went without a hitch. Thank you.

Gillian at Fountainbridge was extremely helpful and made the whole process stress free. At a time that is very stressful for the family she took us through the process in a professional but friendly manner.

About Us

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

Scotmid is proud to be at the heart of the local communities it serves, with its Fountainbridge office located in central Edinburgh.

Close to Edinburgh’s city centre, the listed Georgian building just off Lothian Road. There is limited parking available, although there is parking at a nearby supermarket.

They have strong ties with the area, as it was the location of St Cuthbert’s co-operative’s first shop and was home to Scotmid’s head office until 2005.

They understand that arranging a funeral for someone close to you can be a difficult experience. 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.

Scotmid funerals are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD), The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) and we’re proud to be recommended by The Good Funeral Guide, a trusted information resource for independent funeral advice.

It’s been carrying out funerals since 1927 with funeral homes across Edinburgh – and beyond. They can be contacted whenever they are needed day or night. Call now for funeral care and support.

    Gillian Harvey understood the family's wishes to run Dad's funeral themselves. Her guidance, support and communication throughout was excellent. Ian Benning, funeral director on the day, was discreet, compassionate and sensitive.  I highly recommend Scotmid funeral services.
