    We asked for a simply service. We need guidance.  they listened well, guided us through. Provided expert advice. They added personal touches everything went really well and our friends and family were all impressed.

  • 5 Laraine Bathgate 25th Mar 2019

    Our experience of the service provided by Scotmid Funerals during our recent bereavement was absolutely first class. From our initial meeting with Susan McGlame through to the funeral itself was outstanding in the professionalism they showed during this very sad time. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

  • 5 Richard Walker 22nd Mar 2019

    They made everything so easy to organise. The staff were really nice and friendly. On the day everything was lovely. All in all the service provided was really caring and supportive making it a lot easier for us as a family to cope with. Thank you.

  • 5 Jackie Blackburn 22nd Mar 2019

    This is the second occasion that we have used Scotmid at Forrester Park in Edinburgh and I could not fault their service. They treat the deceased and the families with the greatest respect. Susan was very attentive and did her utmost to guide and help us through a very stressful time. Thank you so much to all of the staff, especially Susan. Xx

  • 5 Donald Maciver 27th Feb 2019

    Couldn't have wished for better service. Every little detail considered. Nothing too much.

  • 5 Norma Mitchell 25th Feb 2019

    Scotmid dealt with our funeral quietly but efficiently, nothing was a problem to them. I would recommend them to anyone.

  • 5 Graham Todd 24th Feb 2019

    Once again, Phil Bryan, Susan McGlame and the team did our family proud. Attention paid to every detail and went the extra mile to fulfil a couple of requests. A beautiful experience throughout a very difficult time. Kindest regards.

  • 5 Sylvia Taylor 20th Feb 2019

    At such a devastating time Susan made the planning of the funeral an easier process than we imagined it would be and filled us with confidence that our family member was well looked after and that it was obviously really important to her that everything went smoothly for us. Iain and his team performed their duties on the day with respect and dignity and again made sure we were well looked after. I would definitely recommend their services.

  • 5 Gillian Brunton 15th Feb 2019

    I could not ask for a better service than from this company, Candice and Philip are lovely caring people who made the journey for my brother so special that myself and my family were delighted with at this sad time.

  • 5 June Corsie 11th Feb 2019

    I am extremely happy with the service provided Everything was as planed in particular I would like to mention Susan and Phillip for their support and professionalism Whilst I hope not to have a need for your services again in the near future I certainly wouldn’t go anywhere else and would definitely recommend you to others

  • 5 Michael Orr 5th Feb 2019

    Scotmid funerals were absolutely fantastic and for us made a very difficult time so much easier. Everything they could handle for us they did, even things I was sure I would have to arrange myself. Handling certain parts yourself might save you a little money but overall I was glad to have the wonderful team at Scotmid arrange on my behalf and then only have to worry about setting the one bill at the end. A special thanks to Susan for all her work planning the day and guiding us through arrangements, to Phillip for his compassion and help through the day itself and to everyone else involved in making a difficult day much better than I anticipated. Great bunch of folk that I would happily recommend to anyone. Thanks again Scotmid team!

  • 5 Hugh Byers 4th Feb 2019

    The 5 stars says it all.

  • 5 Lorna Fairbairn 25th Jan 2019

    Was very pleased with the service received very professional but caring at the same time Susan was really nice and easy to talk too,and because I had never had to arrange a funeral before she was very helpful and nothing was a bother even though they were very busy and it was at the festive season. 

  • 5 Jim Smith 29th Dec 2018

    My family and I greatly appreciated the sympathetic care and attention provided to us by the whole team at Broomhouse Road. In particular Susan McGlame for her handling of the initial administration and then most importantly your director(forgotten name) on the day for ensuring we had the service celebrating my wife's life which is exactly what we wanted. Many thanks to all.

  • 5 Andrew Newberry 23rd Dec 2018

    All the staff were very sympathetic, understanding & very helpful. Nothing was to much trouble for them especially Susan & Phillip who made the day run smoothly leaving us to remember our loved one without having to worry about anything else
