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 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!

    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

  • 5 Tracy Campbell 16th Nov 2018

    I cannot thank Philip, Darren and the Team enough for the way they dealt with my mum's funeral. Philip went above and beyond his role to support us, look after mum and give us guidence when required. He took a personal interest in our situation, he knew my mum liked cream cakes so he bought one, gift wrapped it and put it in the herse with her flowers - we were all so touched by his thoughtfulness. Philip took control of the situation, was contactable at all times and nothing was too much trouble for him. My mum was treated with the utmost respect at all times and on the day of her funeral even moreso. Philip and the Team made an extremely difficult and emotional time as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend this Company. They are extremely professional, compassionate and offer a personal service to families. I cannot thank Philip enough for everything he did for us.

  • 5 Glenda Holman 13th Nov 2018

    This was all setup for me by the funeral directors. Donations automatically went to the MS Society Scotland. Lots of people went on and lit a candle. Excellent service.
