Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Muriel Hendry for making the whole funeral Arrangement as uncomplicated and stress free as is possible . Muriel was respectful , compassionate and dedicated to every detail involved , which for our family was important. Muriel contacted me at key moments and was never intrusive , even the after care once the funeral was over was thoughtful and respectful .
The Forrester funeral director was also comforting and everyone was so professional .All the staff were were so caring and compassionate caring for my late mum and ourselves . I will take this opportunity to thank you all once again .

Excellent service from start to finish. My father died at home and Scotmid collected him within an hour of me calling them. The following day I was contacted and the process of the funeral arrangements started. Very professionally handled and everything went very smoothly, they even arranged the teas for after the service. This is not the first time I have used them for family funerals and I wouldn't go anywhere else, they make a difficult time very easy.

Arrangements were excellent, staff were very courteous and respectful and the family were completely happy with how the funeral progressed given that this was a very sad day for us.
5Rodney Harward21st 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.

5Carol Lamb29th 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.
