About us

At Scotmid Co-operative Funeral Directors, we understand that arranging a funeral for someone close to you is a difficult experience. That is why we’ll guide you through everything involved, from the practicalities to planning a truly personal service. We’ve been carrying out funerals since 1927 with premises across the city – and beyond – and can be contacted whenever you need us, day or night.

We’re part of Scotmid Co-operative Society, founded in Edinburgh in 1859.  As a co-operative we focus on the needs of the people we serve, not the demands of shareholders. We’re proud to be at the heart of the communities we serve and are committed to being open, honest, ethical and professional at all times. You can find out more about Scotmid here.

Scotmid is owned by a membership of over 250,000 so becoming a member gives you the opportunity to truly be part of something bigger! Members have the opportunity to have a say in how Scotmid is run, ensuring Scotmid remains at the heart of Scottish communities. Click here to find out more.

We’re members of the National Association of Funeral Directors  (NAFD), the association represents the funeral profession at all levels of Government on legislative matters and campaigns on issues affecting not only funeral directors, but also bereaved families too. They provide informed opinion to Parliamentarians, Government agencies and consumer groups on all funeral matters.

We’re also members of The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) is an organisation set up by the industry to regulate providers in the UK pre-paid funeral plan industry. Our primary aim is to ensure providers that are registered with the FPA are operating in a manner that will result in customers getting the funeral they have paid for when it is needed.

We’re proud to be recommended by The Good Funeral Guide, who are wholly independent of the funeral industry, and is dedicated to supporting, empowering and representing the interests of dying and bereaved people living in the UK.

We’re members of the Humanist Society of Scotland, they were formed in 1989 in response to a rising demand for a nationwide Scottish organisation that was open to all.

Humanist Society Scotland is part of a UK, European and wider international movement of people and organisations. In Scotland, Humanist Society members have a clear vision of a secular Scotland, and the activities that Humanist Society Scotland can pursue to achieve that end.
