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.

Our experienced and caring team will take the time to listen to you. They’ll help you plan the most appropriate funeral, whether that is a traditional service or something unique.

We are a co-operative so we focus on the needs of the people we serve, not the demands of shareholders. We are proud to be at the heart of the communities we serve and are committed to being open, honest, ethical and professional at all times.

We are part of Scotmid Co-operative Society, founded in Edinburgh in 1859. We have 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 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.
