Lisa Parry - Funeral Arranger

Lisa Parry - Funeral Arranger

I have worked with Scotmid Co-operative Funeral Directors as a Funeral Arranger since March 2012 and have been based in Duke Street Leith since the July of that year. I was previously working part time as an Administration assistant and part time with my Husband Painting and Decorating but felt I needed to be doing something that would help to make a difference to peoples lives and have a sense of job satisfaction.

When the opportunity to work in the Funeral Industry arose I knew it was what I had been looking for and I am still grateful to be doing a job I look forward to going to each day with no two days ever being the same.

I was born and raised in Joppa, Portobello where I loved growing up and had many summers spent on the beach and still love a walk along the seafront. I now live in a small Semi rural village in East Lothian with my Husband. We both love weekends and trips away to different places, live music, movies, and of course living in the countryside we do lots of walking! I enjoy working in the Leith area as it still has the feeling of being a community with lots of history and look forward to meeting the people who come through my door and share some of their stories with me.
