About Porteous Funeral Directors
Since opening his first office in Juniper Green, the company’s reputation has grown through personal recommendation and we now also operate from additional offices in Colinton, Leith and Blackhall. Porteous Independent Funeral Directors also acquired Bonnyrigg Funeral Directors in January 2012, making us well placed to serve the people of Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Mark works with his wife Yvonne, son Grant and a dedicated team of staff, who between them have many years’ experience within the funeral industry. They are all committed to offering families the best possible service and take seriously their responsibilities of caring and helping families at a difficult time.
Porteous Funeral Directors is a member of SAIF (National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors) and NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors) and abide strictly by their individual Codes of Practice.
Mark is currently Vice President of Scottish SAIF which gives him the opportunity to ensure all other independent Funeral Directors in Scotland maintain professional and high standards at all times.
Independent and family owned and managed, Porteous Funeral Directors was established in 2006 by Mark Porteous.
Proud to serve the local community
How we work
At Porteous Funeral Directors, we believe that every funeral is unique and should be personal to you and your loved one.
We pride ourselves on offering the highest level of personal service that you should expect from start to finish. We understand how difficult bereavement can be and appreciate the stress and anxiety created by a loss of a loved one but you can be reassured that you will remain in control at all times.
When you meet with us we will allocate one of our professional staff who will be there to guide and support you and who will remain your main contact throughout the funeral arrangement process.
We are proud that we are not managed or owned by a head office located elsewhere, we do not hide behind a private name - we are exactly who we say we are, an independent Family Funeral Director, flexible and responsive to you and your family, which we believe makes a difference.
As an Independent Funeral Director with roots firmly established within the local community we will guarantee service, care and professionalism at all times.
