Creating the funeral you
or your loved one deserve.

Porteous Family Funeral Directors are one of the few remaining family-run, independent funeral directors in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Trusted and recommended, we put our families at the heart of everything we do.

Our meticulous attention to detail, accompanied with our exemplary service and an understanding that only perfection will suffice, is what makes our company so unique when compared to other funeral directors.

We are proud to offer a range of funeral services to suit your budget so whatever your wishes, you can be sure in the knowledge that we will be there to guide and support you in creating exactly the funeral you or your loved one deserve.

There are now two generations of the Porteous family in the company. Mark, his wife Yvonne and son Grant work with a dedicated team of staff, who between them have many years’ experience within the funeral profession.

Since opening our first funeral home in Juniper Green in 2006, our reputation has grown through personal recommendation and we now have a number of additional funeral homes throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Feedback and testimonials

You run a very professional service and are very understanding, caring and kind. At a most difficult time in my life you made me feel at ease and took off a lot of pressure and stress. Your kindness and help will be remembered long after your amazing service.

Lothian Family, Kingsknowe

It is difficult to express just how easy you made, what was a very difficult situation for us. Your empathy towards us made us feel comfortable at all times and your organisation of the whole funeral was so controlled that it didn’t feel as though we had to do anything at all.

Frost Family, Trinity

Sincere thanks for help and attention to detail after our sad loss. Comments and compliments made by family and friends afterwards would have made you very proud.

Bell Family, Baberton Mains

Thank you for the perfect funeral arrangements for my dear dad. We are most grateful to you and your staff and would recommend your services in the future.

Muir Family, Bonnyrigg

Thank you for all you did to help me and would say your services were outstanding and you will always come with top recommendations.

Fitzpatrick Family, Colinton
