Broxburn lies to the north of the M8. It was once two distinct settlements, Broxburn to the East and Uphall to the West. The area we now know as Broxburn began to develop in the early 1820s, with the building of the Union Canal. It developed further in 1849 when the railway was built nearby.
The town was further boosted in 1859, when it was discovered that the area was built on layers of rich oil bearing shale. This meant that Broxburn played a key part in the West Lothian oil boom of the late 1800s.
Today, Broxburn is largely a commuter town, thanks to its proximity to the M8 and the industrial areas of Livingston.

You can keep up to date with what’s happening within Thomas Brown Funeral Directors by reading our latest newsletter.
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.
