About Us

Founded as a family firm in 1904 Thomas Brown Funeral Directors has long been part of the Broxburn community. Generations of families have trusted us to provide the care and support they need. We are able to take care of every aspect of funeral planning and arrangements, from guiding you through what needs to be done, to helping you create a fitting memorial.

Our supportive, experienced staff are available at all times, and are able to provide whatever level of support you need.

From planning a service that’s right for you and your family, to helping you choose the most fitting memorial masonry, we can help you through this difficult time.

We are now part of the Scotmid C0-operative family, so have the support of an extensive network of suppliers, ensuring that whatever you need from us can be arranged.

If you are a member of Scotmid you’ll also get a discount of £100 if you take out a pre-paid funeral plan with us, and a further £100 discount is applied when a Scotmid member dies, and uses our funeral services. Click here to find out more about Scotmid Membership.

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.

As a member firm of the NAFD we abide by ‘The Funeral Directors Guiding Principles’ you can see a copy of these principles here, you can also see a full copy of the code on their website.

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 have signed up to the Fair Funerals Pledge 2020. By signing the Fair Funerals pledge 2020, we’re part of a community of  Funeral Directors who agree to put transparency and honesty at the centre of their work. We ensure that our costs and terms and conditions are displayed in our offices and on our website, so that anyone can see our costs, as well as the approximate fees for third parties, such as the crematorium or burial fees.

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.
