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.

We are 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. This gives our families reassurance that our standards of conduct are regulated and regularly monitored.

Feedback and testimonials

I would recommend to any family grieving to go and meet with Fiona at the Blackhall office, she gave us all the time we required to plan my dads funeral, she supported and guided us in the right direction and through it all kept us calm. The planning of the funeral from the cars turning up at the door,to the finish was done with great respect and sincerity...

Thank you for all your help and support in arranging the perfect funeral for my mum. I am very grateful to all the staff and especially Lesley-Ann who was wonderful. I would recommend your services as very professional and caring, my thanks to you all.

Lesley-Ann was just great. She made the whole process of organising my Dads funeral stress free for us and helped make a very difficult time easier to cope with.

Professional funeral directors, providing a first class service with undoubted total knowledge of the requirements of their business, made a difficult and sad occasion for all our family much easier, all staff involved in the process were approachable, kind and considerate , highly recommended.

Very professional, and always made to feel as though nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were excellent but I must pay particular thanks to Lesley Ann who just seemed to know...
