About our Edgbaston funeral home

Welcome to W. H. Scott & Son Funeral Directors in Edgbaston, where we help our local families honour the memory of their loved ones with dignity. We are proud of our rich heritage and would be honoured to arrange a unique and personal funeral for your loved one.

Our funeral home, founded over 80 years ago on Rotton Park Road, is easily accessible from Smethwick, Winson Green, Hockley, the Jewellery Quarter, Ladywood, Bearwood and beyond.

Over the years, several changes have been made to our funeral home. The original stables were adapted to modern garages, where we house our fleet to keep our cars in immaculate condition for the funeral services that we oversee.

Our team, including Mr Bill Scott from the founding family, is here to help you with whatever you need to ensure your loved one’s funeral service is conducted beautifully and seamlessly.

However you wish to say goodbye to your loved one, we will arrange it. Whether that is a simple religious ceremony or a vibrant celebration of your loved one’s life.

If you cannot reach us here in Rotton Park, you can also visit us in Quinton, Barnes Hill or Rubery, if they are closer to you. If you prefer to arrange the funeral details from the comfort of your own home, we will be happy to come arrange a visit. We will sit down with you to discuss your wishes and requests, such as picking the flowers, the cortege route, the coffin and more.

We are here to support you and your family through every step. You can get in touch with us at any time you need on 0121 558 8801. We will be there for you.

I would like to thank Emma for all her support at a particularly difficult time.

This is the second time we have used WH Scott. The first time was for my dad and then again for mum. The one thing i really appreciated is the way they were almost able to just put themselves into our shoes. They were so understanding and their calm approach made us feel at ease. They took care of all the plans for us after having discussed our options and they even made some welcomed suggestions. Things that we never thought of but were necessary. The day was seamless. The horse and cart and cars were magnificent. They took us from the house to the crematorium along our planned route effortlessly. Without their input i dont think dad and mum would have had such a dignified send off. I cannot praise them enough. Thank you so much WH Scott.

The W H Scott team provided a personal and professional service from the very first meeting to carrying out my late mum’s funeral. Their approach helped to make things easier during a difficult and emotional time.

If I was to sum up W H Scott, I would describe them as ‘professional’, ‘compassionate’ and ‘respectful’.

I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone

This is the 2nd time we have used W H Scott & Son first when our father William Alexander Wilson passed away in Oct 2004 & recently for my mother Carmel Louise Wilson who passed away 30th March 2019. We only have total praise and admiration in the manner myself and my 2 siblings were treated.There was nothing they could not deal with. We requested Bill Scott to conduct our mother's funeral as he did our fathers funeral and our request was granted. To us this was going the extra mile to accommodate our request. In fact who ever we spoke to or saw gave us 100% commitment and we did not feel pressured or rushed regarding the organising of the funeral.

I would highly recommend W.H. Scott and Son to anyone who has lost a loved one. Emma, Claire and the team turned a stressful and bewildering time to an empathetic and a much easier journey during possibly the most stressful time for any family. Emma and Claire were professional, approachable, caring, empathetic, compassionate and patient throughout the whole process. We were kept in the loop and contacted throughout which was reassuring. The whole service was outstanding from the beginning - I cannot imagine it could have gone better.

My family and I were completely bowled over by the level of professionalism, care, support and attention to detail by Clair and the team at WH Scott & Son.

Clair was very attentive and stood by our side throughout the planning and on the actual day of the funeral. Nothing that we asked was ever too much. Many of our family and friends have asked if she conducts funerals outside of Birmingham! This speaks of the impact that she had.

We were the recipients of a first class, friendly service and we were given guidance throughout an extremely difficult period in our lives.

A huge thank you to Clair and the team.

The service provided by W H Scott and Sons was wonderful. On our first visit Lianne gave us full confidence that our Mothers funeral would be just as she and we would have wanted it. We were treated with dignity and compassion at all times. On the day Gary and the team looked after us and made sure the funeral was just as we had requested. We could not have asked for better service for our Mother. We have required W H Scotts services for two previous family funeral, during the last 15 years, and on each occasion the service has been excellent.

W H Scott & Son have to be one of the most 'talked about' Funeral Directors in our community. Following my fathers death Clare dealt with the family as a whole unit - My sibling who is based in the USA was able to join the first meeting via FaceTime. Everyone was made to feel included and the process of 'what to do next' was explained concisely. The caring explanations continued throughout and what was achieved was the most amazing, dignified and wonderful send off for an extremely loved individual. Mr Scott and his team went over and beyond to make the day special - this is not just a job it's a calling! Thank you to a wonderful team inc Simon & Emma x
