Edgbaston Funeral Directors

Founded over 100 years ago by the Scott family, W H Scott & Son Funeral Directors have helped many families in Birmingham through difficult times. Our founding family are still involved with the business and the local community of Edgbaston.

Our funeral home was once a launderette, acquired over 80 years ago. Over the years changes have been made and the original stables were adapted to become garages for our fleet. Later, we added a tunnel to keep our cars dry in preparation for funeral services.

We are proud of our heritage, and we work with all kinds of families to arrange unique and personal funerals. We can conduct religious ceremonies, and we welcome people of all cultures and ethnicities. After all, our community is dear to us.

Whatever type of funeral service you want for your loved one, we will be able to help. You can sit down with us to discuss what you want to happen, picking your favourite flowers or perhaps a memorial. We are here to support you when you need us, as we have been for many others in the past.

You can get in touch with us by telephone at any time of the day. Whenever you need our support, give us a call.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 0121 558 8801 to talk through your personal requirements.

    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
