Mortonhall Crematorium

Cremation in Edinburgh

Mortonhall Crematorium is on the south side of Edinburgh in an attractive mature woodland, with the Stenhouse Burn providing a peaceful backdrop.

Services

We offer a range of funeral services to suit all. When considering cremation for a loved one, you can choose a full ceremony and service in either our main or Pentland Chapels. You can personalise the service with a choice of music, including organist if required, and photo or video tributes on our screens for an additional charge. Some families prefer a smaller shorter less formal gathering which we offer as our Simple service at the start of the day in our Pentland Chapel.  

It is also popular to have a funeral service in another location chosen by the family such as a

  • church
  • faith centre
  • funeral directors rooms

either before or after the cremation. We offer cremation without service or ceremony, sometimes called a direct cremation. Families can choose for their loved one to enter the crematorium through a chapel onto the catafalque or be delivered direct to our Courtyard entrance.
