A ROSYTH funeral directors is believed to be the subject of a police fraud investigation.

It's understood detectives are conducting inquiries into Stevenson Funeral Directors, which has premises on Queensferry Road as well as in Cardenden and Kirkcaldy, after an allegation was reported last month.

It's thought the investigation centres round claims that money for some pre-paid funeral plans weren't paid to the trustees of the plans, Avalon.

A spokesperson for Avalon said: “Avalon have been made aware of the situation by Dunfermline police, who have requested that all enquiries are passed directly to them at Dunfermline Police Station.”

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “Police Scotland is investigating a report of a fraudulent scheme linked to a business in Rosyth, which was received in September 2019. Enquiries remain ongoing."

The Press invited Stevenson Funeral Directors to respond but no-one was available for comment.
