Our Membership of SAIF
We are proud members of SAIF - Society of Allied and Independent
Funeral Directors providing:
When you choose an Independent Funeral Director you are choosing a locally owned funeral director. The independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of personal service to local communities. They are deeply committed to upholding professional standards.
What's in a name?
In all forms of business today there are large international companies that have grown to corporate levels through taking over smaller firms. The funeral profession is no exception. Many established family businesses have become part of such entities, often there isn't a change of name therefore making it difficult to distinguish between the family owned firm and the conglomerate - if you're unsure ask. It's important that you know who you are speaking to - an independent funeral director or a branch of a conglomerate.
Devoted to families, not profits
Large concerns answer to shareholders. We answer to you. In our locally owned firm there is no pressure from head office to increase profits. We know our business will do well when we serve you well.
A Society that exists to help society
We are proud to be members of the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, the only professional organisation in the UK exclusively dedicated to serving the local independent funeral director and his or her community. Some 55% of funerals throughout the country are arranged by independents.
