Choosing a funeral directing firm that is a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors can give peace of mind at a distressing time. The National Association of Funeral Directors demands high professional standards of its members; the 4,000 UK funeral homes in NAFD membership are required to abide by a strict Code of Practice and are monitored regularly to ensure a high quality of service is maintained. Whatever your circumstances, in your time of loss you can turn to an NAFD member firm, for their help in arranging a funeral that will be a fitting farewell.
It’s important to feel confident that you, and the person who has died, will be professionally and compassionately cared for and that the services offered are both within your budget and include a range of choices that are right for you. Take your time and talk to several NAFD members to find the one that you feel most comfortable with. If you find this difficult to do, why not ask a friend or relative to help with initial enquiries? Many NAFD members now publish prices and details of services online, or will email copies of their brochure, offering a chance to think about what you might want and check how much it might cost before meeting with the funeral director in person.
