Why choose an independent funeral director?

February 21, 2017   //   No Comments

The death of a loved one is understandably an emotional and upsetting experience.

Yet at this very moment of deepest grief important and difficult decisions still have to be made.

What steps should be taken in caring for the deceased? What arrangements – if any – are already in place for the funeral? What were the deceased’s final wishes? How would they like to be remembered?

This is where the compassion, professionalism and commitment of an independent funeral director can be a huge help – making the most difficult of times a little more bearable.

SAIF has more than 850 members across 1,500 offices throughout the UK – widely respected for their commitment to the highest of standards and a caring, traditional approach, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

By choosing to use the services of an independent funeral director you are enlisting the help of a trusted professional – many of whom have served their communities for generations.

They are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office and shareholders but can be flexible and responsive to individual needs, providing a highly personal and compassionate service.

All members adhere to an industry-leading Code of Practice and agree to undertake regular inspections as part of a strict programme of quality assurance.
