SAIF’s response to the Competition & Markets Authority report on the funeral profession

October 24, 2018   //   No Comments

The Competition and Markets Authority recently released the findings of its research into the funeral market, along with a summary of responses from organisations, businesses and the public, of which SAIF was one.  The papers point to cultural norms dictating the way the funeral market works, rather than a conspiracy by the funeral profession to exploit bereaved people. Nevertheless, at SAIF we can see why this might be problematic, given that there is an expectation that everyone has a funeral when they die.
