Local Authority Visits

Spring/Summer 2024

Examples of extremely poor standards at funeral homes have led to the Government’s announcement that local authorities are to visit funeral homes in England. This page contains information to help SAIF Members prepare for potential visits.

The visits have begun in England. SAIF is aware that local authorities in Wales will also be arranging visits but we have been given no timeframe yet.

Information is listed under the headings below. Please contact SAIF on 0345 2306777 or email info@saif.org.uk for further help.
