Funeral facilitators are an alternative to funeral directors, they can offer a little more flexibility than a funeral director.

  • a charter member will assist you in arranging an independent funeral
  • nurses may assist in the preparation of the body, particularly if the person died at home or in a hospice
  • certain aspects of a traditional funeral may be unavailable - you may have to provide transport and make a coffin
  • all required services and resulting costs need to be organised directly with the cemetery or crematorium

Green Funeral Directors

They promote biodegradable coffins and have a more personal approach.
