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.
If you are concerned about the professional standards of Funeral Directors you can visit the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.
