It is a little known and quite shocking fact that anyone in the UK can set themselves up as a Funeral Director without any previous experience, training or qualifications. The British Institute of Funeral Directors (BIFD), the pre-eminent provider of education within the funeral profession is aiming to end this state of affairs. All BIFD members have achieved an appropriate level of professional training, and their Licence to Practice is only granted to professionals who follow the Institute's requirements for annual Continuous Professional Development.
In addition to this, the National Association of Funeral Directors provide nationally recognised qualifications for Individual funeral professionals, as well as assessing and approving funeral homes who meet the high standards required and subscribe to their code of practice for a funeral service. Therefore, by choosing a funeral professional who is a member of the British Institute of Funeral Directors and holds recognised qualifications through and is an approved member of the National Association of Funeral Directors you can be certain that you are choosing a competent and qualified practitioner - the best qualified professional in your area for your funeral service.
