Service summary

National Association of Funeral Directors

Whatever your circumstances, in your time of loss you can turn to a member of the NAFD, with confidence, to arrange a funeral that will be a fitting farewell. NAFD funeral firms are there to support you.

It is their responsibility to arrange a funeral that meets your wishes and those of the deceased, ensuring that it is both a celebration of life and a fitting farewell and complies with any legal requirements too.

The role of a funeral director is a broad service encompassing practical organisation, support and guidance to the family and liaison with a wide range of other organisations and services to ensure the funeral is properly arranged.

If you are concerned that you are unable to meet the costs of the funeral, please discuss this with the funeral director when you first meet them and they will advise you. If the person who died has not left enough money to cover the costs of the funeral and you receive any low income benefits, you may be entitled to receive help from the Department for Work and Pensions.
