The Role of Your Funeral Director
As a SAIF member we are expected to provide a professional service in line with our Code of Practice. To find out more about SAIF, click here.
We will advise you each step of the way, discussing with you all the options and ensuring you are clear as to the costs involved. We are there to support you and guide you on what you need to do and how to go about it.
We will take care of the deceased, discuss the funeral arrangements and options available to you, deal with all the logistics and paperwork involved, and act as the ‘master of ceremonies’ on the day of the funeral.
Many people prefer the traditional style of funeral. However, increasingly, people are preferring to opt for an alternative style of funeral.

The choice will be dependent on the individual’s preferences
A Green Funeral
Typically where the deceased is buried in a natural area using a coffin made of sustainable materials
To reflect the way the deceased lived and to bring a unique style to their funeral
Where burials take place in dedicated woodland sites
