    Thanks for dropping in, Jeanne. It’s dangerous to generalise – there are lots of brilliant male undertakers. But undertaking got to be a very blokey business, and that now needs plenty of leavening. I think.

    I was pleased to see you being quoted in the article about women getting into the funeral business. I think the public will, in time, agree with you.
