Undertakers — what are they really like?

Friday, 9 March 2012





“In numberless instances the interment of the dead is in the hands of miscreants, whom it is almost flattery to compare to the vulture, or the foulest carrion bird.”


Writer in Leisure Hour, 1862

    They know they’re loved, Sweetpea, and they are at ease with themselves, with what they do, and with the world. They chuckle when they read stuff like this. The ones who suffer from status anxiety or a troubled conscience, they’re the fds who blench or vituperate. Do bear in mind that the only industry body that refuses to talk to the GFG is… SAIF.

    What about the good indys? Some of the noblest creatures you could meet. They’ll be thinking we don’t love them anymore. Which we do. Charles, please find a balancing quote full of love and admiration!
