Guild Members


We are delighted to have so many people join the Good Funeral Guild and welcome anyone interested in joining – the more interested, intelligent people getting connected the better!

If you’re interested in becoming a Guild member, read more about it here.

Just as a caveat though, membership of the Good Funeral Guild is purely a personal choice by an individual, and does not indicate that The Good Funeral Guide in any way endorses either the person concerned or the business they represent.
