We’re here for you, not them

~ We’re the consumer group that stands clear of the funeral industry. That’s what makes us different. 

~ We earn no money from advertising or commissions. We’re not in a commercial relationship with anybody. We’re skint and proud of it.

~ That’s why you can trust us. We are free to say exactly what we think – and we do.


~  And you can join the debate on reforms to training for people in the funeral industry –

there’s lots of food for thought in this recent blog post and the comments on it.
