So the GFG has a CEO. Who’d have thought it!

With thanks to the lovely Barbara Chalmers at Final Fling for making the announcement today – see blogpost here.

Looking forward to good times at GFG Towers as we continue celebrating the best in funeralworld while keeping a watchful eye out for the less than worthy.

Onwards and upwards!

oOH! ‘The Good Funeral Guide CIC’ has a new CEO. Congratulations Fran, that’s superb news. Wonderful news too that Charles has dusted off the carriage clock on the mantelpiece. From the Natural Death Centre crew

Great collaboration and to be honest it was a damn shame to lose the GFG after all the work that went into it to create it.
Onwards and upwards and if we can ever assist here in the Midlands just let Carrie and Fran know!

Best of luck

Congratulations Fran, and its such welcome news. Your comments in The Times article on funerals were amongst the few that were correct and sensible. Now we have the dynamic duo, the future looks rosy.
