Which? report finds poor practice in funeral homes

questionmarkThere is a new Which? report published today entitled 10 things you should know about funerals.

It reveals that ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’ advice was given by an astounding 70% of funeral directors when approached by mystery shoppers.

The report is significant, in that it opens readers’ minds to the operation of funeral homes, drawing their attention in particular to comparing costs between funeral directors, transparency of ownership, the fact that independents may be cheaper, asking for what you want, and requesting price lists.

Kingfisher Independent Funeral Services is pleased to say that it complies with all the findings of the Which? report.  We openly quote our prices, and include these on our website so that you can price an entire funeral before you make any decisions.
