Fair Funerals pledge 2020

The Fair Funerals pledge is currently undergoing a review, and will be being re-launched in January 2020.

We’re now asking funeral directors across the UK to sign the Fair Funerals pledge 2020, and commit to the following:

  1. We will help people to find funerals that are within their means.
  2. We will be open about the price of our services, including third party costs:
  • In initial conversations.
  • Within our price lists.
  • On our website.
  1. We will be open about the amount of any deposit we require, and when this and the final balance are due:
  • In initial conversations.
  • Within our price lists.
  • On our website.

By signing the Fair Funerals pledge 2020, funeral directors will become part of a community of directors who agree to put transparency and honesty at the centre of their work, and who aspire to be the change we all want to see within the funeral industry.

To help funeral directors understand what they need to do to become signatories of the Fair Funerals pledge 2020, and how they can put the pledge into practice, we have published our Guidelines and advice for funeral directors.
