Campaigners across the UK have warned that unregulated funeral directors can treat families with disregard.
The campaigners are making people aware of this as there has been a rise in funeral costs. According to reports, the average funeral cost has increased by over £300 in a year. As a result of the ‘high’ funeral costs, it is reported that 4 million people have faced financial hardship as a result of fees incurred.
As a result of the increased costs, more mourners are looking for cheaper funeral directors in a bid to not financial burden the family. However, with many different standards in the industry, this has led to many people getting incredibly poor funeral care services for their dead family member.
There is a perception that all funeral care is the same however this is not the case and quite rightly the mourners deserve a high level of care for their family members. In the past 14 years, the number of funeral locations has increased by 1500 up to over 6000.
At Joseph C Roberts, we take pride in offering outstanding aftercare service for those in our care. We believe that the care of deceased should be as good, if not better, than the care of those alive in hospitals and practice this too.
