The Charter

  • Is a commitment to improving the service by confronting rather than disguising the death experience, and by reducing ignorance
  • Is intended to define the rights of every individual who experiences bereavement
  • Will set standards of the service related to burial, cremation and funerals generally. It is a written statement of what can be expected and this can be measured for judging the service received
  • Recognises that bereavement services are critical to the health of the nation. That the benefits of a meaningful funeral are immeasurable, influencing both the physical and mental wellbeing of us all
  • Will give the bereaved greater influence over the arrangement of funerals, thereby controlling costs and offering more satisfaction
