UK supplier membership

The NAFD is the largest and longest-established trade association within the funeral profession, representing 3,900 funeral homes throughout the United Kingdom who, between them, conduct over 80% of all UK funerals.

Membership comprises a complete cross-section of funeral businesses, from the independent family-owned and run firms, to large Co-operatives, Groups, and overseas members.  The Association also attracts members from the service and manufacturing supply sectors (both at home and abroad) that, between them, provide all the supplies, equipment and support facilities required to run a successful funeral directing business.

The National Association of Funeral Directors is here to support its members and can offer you the most comprehensive benefits package within the funeral sector (see enclosed information) but, most importantly, NAFD membership can add a real return for investment for you and your firm.
