Regulate UK Funerals started this petition to UK Government and relevant devolved bodies

We the undersigned call on the Government to ensure all funeral directors across the UK are statutorily regulated.

Following a recently reported situation in Medway

https://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/i-stole-my-mother-in-laws-body-188893/

it has become clear there is a strong need to introduce statutory regulation for funeral directors.

Most people on seeing this story have been surprised that there isn’t statutory regulation. It is noted that there is statutory regulation on funeral directors in Scotland but no other part of the UK.

The two main trade bodies NAFD and SAIF support a large number of service providers and carry out regulation style checks but without statutory regulation the risk remains of a repeat of the situation in Medway.
