The National Association of Funeral Directors is a truly independent Trade Association with the broadest membership within the funeral profession, including more than 3,200 funeral homes nationwide, suppliers to the profession and overseas funeral directing businesses.
In 2005 we celebrated a Century of service, supporting funeral directors and their clients. The Association is proud of its traditions and achievements within the profession.
The lion logo is acknowledged as a ‘kite mark’ of quality assurance, guaranteeing the highest professional standards.
Member companies range from small family businesses to Public Limited Companies and Co-operatives, conducting in excess of 500,000 funerals every year.
The NAFD takes the lead in education and is also responsible for initiating professional development programmes.
The Association represents the funeral profession at all levels of Government in respect of legislation and campaigns on issues affecting not only funeral directors, but also the bereaved.
It provides informed opinion to Parliamentarians, Government agencies and consumer groups on all funeral matters.
NAFD members enjoy a wide range of business support services, which are continually reviewed as the NAFD seeks to improve the benefits available to its members.
