National Association of Funeral Directors

Our Membership

Here at Abacus Funerals we are very proud to be the only privately owned Funeral Directors within the Gravesend area who are members of the NationalAssociation of Funeral Directors. This is not a membership that is not given out to any Funeral Director, there are rigorous inspections to maintain a high level of practice in accordance with the Code of Practice set out by the National Association.
We take this Code of Practice and blend it with our unique service and values that we feel only an Independent Funeral Director can achieve.

The Code of Practice

The Code of Practice sets out the high standard of service that bereaved families may expect in their dealings with a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors, including key requirements in respect of the funeral director’s professional conduct.

It also deals with advertising and marketing, price information, estimates, final accounts and publicity.

Funeral Director Members of the Association are bound by this robust Code of Practice  the terms of which incorporate twelve key principles and is strictly monitored by a team of Standards and Quality Managers to ensure compliance.
