British Institute of Funeral Directors
The British Institute of Funeral Directors was established in 1982 by a group of funeral directors who believed in education and training for their profession, so that members of the public seeking to use the services of a funeral director should be able to choose wisely and get the best possible professional services on offer. The BIFD ensures best practice through continual professional development.

National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors
The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) is a trade association whose members are all independent funeral directors. The funeral service they offer is not part of a national or international conglomerate or chain, but is privately owned and managed. In fact, a large proportion of our members’ funeral homes have been run by the same family for generations. By choosing a SAIF member when the need arises, you are assured of a trusted and caring professional who is dedicated to serving the needs of the community.
