Last week saw us exhibiting for the first time at the National Funeral Exhibition. It was a great opportunity to meet up with other businesses, catch up with old friends and make new ones, and to get a feel for trends and innovations in the funeral industry.
What springs to mind when you think of a funeral? Perhaps it's mourners dressed in black, a funeral director in a top hat carrying a cane, a glossy black hearse and a wooden coffin topped with floral tributes? And you’d be right. In many ways, the traditional British funeral hasn't changed much since Victorian times and you could be forgiven for thinking that it is the only way to say goodbye.
