Funeral Directors must show their prices online
Three months’ notice has been given for all funeral directors to display a standardised price list at their premises and on their website.
Funeral directors and crematorium operators must make prices clear for customers or risk court action, the Competition and Markets Authority has ordered.
From September 16 all funeral directors must display a standardised price list at their premises and on their website, including the headline price of a funeral, the price of individual items making up the service, and the price of certain additional products and services.
Additionally, from June 17, funeral directors are not allowed to make payments to incentivise hospitals, palliative care services, hospices, care homes or similar institutions to refer customers to a particular funeral director or solicit for business through coroner and police contracts.
