Independent Funeral Directors
Serving Dorset for over 100 years


The NAFD has been dedicated to maintaining the highest of standards throughout the funeral profession for more than a century, ensuring bereaved families receive the advice and support they need and deserve.

As members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, we are dedicated to maintain the highest standards. All our bereaved families receive the support and advice they deserve.

Our reputation for providing high standards earned us an invite to join Selected Independent Funeral Homes, a worldwide organisation of independent funeral directors who operate under strict standards and constantly strive to utilize the best professional practices. Selected-member funeral homes are run by trusted, local professionals who often are considered leaders in their communities. Many of the funeral homes are operated by multi-generation families that have a long tradition of helping people.

We put great effort into education & training for our staff. Most of our funeral directing staff are either studying towards or have passed the NAFD Diploma in Funeral Directing.


A worldwide professional association of independent, locally-owned funeral homes. Its members operate under strict standards.
