Managing the Funeral Process


Turning Arrangements into Reality

Managing the Funeral Process

2 days

This course is about all the things that happen behind the scenes to bring funeral arrangements to fruition and ensure the smooth running of your funeral business.

The course covers such things as where to get cars, coffins and other resources, dealing with coroners, doctors and other professionals, paperwork in depth, booking ministers and celebrants, music, crematoria and burial grounds, costing, invoicing and more. Whereas the Funeral Arranging course is client facing, this is the office oriented information vital for your funeral directing business.

Supporting your work with robust business practices, lends confidence and efficiency to a whole host of decisions which much be made within a very short time frame.

"I can't recommend Green Fuse Funeral Director training enough. Simon, Jane, Stephen and Angie, my tutors were all so very kind and helpful. We followed a programme and were presented with a folder with everything we ever needed to know about Funeral Directing, a certificate and the reassurance that they were there should we ever need support and advice. Having completed the course I felt confident enough to go on and set up my own funeral company. The training is a mixture of both practical skills but also emotional skills too. I admire greatly their ethos and wouldn't be where I am now without this valuable training." Holly Clarke
