Start a Funeral Business


Develop Your Business Plan

Starting Your Own Funeral Business

2 days

This course is about starting your own business in the funeral sector. The tutors have all set up their own successful funeral businesses to a very high standard with long and proven track records.

This course offers you the opportunity to look at your market proposition, what you need to set up, how much things cost, setting up premises, the cash flow of a funeral business and some legal aspects.

We set up our funeral business from scratch, without prior knowledge of the sector.

We wish we had had access to the information we can give you now. We will help you better understand your options. Setting up your own funeral business means that you can do things exactly as you want to.

Having the right business model is vital for running a client centred, flexible and transparent funeral business. We explore different models.

“The Green Fuse funeral course was incredibly useful and very real. If you want to start a funeral business go and do this course with Green Fuse. When we filled in our first funeral form we remembered the game we played of how to complete them. It was very good.”

Ash Rao. Moksh Funerals.
