More Than Words’ list of funeral directors is a comprehensive source of contact information for decision makers at funeral homes across the country.

In the UK, the funeral market is estimated to be worth approximately £1bn annually, with approximately 600,000 funerals each year.

The UK funeral home sector is divided into:

  • current industry leaders in the UK are The Co-operative Group and Dignity Caring Funeral Services, national association groups, that conduct about 25% of all funerals in the country,
  • major chain groups, like Funeral Partners Limited, and
  • independent funeral directors tend to focus more on providing low costs and a customer-focused experience.

In funeral homes, funeral directors are often in charge of purchasing decisions.

Selling to funeral directors

Traditional burial funerals are stated to be the third most expensive purchase within a person’s lifetime.

The cost of dying in the UK was £9,263 in 2020 including the funeral service, send-off costs and professional fees.

For the families of a recently deceased person, finding an affordable funeral home that offers professional, tailored funerals is important.

Through companies like Beyond Life and Funeral Guide, consumers now have more resources for comparing different funeral directors.

This means funeral homes have to keep their business competitive to appeal to those that have recently lost a loved one.

If you can help them to lower overall funeral cost, or add special detail to any funeral arrangement could be their key to survival.

Businesses selling products and services to funeral directors can benefit from this need to stay competitive.

Market your business as a way to help funeral directors offer lower prices or more value.

In an increasingly connected age, funeral directors need long-term solutions that will help them serve their target market better.
