localfuneral.co.uk enters next stage

As localfuneral.co.uk takes on a new look, its successful SAIFCharter pilot phase is now being extended out to allow Independents from across the UK to sign up and help provide national coverage.

The site, which helps families find a local independent funeral director at the time of need, has been opened up to all SAIF members as well as Golden Charter Premier members who are also part of another established trade association. This will provide the UK-wide coverage the site needs to meet bereaved families’ needs and compete effectively in this growing market.

Julian Walker, SAIFCharter Chairman, said: “We are now in a strong position to raise awareness of the service in many regions across the UK, as well as nationally. As a result of this increased marketing activity, we can be sure that the volume of enquiries will increase.”

He added: “Early adopters always have an advantage and as localfuneral.co.uk moves forwards it will inevitably reflect the views of the companies involved in its early stages.”

The site’s new brand is based on the core promise of offering simple funeral solutions. Through independent funeral directors, it aims to distinguish itself by offering families expertise, independence, trust and innovation.

Funeral directors interested in getting involved in this service, created specifically for the independent sector, can find out more from your local Golden Charter representative.
