The Partnership Podcast featuring George Locke

There’s a new episode of the Partnership Podcast now available featuring independent funeral director and SAIFCharter member, George Locke of R. Locke & Sons.

Covering the much talked about topics of regulation and the Golden Charter Funeral Director Agreement, George chats to host Malcolm Flanders about his thoughts on what these mean for his business and our profession.

Viewing the introduction of the Funeral Planning Authority’s strengthened rules and code of practice  as a positive move, George was happy to sign Golden Charter’s new Funeral Director Agreement as he believes it will help us smoothly transition to regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority, while also helping to protect consumers and increase their confidence in the funeral plan market.

Find out why George believes we, as funeral directors, are in a strong position for the future by listening here.

The last episode of the podcast featured SAIFCharter member Edward Poole of A.J. Sellman Family Funeral Directors and is available to listen to, along with all other past episodes, at
