Brechin City Funeral Directors and Monumental Masons have been accepted into the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF), a trade association whose members are all independent funeral directors.
Brian Dewar of the Brechin business said: “I am proud that we have been accepted into this.
“To be accepted as an independent family-owned business is an achievement for a new company.
“We must conform to SAIF’s charter which gives more peace of mind to the public.”
To become a member of SAIF, a firm must have a trading history and/or extensive experience and/or qualifications in funeral service, must agree to comply to the code of practice and must undertake a premises inspection.
Once all of the above criteria have been met the Society’s executive committee then meet to accept or reject an application.
“Our promise to you is that we will make this difficult time as easy as possible for you to bear, from your first consultation to the completion of the funeral, and always with respect of all your wishes,” added Brian.
