Help wanted with funerals research

Very little research has been carried out to establish what constitutes a “good” funeral, and how best to support people when they are arranging a funeral. Sarah Jones, from Full Circle Funerals, is leading a study to identify which aspects of funerals people find helpful and to see whether funerals have an impact on long-term wellbeing. It is hoped that this knowledge will then be used to support people in the best way possible.

The research project is supported, and endorsed by, an advisory committee with representatives from the University of York, Leeds Beckett university, ICCM (Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management), the Good Funeral Guide and SAIF (the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors).
