We provide a forum for the discussion of funeral and bereavement issues

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Funerals and Bereavement brings together all those involved in funerals, burials, and cremation to discuss the approach to the many challenging issues which face the sector. Our aim is to provide a first port of call for anyone looking for advice, information, or assistance from any representative organisation of this vital sector.

On this site you will be able to find information on the Parliamentary Officers of the APPG, members of the Deceased Management Advisory Group who make up the associate members of the APPG, our research, briefings and latest news, minutes of previous meetings of the APPG and information on upcoming meetings, and details to contact us on.

We will all need the support of the funeral sector at some point in our lives. The aim and objective of the APPG is to provide the support for those who need our services, create a better understanding of what we do and how we do it, and ensure a better understanding of the key issues and challenges that face different parts of the sector.

Moving forward the APPG will be reaching out to government, parliamentarians, and the public with a view to raising greater awareness of these challenges, and providing support, information, and solutions in order to address them.

Do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to know more about the work of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Funerals and Bereavement.
