Welcome to the 2020 edition of the Manual of Funeral Directing. Use the download link under ‘Course content’ to access the specific .pdf editions that cover advice for England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Navigation around the manuals have been made simple and clear; to access a specific section, simply click on the chapter via the contents page or if you would like to revert back to the beginning, click on the section header for each chapter.
If you are an NAFD Member access to the Manual is free through the Member’s website. For non NAFD members the cost is £595.00.
We plan to update the Manual every six months and would like your help to keep it up to date. Email any changes, suggestions and amends to email@example.com.
If you need a single, specific chapter and cannot extract it from the full edition, please contact Su Lewis on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will provide it for you.
