100 years of women's rights!

In celebration of 100 years since Emmeline Pankhurst and the suffragettes fought for women’s rights in the workplace, in politics and in society in general I thought I’d post this picture of what appears to be a Victorian or Edwardian female undertaker! It is thanks to the suffragettes that the funeral industry can boast some excellent female funeral directors up and down the UK and across the world. Women make such an invaluable contribution to the funeral industry due to their natural empathy and kindness towards others in distress.

I am proud to work along some great femal death care professionals. Everything from mortuary attendants, crematorium staff, funeral directors, embalmers and funeral celebrants. They are all fantastic and do the industry and themselves extremely proud.
