Its a hard life being an organiser. Last night for example, I had to spend the whole evening in a club auditioning a band for the NFE entertainment night. They are called Chain of Fools and the say they are the hardest working band in the world. Well that might not be strictly true, but they certainly [...]
Funeral Director Monthly, the British funeral industry’s most prestigious magazine, is launching a national photography competition for anyone involved in the British funeral business.
There are two categories, funeral related or an open category for virtually any subject, and final judging will take place at NFE 2011 in June.
You’ll have to wait for the January edition of the magazine for [...]
The NFE now has its own group on LinkedIn, the professional networking site. Its just one more way to keep in touch with us
The group is administered by Kimberley, our business development manager
I have just spent nearly a whole day protecting the registration page of the main site from so called bots, the robots that troll every site trying to pick up email addresses and then spam them with everything from marital aids to water coolers.

This has absolutely no relevance to funerals or shows, but its amusing, at least to me.
We are redecorating our bedroom, (correction, my wife is) and we’ve decided to turn the bed round, pointing south to north. We tried it out for a couple of nights before decorating and both found we slept better, so I decided [...]
I’m sitting in the office looking out at a dark wintry sky with snow on the ground, but I’m thinking about ice cream and sandcastles and donkey rides on the beach. That’s the theme of our family day for 2011. The kids are going love it, while you get on with business at the exhibition. As for [...]
Funeral directors must be having problems with the snow right now and I guess a lot of rearranging has had to take place in some areas. Perhaps the next range of hearses will have an optional snow plough attachment. I looked up “funeral in the snow” on the net and came up with this picture by [...]
