A new innovative Irish company has booked space at NFE.
Their website says:
Mourning and the grieving process following the death of a loved one are among the most important of traditions. The wake and the funeral are very important in this tradition. We have all attended wakes and funerals where we did not know [...]
The new report commissioned by Cooperative Funeralcare highlighted a growing interest in the webcasting of funerals. I must admit that when I first heard of this concept in America a few years ago, I really wasn’t sure but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Imagine for example, someone who has died in a nursing home. It may be [...]
A major cultural shift in the UK’s approach to one of the most fundamental social rites, the funeral service, is confirmed today (24 January 2011) in a new, wide-ranging report, which highlights that over half of today’s funerals are now a celebration of life. The Ways We Say Goodbye is the first study of its [...]
More details are emerging about the Saturday night entertainment. You’ll be off on a charabanc mystery tour to the NFE holiday camp, situated somewhere within the Warwickshire countryside. We cant tell you where, otherwise it wouldn’t be a mystery, but you can guess exactly what the evening will be like. We can tell you that a panel of ladies will be judging [...]
Trying to find ways to save the world by cutting energy levels, using less water or choosing the right sustainable products for your company or at home is just like walking through a maze. That’s exactly what will happen when you visit our sustainability feature at this year’s NFE. If you get lost on the way we have guides to help you [...]
Continuing the British holiday theme at NFE 2011, Saturday night will have everything you remember from your youth. Kiss me quick hats, a ride in a charabanc to a mystery venue, Candy floss (maybe!), a knobbly knees competition (probably), live music, food, but most of all guaranteed ridiculous fun
The new Co-operative Funeralcare TV advert is very different to the last one. It has ordinary people (well, actors portraying ordinary people I think) discussing their choices. The Co-op wouldn’t have run it if they didn’t think the public were ready and it shows that many more people are ready to plan for their final celebration. There will be some who [...]
NFE 2011 has begun the biggest campaign we’ve ever run to attract visitors to the show. Articles appear every month in The Funeral Director Monthly and we’re also being featured in all the major magazines, both here and overseas.
A registration card will drop through the letterbox of virtually all British funeral directors in March, but you can register now [...]
We are finally into 2011, and less than six months before the next NFE. Since getting back from the Christmas holidays we’ve booked another four (oops five, we just had another one confirm!) stands and had lots of enquiries so we are looking forward to a bumper show. We’ve also been working on the NAFD stand alongside Alan Slater and we’ve [...]
