Nick Douch, managing director of Dorset’s Douch Family Funeral Directors, was among others from around the world who travelled to the meeting of what is the world’s oldest and largest association of family-owned funeral directors.

Sessions focused on important issues concerning the funeral industry, such as providing exceptional service, timely business advice and best practices.

Members of the association are expected to operate according to specific standards so they can provide the public with reliable, high-quality funeral services and funeral-related information.

“This was my first opportunity to attend an AGM,” said Nick Douch, “and I was thoroughly impressed with the ideas learnt from other funeral directors from around the world.

“It is interesting to compare the industry in this country with the way it works in other nations.”

At the event he presented the president, Charles ‘Chip’ Billow, with a centenary collar, a gift from the European membership.

Robert J Paterkiewicz, executive director and CEO of Selected Independent Funeral Homes, said, “For 100 years our members have pledged to uphold the Selected Independent Funeral Homes’ Code of Good Practice and are committed to the important responsibility they have to the families and communities they serve.

“It’s a tradition of trust that Douch Family Funeral Directors has been a part of for many years.”
