SAIFThe National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) is a trade association whose members are all independent funeral directors. The funeral service they offer is not part of a national or international conglomerate or chain, but is privately owned and managed. In fact, a large proportion of our members funeral homes have been run by the same family for generations.
Independent funeral directors exist solely on their reputation for delivering a first class service. By choosing a SAIF member when the need arises, you are therefore assured of a trusted and caring professional who is dedicated to serving the needs of the community.

BIFDThe British Institute of Funeral Directors was formed in 1981 by a group of highly experienced, qualified Funeral Directors to provide an organisation which cared for professionally qualified individuals working within the Funeral Industry. Its main aim is to promote education within the profession. 
We have a 'Licence to Practice’, which is issued to those members of the Institute who are committed to Continuous Professional Development.

NAFD logoThe National Association of Funeral Directors introduced The Diploma in Funeral Directing to help maintain the highest standards throughout the funeral service, and it is now acknowledged throughout the profession as the 'Gold Standard'.
The Diploma in Funeral Directing can only be awarded when students have a comprehensive knowledge of the essential duties of a Funeral Director and an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of funeral directing, gained over a minimum of two years within the profession.  Candidates should have practical experience as a Funeral Director and in the implementation of the Code of Practice.

Winners2004 saw Woollard and Kent funeral Services win this prestigious national title in connection with all the work that Mark and his staff do within the local community.
This was awarded unanimously by the judging panel at SAIF which now allows us to carry the logo with great pride.

 

MemoriesA memorial website enables friends and family to come together, not only in sharing memories and thoughts, but in supporting each other during the long and painful grieving process. Some people will also use their site to pass on information to family & friends about the funeral and later on anniversaries and other important occasions. A growing number are even being used to try to help raise money for good causes in memory of their loved one.

Much loved

 

Woollard and Kent are members of the Whitstable Business Club
