As a funeral director you help people through very difficult times, and if anything goes wrong, it’s important that your business can keep running smoothly.

The insurance you need depends on your business and the risks you face, but these are popular covers for funeral directors:
Public liability insurance is important for anyone who operates out of a funeral home that welcomes clients onto its premises. This will cover compensation payments and legal fees if a client or another third party makes an injury or damage claim against you.
Stock insurance will not only protect your coffins, urns and other stock against both damage and theft, but the relatives of the deceased will have peace of mind knowing that their effects are covered too.
Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that have staff, so it’s an important consideration if your funeral home employs anyone, even on a casual basis. It can cover compensation claims made by staff if they’ve suffered illness or injury as a result of their work.
Business equipment insurance may be particularly important if you have a mortuary on site and need your embalming equipment protected. It can also cover cleaning machines and removal equipment against theft and damage.
