SAIF was established in 1989 and represents more than 870 privately owned, independent funeral homes across the UK.

We work hard within the profession to promote best practice and protect the interests of our members and their local communities.

Along with representing the views of our members at a national and local level we also provide training and education programmes to ensure they continue to meet the highest of standards.

By choosing a SAIF member, bereaved families can be assured of a compassionate, professional approach, under pinned by our industry leading Code of Practice.

The independent funeral director has a long and proud history of personal service to local communities. Here are just some of the benefits of choosing a SAIF member:

  • Carrying on the family tradition is a way of life for many firms deeply committed to upholding professional standards.
  • All members agree to follow a strict Code of Practice and they must all undergo regular inspections to ensure they are maintaining the highest of standards.
  • SAIF members are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office and shareholders.
  • They can be flexible and responsive to an individual’s needs – providing a highly personal and compassionate service.
  • Whether it’s advice when choosing a pre-paid funeral plan or information on the choice of funeral services available and costs, SAIF members fully understand the sensitivity of such decisions.

In 2017 Brian established his own insurance broking business – Unicorn IB Ltd (Unicorn) - and the SAIFInsure product range is now offered through Unicorn.


Brian is building a team around the requirements of Saif and it’s membership. The business is led by Brian and backed up by a team of experienced insurance professionals
