Throughout 2015 Nicholas O’Hara’s team have been providing training to staff from nursing/care homes, GP surgeries and trainee nurses on the role of a funeral director.

An invitation was sent to many local care homes and at this time around 200 staff have attended with many more booked for days through the rest of the year. The days have included a tour of their premises, discussions on the many roles a funeral director undertakes, providing information and knowledge on some of the procedures involved a tour of a local crematorium and an embalming demonstration in the companies new state of the art theatre and mortuary. This final part of the day has been the most interesting and rewarding for the attendees to see why we care for each deceased in this hygienic and respectful way.

At the end of each session certificates are given to each attendee in recognition of their attendance and experience.
