About the IoCF

Management Council

The Institute is supported by notable Council members who are either highly experienced working Civil Funeral Celebrants themselves or who have been invited to represent important related organisations. Each member of Council brings invaluable experience to the Council who work together towards the Institute's objectives, which aim to support members and continually improve the quality of funeral ceremonies in the UK.
