    The Funeral Directors Association welcomes a review to give grieving families more rights when funerals go wrong

    The Funeral Directors Association welcomes a review to give grieving families more rights when funerals go wrong


    High-profile mistakes include Christchurch mother Michelle Bishop chasing a funeral home because her daughter wasn't embalmed properly.

    Association CEO David Moger says new entrants with no qualifications or standards, are entering the industry.

    He says literally anyone can sign a form, set up a Facebook account, buy a car and be in business.

    Moger says they won't give a meaningful farewell.

    The Health Ministry review closes at end of month.
