Welcome to the Association of Green Funeral Directors (AGFD)
The Association has three main objectives:
- To help members of the public find funeral homes in their area which are willing to provide greener options in the funerals they carry out.
- To encourage funeral directors (FDs) to become more green-minded in all aspects of their work and help bring natural funerals into the mainstream.
- To give donations to charities which the membership vote for in their AGM each year.

The Inauguration of Justin Burgess as the 1st President of the Association took place on 12th June 2009 at the National Funeral Exhibition at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry. Presidents of the three other kindred Funeral Director Associations were in attendance.
