Why are funeral directors called undertakers?
Funeral directors go by many names. Undertakers is one of them, they are also commonly called morticians.
Hi there, in the UK funeral directors do not acutally need to hold any formal qualifications. However, there is a National Diploma in Funeral Directing - which many within the UK industry now hold. Alternatively, many funeral directors are family owned businesses and hence a lot of training tends to be inhouse and individual to the particular company.
