The Government’s response to the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) market investigation of funeral director and crematoria provision was published on 7 April 2021.  The Government engaged with the CMA both before and after publication, primarily on the CMA’s recommendation on improving the effectiveness of the funeral sector’s self-regulation; and also on the CMA’s monitoring of the provision of pricing information by both funeral directors and crematoria.
