Funeral Education Portsmouth

Educational and Informative

The Searson Family Funeral Service is able to offer a number of educational and informative experiences based on an extensive and diverse range of experience. We can offer professional organisations such as the NHS, Care Homes and Agents, Bereavement Support and other similar and related groups presentations and seminars tailored to meet individual requirements. We can extend informal group visits to our Funeral Home; we can even go out and visit you at your place of work or where you meet.

Professional Presentations

We have a selection of audio visual presentations that support prepared presentations with general interest:

Role of the Funeral Director

What is Modern Embalming

The Benefits of Viewing

What to do After Death

Family Support

Creating a Special Day

In addition to prepared presentations we can also tailor more individual presentations to meet more specific requirements. All presentations are supported with literature such as Hand-Out Notes, Leaflets and Booklets.

School Presentations

We have delivered assembly talks to a number of schools with an age range between 6 – 16 years. Our popular ‘I’m a Funeral Director’ talk which is tailored to suit the needs of various ages looks at the reality and not the fantasy of what we do. These talks are intended to highlight the role of our profession and to dispel myths. It is also an opportunity to make the ‘Undertaker’ more approachable and community friendly.

Funeral Speeches

Many larger organisations often require an associated professional to offer speeches to conferences; this is something else that we can provide with ease. We can tailor any type of talk, speech, presentation or seminar to any size of audience and, what’s more, we provide these FREE of CHARGE. We have even been asked to attend meal functions so an entertaining after dinner speech can be offered in a much more relaxed and informal environment.

Funeral Experience

The Searson family have delivered all types of presentations and speeches to a diverse range of audiences over the years. From a small bereavement group to a national care organisation of 2,500 people. It doesn’t matter what your educational needs are, our family is able to extend an informative, interesting and stimulating experience. We have done local and national commercial and BBC Radio, Television as well as live satellite links to groups around the world. Many newspaper and magazine articles have been published, even professional training sessions provided to colleges and universities.

If you are seeking to provide an educational session, large or small, local or national, why not contact the Searson family to see how our forward thinking family can make a difference.

Health & Safety Information

Due to the very nature of our business, health and safety plays a vital role in supporting staff and visiting public. With complex mortuary procedures, COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) is a major factor, a regulation that requires constant assessment to ensure full compliance. In addition, Manual Handling and general health and safety considerations tailored to our particular profession demand regular assessment and continuously documented. As such this section of our web site is intended for local and national authorities to have access to all our documentation to help them monitor our compliance to all the health and safety regulations.

Should you be a local authority such as Environmental Health, the Health and Safety Executive, professional trade organisations or other similar governing organisation, you can request login details to access our extensive library of compliance documentation.
