NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Amidst growing concern over an oversaturated funeral industry, funeral directors across the nation are urging for a moratorium to be implemented.

The call comes as funeral homes struggle to keep up with demand amidst an influx of new establishments and increased competition. 
 
According to industry insiders, the funeral business has seen a significant rise in the number of funeral homes in recent years, leading to intense competition . 
 
Managing director of Demeritte’s Funeral Home,  Llewellyn Astwood is calling on government to intervene. 
 

Industry professionals are also highlighting the need for regulatory oversight to ensure ethical practices and standards are upheld across the board. Now there have been reports of unscrupulous practices by some funeral homes, further tarnishing the reputation of the industry as a whole. 
 
Vaugn Jones, a veteran funeral director with over three decades of experience, shares his concerns. 

The call for a moratorium aims to address these pressing issues by temporarily halting the issuance of new licenses for funeral homes. This would allow existing establishments to regroup, stabilize, and focus on providing exceptional care to families during their time of need. 
 
Now we spoke to President of the Funeral Directors Association Kirsh Ferguson, regarding his feed back on the matter. He says while he agrees with the funeral directors, he adds there must be proper laws in place to protect the integrity of the industry.
