Czech trade inspectors have grave concerns about funeral services

The Czech Trade Inspectorate say it has found continued malpractice in the field of funeral services offered in the country. It said that around half of the 115 checks on services offered by companies between the start of September and end of November last year found faults.

Often these concerned the charges described and made on customers and the failure to confirm and outline the orders received.

The office said the sector had been a problem over the previous four years as well. Because of the failure to improve, the office said it will step up checks on funeral services through 2018.
