The focus of this research is the quantitative description of funeral directors in terms of: general health and mood; attitudes towards death; and, work and coping strategies. Within this investigation comparisons were made of those who are and those who are not involved in disaster work. The results show that the whole sample had low anxiety and concern regarding death. Symptoms of psychological distress were more evident in those not involved in disaster work. Whereas those who were involved in disaster work showed lower levels of psychological distress, more effective coping, and work practices which are in keeping with recommendations of previous researchers.
