Youngest funeral director

A 20-YEAR-OLD woman, believed to be Britain’s youngest funeral director, has said that working with the dead is “nothing out of the ordinary”.

Louise Ryan joined the family business in Newport, South Wales, in March last year and said it was natural to follow in her father’s footsteps.

Ryan, who first saw a corpse at the age of 13, insists dead bodies are nothing to be scared of.
