    Surly there’s stiff local competition?

    There is always going to be competition but there's actually not that many independent funeral director's around the Sutton Coldfield area most are actually run buy Dignity and they can be very expensive.

    Business partners can be a terrible idea.

    Disagreements, lack of communication, even splitting the partnership apart.

    You are seriously better off with employees rather than partners - you can at least somewhat control employees.

    Sorry I don't think I worded that correctly we will have employees but I'm looking for one or two business partners that can also invest money in to the business.

    The business partners advice still stands.

    For investment you are better looking at friends and family. Once established its easier to sell investment in a successful business with proven profits to strangers.
