Youngest Funeral Director

This girl is Britain’s youngest funeral director – and she’s deadly serious about her new job. Rachael Ryan, 16, is balancing books with embalming as she takes on the family business while studying at sixth form. She started helping her dad when she was just 13, carrying out clerical duties. And for the past year she’s been UNDER-taking a more hands-on role by helping at funerals, witnessing the embalming process and learning how to line a coffin.
