FIAT-IFTA is the only internationally governed Funeral Federation with National, Active and Associate Members in more than 80 Countries.
Since 1969, the Baltzer family has run the funeral business in Taastrup with Birgit in the lead. For a number of years, Svend-Erik had previously driven Vanløse Ligkistemagasin (now: Vanløse Begravelsesforretning) together with his parents H.P. and Kirsten Baltzer.
The passion for helping the relatives to have a beautiful farewell continued in the third generation: Svend-Erik and Birgit's daughter-in-law, Jossie Vilma Baltzer, have since April 2012 driven the business.
H. P. Baltzer was co-founder of Danske Bedemænd Copenhagen's department in 1961, and contributed for many years to raising ethics throughout the industry.
Svend-Erik Baltzer was also deeply involved in the association work for many years and was among others Chairman of Danske Bedemænd and primus motor for the development of an industry-oriented IT-System, which is still widely used among the country's recruits.
Birgit Baltzer is a very well-known face among relatives. Over the years, she has held numerous positions of trust and chairmanship, most recently (2006-2012) as president of the European Federation of Funeral Services (EFFS).
