Funeral directors and funeral home owners constantly strive to improve themselves for their community and the families they serve.
Unfortunately, they don’t often get the recognition they deserve. That’s why Frazer Consultants regularly features the accomplishments of funeral directors and funeral homes in our Funeral Home Happenings blog. See what your peers and colleagues have been up to lately!
If you or someone you know deserves recognition, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We’d love to feature you or them in our next installment of Funeral Home Happenings!

As a dedicated funeral director / embalmer, I miss the work terribly. It is possible that the three Funeral Home owners that I formed directly for were uniquely difficult to work for. Abusive language, lack communication, uncompensated scheduled time off that was commandeered, etc. combined with remarkably low pay pushed me back into the construction industry. Funeral Home Owners have earned a poor reputation.
I maintain my licenses in the expectation of returning to this vocation in early retirement. Treat employees and your community fairly, exercise humility, and the respect and recognition will follow.
Flaunt wealth, cheat workers, and shortchange or strong-arm customers and you may stay in business but there will not be the love and respect from your region.
