What people are saying about Selected members

A message to the staff of McLean Funeral Directors:

"We would like to thank you for the manner in which our son/brother's burial was handled and executed just as we requested. We also greatly appreciate the thoughtfulness, letters, literature and gifts during the past year. Your professionalism, caring and understanding exceeded our expectations. Once again, thank you!"

- Anon., Belmont, NC

What makes our members different?

During some of the most difficult times of your life, it makes good sense to choose a member of Selected Independent Funeral Homes. We are one  of the oldest and most respected professional associations of independent funeral homes in the world. But what makes our members different?

  • They are invited into membership only after meeting
    rigorous selection criteria.
  • They are carefully screened for their commitment to quality,
    range of consumer choices, affordability and high standards.
  • They are privately owned, meaning that your needs come first.
  • They view their reputation as their most valuable asset.
  • They must demonstrate ongoing high standards based on
    feedback from the families and individuals they serve.

We encourage you to use this website to learn about funeral options, find funeral resources, understand your rights as a consumer and obtain bereavement support.

The members of Selected Independent Funeral Homes are here to help you before, during and after your time of need. Click here to learn more about how a Selected firm can help or find the Selected funeral home nearest you.
