Protecting Yourself From Fraud


Unfortunately, because of the actions of a few, the funeral service profession has received attention for wrongdoing and charges of fraud. As a consumer, you need to be aware of the criminal and unethical practices some providers may use and that you may face when planning a funeral. It will help to ask yourself the following questions:

  • How reputable is the business I am considering?
  • Does this business operate with strong consumer standards?
  • What are my rights as a consumer?
  • How do I know if I am being offered a fair price?
  • How can I ensure the best care for my loved one?
  • How do government regulations protect me?

Selected's Code of Good Practice

Since 1965, the members of Selected Independent Funeral Homes have followed a Code of Good Practice that insists on honesty and integrity at a time when consumers need them the most. This code of conduct even preceded the federal government's consumer protection standards.

What people are saying about Selected members

"I wanted to thank the funeral directors for their handling of the funeral. They took care of everything from beginning to end without any of us having to think about anything but our love for our father. They were very attentive to the family. It was a very dignified funeral."
