Why Choose a Selected Funeral Home?


The compassionate people who make up the worldwide network of Selected Independent Funeral Homes know that each funeral service is as unique as the person or family planning it. Our funeral professionals can accommodate your needs with skill and flexibility, create unique and meaningful ways to help you honor the life of your loved one, and help you through one of life's most challenging times with dignity and respect. Selected members are here to help you before, during and after your time of need.

Founded in 1917 as National Selected Morticians, Selected Independent Funeral Homes is a worldwide professional association of independent, locally owned funeral homes who share a common interest in continuous growth and improvement to best serve families and individuals in their times of need. All Selected members have been hand-selected for membership and have agreed to uphold the professional and ethical standards of our Code of Good Practice.
