Since 1936, The National Directory of Morticians provides easily accessible information providing options for Funeral Directors to quickly research the Funeral Business to Business Market, allowing better service for family care. The information is continually updated by Funeral Directors through Red Book Agents.  Red Book leads in research for the Funeral Business to Business Market.  Industry Specific, Accurate, Oriented Information.  Thanks to participating Funeral Homes who server families with their needs in mind first.

What We Do

The National Directory of Morticians has Agents that work with Funeral Directors in researching information that is needed for a healthy Funeral Business to Business Market.  This enables the Funeral Director to better serve families at a difficult time.

It is often necessary for a Funeral Home to contract with a fellow Funeral Home.  Red Book provides a platform for this process so your Funeral Director can find quality, fast service, at fair rates from subcontracting Funeral Homes competing for the work.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR FUNERAL DIRECTOR

Funeral Directors are people.  No two are the same.

SELECTING THE RIGHT FIRM FOR YOU:  If you already have a personal relationship with your Funeral Director, then knowing if you wish to use them or not is simpler.

However, if you do not, then an interview with them is beneficial for everyone.  Asking questions on offerings, solutions, what type of services are available, and prepared solutions to cover your needs are several topics to discuss.  Let them know what you are looking for.

Are you looking for a unique, traditional, or some new experience?  Cremation, burial, and many other options are available in many formats.  If you are not sure, let your Director know and they can provide suggestions.  This will help you find the service and budget that works for you.

A Funeral Director working in your best interest will have the right tools that go beyond information that is available through public search engines.  We would all like to believe that all Funeral Directors use sources that have a greater ability than what is in available to the general public.  However, the Funeral Directors are people.  So that is not always the case.  Asking questions is important for your needs, the next family needing assistance, and the Funeral Industry as a whole.

HOW A FUNERAL DIRECTOR ASSISTS:  As with any industry, the Funeral Director utilizes resources beyond public internet search engines.  Some resources provide time savings.  Other resources provide a items and sub contractors that are set to help with specific tasks to save monies.

These resources will save your efforts so that you can spend time with your family and remember a life well lived.

YOUR RELATION WITH A FUNERAL HOME:  A Funeral Home is a business.  The majority are single location owners.  They could be your neighbor.  Assisting you is how they feed their families.  They need to make money so they can pay there bills.  Remember, a Funeral Director is a person.  We recommend talking with them.  Visit them in person.  Learn who & where they are.  Are they working with your needs in mind first?  Are they using competitive sources so that they can pass savings onto you?  This will help you avoid Funeral Directors and non licensed practitioners that use deceptive practices, over billing, and provide you with the assistance that is to your benefit.

It is our wish for you to find a good Funeral Home and Funeral Director that fits your needs.  The educated consumer is the Funeral Industry's best clients.  So ask questions, look around.  We all like to work with our best clients.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FUNERAL HOME, MORTUARY, & CREMATION SOCIETY?:  In general there are no differences.  In practice, there are many differences on what offerings are available.  Most areas have licensing & laws in place to protect all parties involved.

Mortuary or Cremation Society is another way of saying what is typically thought of as a Funeral Home.  Businesses use words in their name to help attract clients.  Do not fall prey to a name that you feel offers something that is not there.  Ask questions.  Businesses use words in their names to better describe the kind of goods and services they provide.

There is a general idea that an alternative service like a Cremation Society is less expensive.  Our research shows that is not true.  Rates and services very greatly across all platforms.  With the increase in options, there is an increase in possible confusion.  We recommend taking your time and asking questions.

WHY A FUNERAL and WHY USE A FUNERAL HOME?:  A Funeral is an opportunity to celebrate a life well lived.  To say "until we meet again."  If you are pleased with the service received, then the Funeral Home, Funeral Director, and those supporting the Funeral Home are pleased.  Simply put, if your happy, then the Funeral Industry is happy.

Licensed Funeral Directors are bound by laws that protect all parties.  You will want to ensure you are working with a licensed establishment.  If you are not comfortable when talking with a Funeral Director during your initial meeting, you may want to try interviewing another Funeral Home.  Remember, there are many options today to fit your budget and needs.

Feel free to use our Public Search to locate a firm of your choosing.
