Five things you probably didn’t know about Funeral Directors.




There are many misconceptions about funeral directors and starting the New Year on a positive note, I’d like to shed some light on this seemingly dark profession.
1. Funeral Directors are not educated or licensed.

False. Funeral Directors in most states need a minimum of two years of college or Mortuary College to apply for a Funeral Director’s license. Some states require two licenses; a Funeral Director’s license and an Embalming license. Then, there is usually an apprenticeship and/or internship –many times unpaid for six months to a year before they can actually work in a funeral home and earn a paycheck. They must also earn continuing education credits on an ongoing basis just like nurses, teachers and other professionals. Many attend trade shows and conventions also to learn about new techniques and new products to offer their families.

2. Most Funeral Directors are older men.

False. In years past, most Funeral Directors were male and many inherited the business from their fathers and grandfathers. In recent years, that trend has changed. As of 2011, 57% of all graduates of Mortuary College were female and predominately young. The number is probably closer to 65% in the year 2013 and continues to rise. There are also a large number of women over 40 yrs. who are choosing to become Funeral Directors after they raise their families or as a mid-life career change. These women are making the choice to spend the rest of their professional lives caring for others in their time of need, not for monetary gain.

3. Funeral Directors view this profession as a business with a high potential income.

False. Most Funeral Directors enter this field just as they would enter any service profession such as teaching, nursing, police work or social work – to help people. Their singular goal is to assist grieving families and to make sure that their loved one’s funeral service is dignified and appropriate to the family’s wishes.

Funeral services on average have only about a 12% profit margin, so people entering this profession do not do it for the money. Salaries are only between $20,000 and $55,000 average nationwide. It’s a living but not a lucrative one.


4. Funeral Directors are introverted and not sociable types.

False. Funeral Directors are Soccer Moms, Basketball Coaches, Girl Scout Leaders, Scrap bookers, Fisherman, Artists, Singers, etc. They are as sociable as any other group of people. You might sit next to them in church, exchange small talk at the supermarket, serve with them on the PTA or bowl with them. They do all the same things as you do and they have excellent people skills. They deal with people at their worst, every day. Yes, there are “funeralzillas”. But, just like wedding planners, Funeral Directors take it in their stride. Imagine planning and coordinating every aspect of a wedding in less than three days? Well, Funeral Directors plan and coordinate just as many tasks, in the midst of profound sadness and grief. Funeral service is a very stressful job and the hours could not be worse.


5. Funeral Directors work regular hours and take weekends and holidays off.

False. Unlike weddings, people don’t die on a schedule. Funeral Directors get calls from hospitals, hospices, morgues and families at all hours of the day and night, seven days a week. Death never takes a holiday and neither do they. Most Funeral Directors eat Thanksgiving dinner ready to leave their families at a moment’s notice, should the phone ring. You think it’s difficult to get someone to cover for your vacation? Try being a Funeral Director. Only a colleague you can trust and has the same skill set can cover for you. Not an easy task.

Funeral Directors deal with death and sadness every day of their career. They are there to assist families in the worst moments of their lives; when they’ve lost a mother, father, sibling, or their young child. They take families through the grief process towards the light of a new day. They offer grief resources after the funeral service. They know that grief will still be there after family and friends have gone home. 


They spend their professional lives in service to families, like you, because just like you, they lose loved ones too.

  2. Hello to every one out here,

    My name is Daniela Gomez, I live in United Kingdom, My husband and I have been married for about 6 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Frank Ojo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Three days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Frank Ojo . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details

  4. When I found Dr. Trust I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact dr.Trust through his website and he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now.we moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. Trust helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. Trust to anyone in need of help.

  6. Life is all about good and bad experience
    Life is all about good and bad experience. It was all good and lovely when i met joelly, she was a good business woman until things become rough for her and her business empire started liquidating. I was a very courageous and hardworking man so i decided to sell my inheritance to assist . We both struggle together and built the business world again. This time around the business was growing from strength to strength. I was surprise one Sunday evening when she came home with her secretary and told me that we cannot continue with this pretense called love. I was shocked and heart broken, i was in a friend, house for three weeks frustrated until i met Fernando my old friend at the supermarket, he directed to me to Dr saka. I contacted saka and he told me that Joelly was been manipulated by some spiritual power and he told me to provide some items which he is going to use to destroy the evil spirit. I never believe in voodoo but i had to give him a trial. To my greatest surprise, Joelly called and started apologizing 2 days after i sent Dr. Saka the email. I am very happy and will continue to be happy for the good work the Saka has done in my life. Problems are been solved when good people like Saka are on this planet, please contact him through ultimatespearcast@gmail.com if you need any support in any problems in life. I love Dr Saka ... :)
