Information about the Funeral Home business?

I plan on attending mortuary school after I graduate this year but I'm confused about all the career branches associated with the Funeral Home business. What I personally want to someday do is work in the funeral home, assist in picking up bodies, transporting to the crematory, embalming/makeup but I'm not too sure about talking with families about their plan for funerals and dealing with sadness and guilt, although I'm open to it. What exactly are the steps to get started? What is my major called? and how long would schooling take?

It all depends on what state you want to receive your license. Some states require you to have an associates, some a bachelors, and some you can apply to mortuary school right after high school. I would call the state you want their license in...their Mortuary State Board. Depending on what your state requires, it could take as little as a year or two. From what you have described in what you would like to do, I would call a few trade funeral homes. funeral homes that have trade accounts do some sort of work for different funeral homes. For example, if you owned a trade Funeral home, you would make removals and embalm for my funeral home. Maybe do a few more or less things for another funeral home depending on what that funeral home needs from you and your services. Most trade workers don’t deal with families too often...only really on house removals. The major is called Mortuary Science, or Funeral Services. Good luck and I hope this helped!
