Since 1936, The National Directory of Morticians provides easily accessible information formats giving more time for family care. This information is continually updated by Funeral Directors through our Red Book Agents.  Red Book leads in quick research of Funeral Business to Business Market.  Industry Specific, Industry Accurate, Industry Oriented Information.

What We Do

The National Directory of Morticians have 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 in life.

It is often necessary for a Funeral Home to contract with a fellow Funeral Home.  Red Book helps with this process so your Funeral Director is able to find quality, fast service, at fair rates from subcontracting Funeral Homes competing for the work.  This Funeral Business to Business Market helps your Funeral Director capture and pass savings and better service along to you.  The savings vary from several hundred to thousands of dollars.  Funeral Homes may appear to be the same.  However, their offerings vary greatly and can be confusing.


Funeral Directors are people.  Meaning no two are the same.

SELECTING THE RIGHT FIRM FOR YOU:  A passive way to help ensure the Funeral Director is acting favorably to your needs is to ask your Funeral Director how they work.  Ask "Do you pass costs onto us without researching it first?"  When they answer "Yes, we research everything thoroughly", follow up with a second question.  Learn HOW they are performing their research.

If the answer mostly involves search engines, then the real question is, "If you are using searching engines that I can use, then why does anyone need a Funeral Director?  Are not Funeral Directors suppose to know where to go?  What to do?  Who to call?  Can all the answers and advice a Funeral Director offers, be found on an internet search engine?  Then why pay Funeral Director?"

HOW A FUNERAL DIRECTOR ASSISTS:  A good Funeral Director working in your best interest, utilizes resources that go beyond internet search engines.  Some resources provide time savings.  Others provide sub contractors that are set up to help with specific tasks, legal help, and finding products that are difficult to find.  Ask questions.  That will increase your opportunity to have a rewarding experience.

YOUR RELATION WITH A FUNERAL HOME:  A Funeral Home is a business.  Just like all business people, they may take short cuts or use sub-par resources that cost you unnecessary monies and time.  Remember, a Funeral Director is a person.  We recommend talking with them.  Learn who and where they are.  Are they in your town or somewhere else in the country?

A good Funeral Director will work with your best interest as the primary focus.  They will use resources designed for each task.  A bad Funeral Director will take short cuts, "pass it along to the family," not make the extra phone call, use a search engine instead of finding a better and less expensive path.  Like any bad contractor that takes short cuts, they are attempting to cut costs so their profits are higher.  You can use "if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is."

A good Funeral Director has answers that make sense and fit the situation.  They will be willing to meet with you in person.  They have secured subcontractors and vetted people for your needs.  Resources that they subscribe to that better their services.  A good Funeral Director will perform in a fair, responsible monetary way.  They will make life simpler for you and yours, at the worst and arguably most vulnerable time.

It is our wish for you to find a good Funeral Home and Funeral Director that fits your needs, we encourage you to ask questions.  Educated people are the Funeral Industry's best clients at the end of the day.

WHY A FUNERAL?:  The importance of a Funeral has been, and will continue to be, your celebration of a life well lived.  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.

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

Public Searching - Online Funeral Home Directory

The Online Funeral Home Directory (and/or Mortuary Directory) provides a complete list of licensed Mortuary and Funeral Home establishments that work with the general public.  Funeral Homes that specifically work in the Funeral Home to Funeral Home market are not shown in the Online Funeral Home Directory as they do not work directly with the general public.    

We recommend for a family in need or a family in planning to take their time and ask their Funeral Director questions.  Licensed Funeral Directors are bound by laws that protect all parties.  You will want to ensure you are working with a licensed establishment and not a non-licensed party willing to take advantage of you.

RED Book Funeral HOME Directory for funeral directors

The RED BOOK is one of the sources mentioned above that is a a non-public reference intended to be used by Funeral Directors.  The RED BOOK printed, web site, and App version contain licensed Funeral Homes & Mortuaries in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other destinations around the world.  The Red Book has additional information specific to a Funeral Business to Business needs that helps ensure great service and fair pricing.  Funeral Directors are encourage to communicate with a Red Book Agent during their annual research trip to the area.


Red Book is continually updated by physical visit to each location (there is no better way to get the information correct than a face to face visit), as well as mail, phone, email, internet and fax communication.  This enables Red Book to collate specific information that Funeral Directors require to assist a family in need, giving them the ability to work at peak efficiency.

Funeral Directors using great information and great tools provides an opportunity for better assistance to the family during difficult times.  Be sure to ask your Funeral Director if they are working in your best interest.  Is your Funeral Director using industry specific resources, like Red Book, designed to increase service and decrease cost?  Or are they guessing.  Encourage your Funeral Director to keep your interests a priority.  

(Quick Search and the Online Funeral Directory are designed for safe usage by the general public. Licensed funeral homes should contact their Red Book Agent to gain access to The Red Book.)
