Home Funeral Laws

There was a time when most funerals were held at home. Thought it's no longer the norm, some people still prefer the intimacy and practicality of caring for their own dead, which allows them to avoid the complications and costs of professional funeral services.

Unfortunately, because it's now common for industry professionals to handle most or all aspects of funerals and body disposition (burial or cremation), it can be difficult for those who want to take a different path to know where to begin. Below, you'll find an introduction to each state's law along with suggestions on how to get additional help, or you can begin by reading  Home Funeral Laws: An Overview.
