? Executive Summary

The term “death care industry” refers to the array of providers of funeral and burial goods and services, such as funeral directors, cemeteries, and third-party sellers. The death care industry is currently undergoing a major transformation. Historically, it has been fragmented, with limited overlap among various segments of the funeral and burial industries. Funeral homes and funeral directors sold funeral merchandise and services. Cemeteries sold burial merchandise and services. Cemeteries and monument/memorial dealers sold monuments and memorials. A funeral home or cemetery generally arranged cremation services, and independent florists sold flowers. Today, such distinctions are diminishing. The industry is consolidating. Large chains are buying and managing locally owned funeral homes and cemeteries. Many nonprofit cemeteries are now owned by, managed by, or otherwise affiliated with for-profit chains.
