Welcome from the Director
Welcome to Arizona State Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers website. We understand that the death of a loved one is undoubtedly the most traumatic experience many of us will ever encounter. By asking the right questions, comparing prices and services, and making informed decisions, you can make arrangements that are meaningful to your family. This website was designed for both consumers and licensees alike. It contains a variety of information ranging from a directory of licensees to a guide for consumers under the publications link.
