Funeral Consumers Alliance

More than 100 regional funeral consumer alliances (also known as memorial societies) representing 400,000 members in the US, all affiliated with the Funeral Consumers Alliance (FCA) provide their members with reduced prices for simple, dignified funeral services with participating funeral directors. Joining a funeral consumers alliance helps ensure that you have the sort of funeral you want while sparing your family from having to make difficult decisions during a difficult time. They also provide—courtesy of the FCA—detailed brochures and guides on just about every aspect of burial.
