    Wow! First time I do inquiries about FH biz & I'm so fascinated by the advice given by good people here & may they continue to grace the universe with their well thought wisdom. As for responses about South Africa's high interest, I think its because of a stable economical & political friction unlike other countries & yes death rate is high with HIV/AIDS related causes but they don't necessarily amount to why people want in the biz, reason being most HIV/aids related death are amongst the poorest societies who can barely afford to bury their loved one thus you find government takes over in that instance. Another comment was spot on by mentioning "should you die" insurances which most South Africans have joined or rather invested in because of our diverse cultural practices when it comes to burials. We Africans in SA are biggest spenders of funerals, family brackets are large, community support is huge thus you find that an individual could cover him/herself up to R 50 000.00 to cover up the ceremony. Burials are sensitive here in South Africa & some individuals reply bitterly by trying to ridicule the country by mentioning Aids & unemployment like as is they make business sense. Give individuals who might have interest in investing in our beautiful country business facts not your opinion about the country. God bless

    Mason, MI, USA. My husband has been in the funeral business for almost 9 years now. We are talking about purchasing an existing funeral home in our home town. It is a corporate funeral and we would like more information on the steps we need to follow to make an offer and the funds that we should have available for start up.

    Hi, My name is Storm Masters and I am 19 years old and my career goal is to work in the funeral industry. However due to my age I have been unsuccessful in getting a job. (Through my research I have found out that you need your full drivers license to gain access and I am on my green P plates and also I am under the age of 25 years old so I cost more for insurance.) I also live on the South Coast of Australia NSW in a remote coastal country town called Merimbula which is near Bega. I completed work experience in my local funeral home at the age of 15 for two weeks, and I have been helping them out now and then in the mortuary and helping direct the funerals. I am currently working full time at the local hospital as a surgical ward clerk, and also at 2 other orthopedic surgeons private practices as a medical receptionist I completed my HSC year 12 certificate in 2009 and achieved high marks, I am a Justice of the Peace and have just completed at Advanced Diploma of Celebrancy to become a qualified marriage, civil and funeral celebrant, I have submitted my application to the attorney generals office and am awaiting approval. I am thinking about starting a correspondence course in Grief and Trauma counseling but am unsure if this would be of benefit to be in gaining access to the funeral industry. All of the courses I have researched said that you need to be employed in the industry in order to do them, I am unsure of what I should do next? CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP GUIDE ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION my email address is- storm.masters92@yahoo.com.au

    I am from Canada. While many family funeral homes sold out to the Corporations it is the family funeral homes that are proving to be more successful. It is very expensive to own your own funeral home here. At least 400,000 for your building, another 100,000 for equipment plus the cost of a hears, family car and removal vehicle. Your overhead is very high. You require about 6 calls per week to make a decent living. Honesty and being friendly are the key as well as top notch service without nickel and dimeing the families you serve. Average cost is $6,500. This is very much a labor intensive business with long hours. You must be licensed to embalm and hold a license to be an owner. It is a 3 yr. course here. You must also display a minimum of 12 caskets of varying prices. Treat your lower priced funerals the same as your higher priced funerals and you should do well. Treat everyone who enters your home with care and respect and they will keep coming back each time they have a death in their family. You are wise to do your own embalming as opposed to sending out to an embalming center for the work to be done there. That way you control the quality of the work. As an owner you can do very well financially. 300 calls a year should net you about $350,000 profit and that is with you taking a $2,000 a week salary for yourself. Full time embalmers (Directors) earn from $40-55 per year.

    Hi, I am in Queensland Australia I know your all talking about starting your own funeral service. I am really interested in studying Mortuary Science and Embalming so I can work in a Funeral Home but you can't get in to the courses unless you already have a job in a Funeral Home and I have had a lot of trouble finding anyone willing to take someone on. They all seem to be family run businesses and they don't like hiring outside of that. Does anyone have some advice on how to get a job in a home so I can do the full course. Thank you.

    Hi, I am presently employed in a business unrelated to funerals, however, the building I work in Bay Shore Long Island, NY was a funeral home and minor renovations have converted it into a business. Since our industry is not doing well and we are unable to sell our building, I was wondering if it would be feasible to change back into a funeral home. If anyone has any ideas about this please email to the above address. Thank you. donhno@aol.com

  • 222. paul said on September 10, 2011
    wanting to own a funeral home to help people in their time of need is a noble idea but there will be bills that have to be paid. So like any business you have to make a profit. And how does one make a profit? By sourcing suppliers who offer products and services that give you the most value for your money. The point of this comment is to inform businesses that i can supply coffins in south africa at a competitive price. So if you are looking for a supplier, contact me. P. S... I am not looking for start up capital or silly deposits into my account. And i do not want to be bothered by stupid people trying to scam me. Straight forward, C. O. D deals only. contact me at josepauldias@yahoo.com

  • 233. Deekay said on October 24, 2011
    TO ROY AND THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED. South Africa has many township. Life is fast and better percentage of the people live life only for today. As a result they don't plan anything for future but abuse their lives with alcohol and drugs. This things expose them to Hiv&aids, enemies who will eventually kill them, car accidents, skipping medications and to everything that drive them to the grave. Consequently many young people die before they even reach 30years. I once audited cemetery in one of the township called Soshanguve. I was shocked to find out that only on saturday and sunday the cemetery becomes a new home to 100 people. I wondered and asked myself if that is the case in Soshanguve what about big townships such as Soweto in Johannesburg and Umalzi in Durban? So Roy, that is why you see many people from South Africa are interested in starting a business in this field. Another reason is that many people have funeral cover policies and they also cover their close relatives. Therefore no one will come to you to negotiate for a credit. From where many of us are seating there is money in this business. (NB: I AM NOT INTERESTED IN THIS ONE)Deekay from Pretoria (South Africa)

  • 250. Mel Kabinski said on January 27, 2012
    I owned my own funeral home from 1999-2002. Let me tell you besides the start up costs and the overhead, it's a tough and stressful business. My business went wel for the first year but two unfortunate accidents at my place led to lawsuits and I was forced to close shop. One of my embalmers performed an almost obsolete embalming and displayed the body in morbid condition when i was on vacation. I continued to practice without a license after the incident and I accidentally spilled some chemicals on one of my subjects which burnt to the point of no return. I'm still paying fines.

    I'm a student in mortuary school, I have a little exp.working in the funeral home.I been looking in to starting my own funeral business,from what little knowledge I learned in starting a funeral business. you really can't get a set dollar amount on how much it cost to start that particular business.#1 finding a facility,now are you going to buy or lease? #2prep room supplies can cost up to $15,000 thats before you purchase the embalming machine for $4,000 then the embalming table(stainless steel)$5,000. Now to lease a building + the utilities the monthly cost can be up to $5,000.As far as funeral fleet(vehicles)I would go with a lease,funeral coach(hearse) limousine. As far as a transport vehicle I would purchase it. You can use a SUV or something to go & retrieve the body. when I get more info I will share more.

    I wish to start a private mortuary and not a funeral parlour. Are there any specific legal requirements? I am aware of the requirement for good reliable refrigeration equipment and high hygienic standards. My idea is to have a private mortuary wherein a dead body is stored prior to burial, which is the point at which the funeral undertaker comes in. My clients will be Funeral Undertakers, Hospitals and the public in general. The corpse would be stored at my mortuary for a fee. Please anybody with information that would assist me in setting up this enterprise. Regards, Abel Chendamudima
