North Carolina Board of Funeral Service

In response to the public health crisis associated with the Coronavirus, the NC Board of Funeral Service has closed the office suite at 1033 Wade Avenue in Raleigh, NC to visitors until further notice. Board staff are also subject to telework arrangements and not on-site unless necessary. Even though we are taking all necessary precautions to assure our safety and well-being during this time of crisis, we are continuing our services to licensees and the public through emails and telephone calls. We appreciate your patience and regret any inconvenience to you. Please check the Coronavirus Advisory page on this website for information on the impact of the virus on the funeral service profession. Licensees should check email accounts for daily advisories from the Board regarding critical information pertaining to funeral service. Thank you.
