Board, Staff & Committees

Please note that the NC Board of Funeral Service has discontinued all FAX service and now relies upon digital transmission of documents through email or a mail delivery service. Some application forms and other documents on this page still show a FAX number. We are in the process of revising application forms and other documents to remove any reference to a FAX number.
