What Red Book Does

Red Book supports the funeral industry by providing essential information to funeral directors on a daily basis. Our Online Funeral Home Directory is designed for public use. Unlike other sources, we travel across the country and personally contact each funeral home to ensure the information is complete and accurate. This allows the funeral industry to confidently rely on our efforts when assisting families.

While the Online Directory for the public is not as comprehensive as the version available to funeral homes, it remains a valuable tool for researching and locating funeral homes.


 Our information is collected through electronic means, mail, and in-person visits to funeral homes to verify their status and details. To be included in our Online Directory under the funeral home section, a firm must be in good standing with their respective state board. We earnestly request that any inaccuracies be brought to our attention so they can be corrected promptly.
