I am a funeral director and regulation is a requirement for the funeral business. Most funeral home owners in Colorado make less than the people they bury. This is b/c most are rural and the business is small. Regulation in the right way will protect everybody: it will benefit the funeral homes ability to serve and stay in business, it will benefit the families by controlling cost, and it will benefit the deceased by insuring that someone with knowledge handles the serve. Most of the families taken advantage of in Colorado are done by people who are unlicensed and unregulated. Farm funerals are few and far between, but if that is what is wanted the cost would still be very low with a funeral director being present to oversee things.
