One hundred years ago, a handful of respected and innovative funeral professionals from across the country had a vision. Since the creation of National Selected Morticians in 1917 to this centennial milestone of what is now Selected Independent Funeral Homes, there has been a rich history of events and highlights that are depicted in this historical timeline. The history of this association is filled with the hard work and dedication of forward-thinking funeral service professionals who have consistently faced challenges and turned them into opportunities. The accomplishments of the past are the foundation of the future. Selected Independent Funeral Homes is committed to continued growth, delivering innovative and pertinent resources, solutions and ongoing support necessary for enduring excellence to our international network of independently-owned death-care providers.
