Welcome to the Funeral and Memorial Information Council

…where the leading associations in the funeral profession come together to exchange ideas, fund research, and provide dynamic programming for the benefit of all of their members, with the commitment to enhance the understanding and experience of funeral service and memorialization.

Share Ideas

Share ideas on how to enhance the understanding and experience of funeral service and memorialization with representatives from each of the member associations. Both staff and volunteers represent each association on the FAMIC Board.


FAMIC commissioned the first study of the public’s attitudes toward ritualization and memorialization in September 1990. Subsequent waves were conducted in 1995, 1999, 2004, 2010 and 2015, making this one of the most comprehensive and long-standing consumer research projects in funeral service. The goal of this research is to better understand the personal values driving decision-making behavior as it pertains to funeral service; to learn more about attitudes toward pre-planning, cremation, monuments, cemeteries and other aspects of memorialization; and to analyze changes in attitudes over time.


Have the Talk of a Lifetime

Have the Talk of a Lifetime is a consumer education outreach effort to urge families to talk with loved ones about life, the things that matter most and how they want to be remembered when they die. The materials created are available to the associations and their members for use in their place of business at no or little cost to the member.



FAMIC welcomes national and international associations that want to become members from the following allied funeral industry associations: cemeteries, crematories, florists, funeral services, and industry suppliers.
