Funeral Home Workers

Employment for morticians, undertakers, and funeral directors should grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The need to replace those retiring (more directors are 55 or older than in other occupations) or leaving the profession will spur a demand for newly trained directors. Anticipated growth also reflects the need for services as the population in general ages. The DOL says that "opportunities should be particularly favorable for those who are licensed as both a funeral director and an embalmer, for those willing to relocate, and for certified crematory operators."
