The Mississippi State Board of Funeral Service is responsible for implementing the provisions of the Funeral Service Law for the purpose of better protection of life and health and regulating the practice of embalming, funeral directing and the care and disposition of dead human bodies.

The Board is authorized to prescribe a standard of proficiency as to the qualifications of embalmers and funeral directors, to revoke or suspend licenses for any violations of this law, to adopt rules and regulations and to set standards of sanitation to be observed in the embalming or cremation of dead human bodies. Any person desiring to engage in the practice of embalming and/or the practice of funeral directing or operating a funeral establishment must first meet the requirements of the law and rules and be licensed by the Board.
