License Search & Verification


The TFSC issues both individual and establishment licenses. By Commission rule, a funeral establishment shall conspicuously display its own license and every license holder's orginal license in each place of business at which the license holder practices. Licenses are color-coded in the following manner:

Yellow - Provisional (Funeral Director / Embalmer)

Blue – Active Individual (Funeral Director / Embalmer / Dual)

Orange/Red – Active/Provisional on Probation with Commission 

Green – Establishments (Funeral Homes / Commerical Embalming Facilities / Crematories / Cemeteries)

All licenses will show the expiration date of the license.



A person can verify that an individual/establishment is licensed with the TFSC by an online search. Searches can be done by location, name or license number at the following link:

The cost of standard written licensure verification is $30 per license for in-state requests. The cost is $50 for written verification of a license sent to an out-of-state licensing board. The standard written verification contains the following information: name, address, date of birth, license number, category of license, current status, date license issued, expiration date of license, and existence of past disciplinary actions. Any additional information must be requested in writing.
