                                            The National Yellow Book of Funeral Directors and the Cemetery Directory have combined.

           The FUNERAL HOME & CEMETERY DIRECTORY contains listings of virtually every funeral home throughout the United States, as well as
           listings for over 3,000 active cemeteries. The directory also includes listings for Canadian and select International Funeral Homes, Trade
           Service Companies, Veterans Administration Facilities, Foreign Consulates, Foreign Shipping Regulations, and US Daily Newspapers.

           The directory is published in both the 8.5”x 11” Standard Size and the 5”x 7” Pocket Size editions. The handy Pocket Size edition fits
           easily into your briefcase, in your nightstand or in your car glove box. Information in the two editions is identical.

           The Catalog of Funeral Home and Cemetery Supplies has expanded and is now the BUYER’S GUIDE.

           In addition to listing all service/supply companies by the product or service offered to the funeral and cemetery
           industries, the Buyer’s Guide also contains listings of firms dealing with Pet Deathcare. For reference purposes
           the US Daily Newspapers, Educational Services and Trade Associations are also included.
