Welcome to the Online Complaint Form

The Cemetery and Funeral Bureau is here to help Californians be careful consumers and to protect them from unscrupulous and unqualified individuals.

The Cemetery and Funeral Bureau licenses, regulates, and investigates complaints against California funeral establishments, funeral directors, embalmers, apprentice embalmers, cemetery brokers, salespersons and managers, cremated remains disposers, crematories and crematory managers, and approximately 200 fraternal and private cemeteries in California. The Bureau does not have jurisdiction over religious cemeteries, public district cemeteries, Native American burial grounds, or cemeteries, crematories, or funeral establishments located outside of California.

  3. Once your complaint is received, allow up to 14 days for a response
