The practice of group planning for funeral arrangements started early in the last century in the Farm Grange movement of the Northwestern United States. These early “burial coops” evolved and spread into urban areas, where a sense of social activism emerged when these groups began to compare their experiences. After a national organization was formed, it joined with other consumer groups to support passage of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Funeral Rule (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funeral_Rule). This landmark in consumer protection has changed the industry--forcing funeral homes to provide detailed price lists to all, making greater choices available in funeral arrangements, and providing federal enforcement to ensure the rules are followed.
