The Alabama Board of Funeral Service is the regulatory and licensing agency for the funeral profession in the state of Alabama. It was created in 1975 by Act 214 of the Alabama Legislature's Regular Session and actual office operation began in early 1976.
The Board is made up of nine members, seven professional members from each U.S. Congressional district and two consumer members. The seven professional members are appointed by the Governor, one consumer member is appointed by the Lieutenant Governor, and one consumer member by the Speaker of the House. Each member serves a four-year term and may serve no more than two consecutive terms.
