Funeral homes may have additional exposures such as pollution if they dispose of chemicals or other potential pollutants.
Commercial General Liability, Professional Liability and Commercial Property insurance would be recommended for a funeral home. Directors and Officers Liability Insurance would be important for those employees who are making important decisions (e.g. Board of Directors). Commercial Automobile insurance would also be needed for the vehicles used in relation to the business.
