How can a Funeral Director be selected?

The family may select a funeral director right away. Most often, the next-of-kin discusses the selection of a funeral director with other family members, clergy, or friends. The Office of the Coroner is prohibited from recommending a funeral director. The Lucas County Coroner's Office and the funeral directors work closely together to accommodate families' funeral arrangements.
