Welcome to the Montana Board of Funeral Service

The Board of Funeral Service makes every effort to include on this website all relevant information pertaining to the licensing and regulation of morticians, mortician interns, mortuaries, crematory technicians, crematory operators, crematories, and for-profit cemeteries in Montana.
  • As of July 1, 2023, under SB 244, mortician interns are no longer required to have passed the national examination in order to qualify for a license. For specific details of the law you can see the language by visiting this link. This change allows current students to serve their internship at the same time as completing their education. Applicants must be enrolled in or have graduated already from a qualifying program under board rules. If you have questions regarding the bill or need assistance with applying for a mortician intern license, please reach out to department staff at (406) 841-2359.
