Organization Spotlight: Selected Independent Funeral Homes

Selected Independent Funeral Homes is the premier association for independently owned and operated funeral homes. Membership to this organization is by invitation-only and requires a commitment to the upmost standards of service and care to families served during loss. Holloway Funeral Home has been a member by invitation of Selected Independent Funeral Homes since 1970. Commemorating 50 years of continuous membership with the association in 2020, Holloway Funeral Home, was honored with the short video biography shown below.


The association was founded in 1917 as National Selected Morticians (NSM) when a group of forward-thinking funeral professionals met to discuss a shared vision of mutual cooperation and the future of funeral service. Membership is by invitation only and is extended to worthy funeral homes after careful evaluation of their character, professional ability and reputation.


Their mission is to deliver innovative and pertinent resources, solutions and ongoing support necessary for enduring excellence to our independently owned death-care providers who aspire to be the very best in their profession. Selected serves as a resource for support for members in achieving the best practice performance and recognized leadership in service to families. Selected Independent Funeral Homes offers many distinct advantages and benefits to its growing membership. While remaining faithful to its founding principles and its one-hundred-year tradition, the association is constantly evaluating new and exciting ways to better serve its members today. Selected empowers firms to achieve their goals by creating business tools, developing education, and connecting members to better each other. We are Selected. And together, we are stronger.
