Golden Rule® Funeral Homes are independent, family owned funeral homes that span the globe. All firms must adhere to the same strict set of ethics and practices. Each Golden Rule® Funeral Home must show a commitment to provide to their client families: “Service measured not by gold but by the Golden Rule.”
