It's all too easy to forget that the funeral business is exactly that: a business. If you've ever watched HBO's Six Feet Under, then you're at least somewhat familiar with the politics, budgeting, and lofty client demands that go on behind the scenes; to everyone else, the funeral industry is likely morbid, mysterious, and begs the question of why someone would ever choose to enter it.

Below you'll find a range of jobs in the funeral and mortuary business, many of which are macabre--some even potentially distasteful--but all of which are truly necessary in an industry concerned, first and foremost, with helping people in their time of need.
