Suppliers Association

The Maryland State Funeral Suppliers Association consists of member firms that specialize in products and services specifically for the funeral home industry. As a partner of the Maryland State Funeral Directors Association, the MSFSA has supported the programs, events, seminars, and annual convention of MSFDA since the 1950s. Through sponsorships, contributions, participation, and friendship, their members have favored our association with continued support each year and our members are encouraged to refer to these suppliers for their funeral service and business needs.
