The History of the FCSC

In 1963, the Rocky Mountain Memorial Society was registered as a nonprofit corporation in the State of Colorado. A memorial society or funeral consumer society such as ours is a nonprofit, democratic association of people from all walks of life, who want a simple, dignified alternative to the elaborate and increasingly costly funeral services promoted by the funeral industry.  The first such society was started over 50 years ago.  Initially most were euphemistically called memorial societies, but in recent years many have changed their names to more accurately reflect what we really are:  groups of consumers who want to keep informed about funeral industry practices and economical alternatives to expensive funerals. We changed our name from Rocky Mountain Memorial Society to Funeral Consumer Society of Colorado in 1998 to make our name more clearly match that purpose.  FCSC celebrated its 50th anniversary on November 5, 2013.
