Greenville Funeral Home Fined For Violations

Roundtree & Associates Funeral Home has been ordered to pay $3,500.

According to the North Carolina Board of Funeral Service the Greenville funeral home is being fined for failing to timely file death certificates and for failing to keep accurate pre-need records. A pre-need record is when someone pre-pays for a funeral.

Board members tell WITN Roundtree had deficiencies with its annual report which is why it was fined; however, these violations had nothing to do with missing money.

Board members say the fine has already been paid.

    sounds like Rountree"s competitors mught have tipped the news station. This really is no big deal. Just carelessness. There is a lot of competition amongst funeral establishments to see who can get the most death calls. No need to try to hurt the others. What goes around comes around.

    This is something that the so called higher uppers wants to have something to breathe about. I'm sure they have some sort of paper work, just could'nt put their hands on it at the time. Rountree yall have done a great job, keep up the excellent work you do. My family have done business with yall a long time. Pray and keep it moving.

    Many tyimes when I did not get all the info needed to COMPLETE the DC,I would fill out what I could and fax it in....lain and simple.Then and when the family gave us what we needed to finish said DC we would then make corrections or add missing info so the original,completed DC could be typed and sent to the Health Dept.so they could file and mail out originals.
