With all that being said, here’s all you need to know about the series, and the amazing Bernard family.
In 2017, Ryan Bernard opened the doors to R Bernard Funeral Services in Memphis, Tennessee. Ryan offered complete, yet affordable funeral packages to help his community deal with high funeral costs.
And this eight-episode series on the streaming service shows Ryan and his family as they run the company in the toughest of times. Netflix says that the family survive this intense line of work with “one part understanding, a pinch of sarcasm, and a heaping spoonful of blatant honesty.”
“This unorthodox funeral home is only outmatched by the unconventional Bernard family themselves,” it says Bernard Funeral Services made a TV advert selling their services in 2018.
It showed a dead man in a coffin so shocked at the company’s low prices, he sits up and demands to be taken to the Bernard funeral home.

Soon after, Bernard Funeral Services also introduced a ‘drive-thru’ service, where clients could view and pay respects to their deceased loved ones through a window outside of the building. In COVID times, this option has become an important feature.
Ryan is the business owner and dad to Deja and Reagan. Also featured in the show is Ryan’s Uncle Kevin – a larger-than-life character who helps to run the home. And then there’s the matriarch of the family, Ryan’s mother Debbie. development Ryan describes Debbie as a combination of “Kim Jong-un, Stalin and Mussolini”.

She also said her role in the company is “research and development”.
