    The best business although not with high profit margins seems to be the Funeral Business.

    Years ago i had a my now deceased Dads friend started one on the NSW Central Coast with an Irish family theme and she is making a packet.

    what makes this the "best" business and what leads you to believe there is "not high" profit margins?

    It's the best. That's why the Forbes list is full of funeral directors.

    I'd have grave concerns if the profit margin isn't high.

    A venture such as this would involve coffin up a lot of cash for the setup. You wouldnt want to get burnt.

    Getting back on topic.

    A funeral business on the Central Coast may not be good business. People living within the Central Coast region are not allowed to be buried there.

    Because they are still living.

    A relative went to an auction at a cemetery once. He lost the plot.

    You couldn't urn a living.

    Just like any business, if you bury yourself in it early, hopefully the day comes when you come up smelling like roses.

    There's plenty to urn in a crematorium.
