SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Consumer Affairs’ Cemetery and Funeral Bureau has revoked the licenses associated with the Lane Family Funeral Home in Delano.

The licenses of the funeral home, and of Funeral Director Padraic C. Lane, were revoked as the result of an investigation which found fraud, misrepresentation, false and misleading advertising, and failure to provide printed price lists.

As a result, Lane Family Funeral home does not have the valid licenses required by the state to conduct business. All activity was ordered to cease as of December 16, 2013. Consumers should be aware that neither the funeral home nor Mr. Lane may operate legally in California as of that date.

Consumers who have questions or concerns about Mr. Lane or the Lane Family Funeral Home should contact the Cemetery and Funeral Bureau at (800) 952-5210.

Consumers should always verify the license of a funeral establishment before doing business with it. To verify a license or to file a complaint, visit www.cfb.ca.gov or call us toll free at (800) 952-5210.

The Cemetery and Funeral Bureau advocates consumer protection and licensee compliance through proactive education and enforcement of laws and regulations of the death care industry.
