Two funeral homes in Lubbock and one in Hereford have been ordered by a state agendy to cease providing mortuary services due to administrative violations.
Kathy Sparks with the Texas Funeral Services Commission said Franklin Bartley in Lubbock and Rix in Hereford have expired licenses. She said those businesses, along with Rix in Lubbock, do not have a funeral director in charge, which is a requirement.
Sparks said they can resume providing mortuary services when the violations are corrected. The owners have not yet returned our calls.
