DearCustomer- I cannot find anything in the Massachusetts code that would prohibit such activity. I also cannot see any conflict of interest or ethical problems since these are related activities. Many funeral homes sell the caskets involved and the selling of gravestones seems to be just as relevant. Since I don't have any details of your individual situation I cannot comment specifically but in general I see no problem with the practice.
