For the second time in less than a year, a Helena-West Helena funeral home is facing disciplinary action by the Arkansas State Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors according to a Memphis, Tennessee television station.

WREG-TV channel reports that in an order dated Aug. 18, 2017, the state board suspended the license of Wilson's Funeral Home. The suspension begins Sept. 1 and is for six months. The owner's apprentice license was also taken.

According to the board, Cedric Wilson, who currently holds an apprentice certificate, was “holding himself out to the public as a practicing funeral director...without being the holder of a license.”

The funeral home also remains on a year-long probation dating back to November, 2016. That probation was the result of Wilson allegedly soliciting business when his apprentice license had expired.

Investigators reported in the latest case that they discovered 12 funeral contracts in which Wilson allegedly falsified the funeral director's signature.

A complaint filed by a woman regarding her mother's funeral prompted the board's latest investigation.

Channel 3 reported that board documents revealed that Wilson reportedly did not provide a written estimate for the funeral or a general price list as required by federal law. Wilson supposedly submitted claim forms to the family's insurance company but the customer denied having signed them.

Wilson has 30 days to appeal the order.
