Service Corporation International, a Texas corporation (such corporation, and its successors and assigns under the Indenture hereinafter referred to, being herein called the Issuer), promises to pay interest on the principal amount of this Note at the rate per annum shown above. The Issuer will pay interest semiannually on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing December 1, 2019. Interest on the Notes will accrue from May 21, 2019. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.
2. Method of Payment
The Issuer will pay interest on the Notes (except defaulted interest) to the Persons who are registered holders of Notes at the close of business on the May 15 or November 15 immediately preceding the interest payment date even if Notes are canceled after the record date and on or before the interest payment date. Holders must surrender Notes to a Paying Agent to collect principal payments. The Issuer will pay principal and interest in money of the United States that at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts. Payments in respect of the Notes represented by a Global Security (including principal, premium and interest) will be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the accounts specified by the Depositary.

3. Paying Agent and Registrar
Initially, BOKF, NA, a national banking association (the Trustee), will act as Paying Agent and Registrar. The Issuer may appoint and change any Paying Agent, Registrar or co-registrar without notice.
The Issuer issued the Notes under an Indenture dated as of February 1, 1993 (the Original Indenture), between the Issuer and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the Base Trustee), as amended by the Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture dated as of May 21, 2019 (the Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture and, the Original Indenture, as supplemented by the Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture, the Indenture), among the Issuer, the Base Trustee and the Trustee. The terms of the Notes include those stated in the Indenture and those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act of 1939 (15 U.S.C. §§ 77aaa-77bbbb) as in effect on the date of the Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture (the Act). Terms defined in the Indenture and not defined herein have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Indenture. The Notes are subject to all such terms, and Noteholders are referred to the Indenture and the Act for a statement of those terms.
The Notes are general unsecured obligations of the Issuer. The Issuer shall be entitled to issue Additional Notes pursuant to Section 2.3 of the Original Indenture. The Notes issued on the Issue Date and any Additional Notes will be treated as a single class for all purposes under the Indenture. The Indenture contains covenants that limit the ability of the Issuer and its subsidiaries to create liens on assets; consolidate, merge or transfer all or substantially all of its assets and the assets of its subsidiaries; and engage in sale/leaseback transactions. These covenants are subject to important exceptions and qualifications.

Except as set forth below, the Issuer shall not be entitled to redeem the Notes.
Prior to June 1, 2024, the Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Issuers option at any time, upon at least 30 days and not more than 60 days notice to the Holders, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of such Notes, and (2) as determined by the Quotation Agent, the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal (at the redemption price set forth in the table below as if redeemed on June 1, 2024) and interest thereon (not including any portion of such payments of interest accrued as of the date of redemption) through June 1, 2024 discounted to the date of redemption on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Adjusted Treasury Rate plus 50 basis points (the greater of (1) and (2), the Optional Redemption Premium), plus in each case, accrued interest thereon to the date of redemption.
On and after June 1, 2024, the notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Issuers option at any time, upon at least 30 days and not more than 60 days notice to the Holders, at the redemption prices (expressed in percentages of principal amount on the redemption date), plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the redemption date, if redeemed during the 12-month period commencing on June 1 of the years set forth below:

If money sufficient to pay the redemption price of and accrued interest on all Notes (or portions thereof) to be redeemed on the redemption date is deposited with the Paying Agent on or before the redemption date and certain other conditions are satisfied, on and after such date interest ceases to accrue on such Notes (or such portions thereof) called for redemption.
Adjusted Treasury Rate means, with respect to any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such redemption date.
Comparable Treasury Issue means the United States Treasury security selected by the Quotation Agent as having a maturity most nearly equal to June 1, 2024 that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities with a maturity of June 1, 2024.
Comparable Treasury Price means, with respect to any redemption date, (i) the average of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such redemption date, after excluding the highest and lowest such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, or (ii) if the Quotation Agent obtains fewer than three such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all such Quotations.
Quotation Agent means the Reference Treasury Dealer appointed by the Issuer.
Reference Treasury Dealer means each of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (and its successors) and any other nationally recognized investment banking firm that is a primary U.S. government securities dealer specified from time to time by the Issuer.
Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the Issuer, of the bid and asked prices for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Issuer by such Reference Treasury Dealer as of 5:00 p.m., New York time, on the third Business Day preceding the redemption date.
6. Put Provisions
Upon a Change of Control, any Holder of Notes will have the right to cause the Issuer to repurchase the Notes of such Holder at a repurchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes to be repurchased plus accrued interest to the date of repurchase (subject to the right of holders of record on the relevant record date to receive interest due on the related interest payment date) as provided in, and subject to the terms of, the Indenture.
7. Denominations; Transfer; Exchange
The Notes are in registered form without coupons in denominations of $2,000 principal amount and whole multiples of $1,000. A Holder may transfer or exchange Notes in accordance with the Indenture. The Registrar may require a Holder, among other things, to furnish appropriate endorsements or transfer documents and to pay any taxes and fees required by law or permitted by the Indenture. The Registrar need not register the transfer of or exchange any Notes selected for redemption (except, in the case of a Note to be redeemed in part, the portion of the Note not to be redeemed) or any Notes for a period of 15 days before a selection of Notes to be redeemed or 15 days before an interest payment date.
8. Persons Deemed Owners
Except as provided in Section 2 hereto, the registered Holder of this Note may be treated as the owner of it for all purposes.
9. Unclaimed Money
If money for the payment of principal or interest remains unclaimed for two years, the Trustee or Paying Agent shall pay the money back to the Issuer at its request unless an abandoned property law designates another Person. After any such payment, Holders entitled to the money must look only to the Issuer as general creditors and not to the Trustee for payment.
10. Discharge and Defeasance
Subject to certain conditions, the Issuer at any time shall be entitled to terminate some or all of its obligations under the Notes and the Indenture (insofar as the Indenture applies to the Notes) if the Issuer deposits with the Trustee money or U.S. Government Obligations for the payment of principal and interest on the Notes to redemption or maturity, as the case may be.
11. Amendment; Waiver
Subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Indenture, (a) the Indenture (insofar as the Indenture applies to the Notes) and the Notes may be amended with the written consent of the Holders of at least a majority in principal amount outstanding of the Notes and (b) any default or noncompliance with any provision may be waived with respect to the Notes with the written consent of the Holders of a majority in principal amount outstanding of the Notes. Subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Indenture, without the consent of any Noteholder, the Issuer, the Base Trustee and the Trustee shall be entitled to amend the Indenture or the Notes to evidence the assumption by a successor corporation of the Issuers obligations under the Indenture, or to add covenants or make the occurrence and continuance of a default in such additional covenants a new Event of Default for the protection of the Holders of debt securities, or to cure any ambiguity or correct any inconsistency in the Indenture or amend the Indenture in any other manner which the Issuer may deem necessary or desirable and which will not adversely affect the interests of the Holders of senior debt securities issued thereunder, or to establish the form and terms of any series of senior debt securities to be issued pursuant to the Indenture, or to evidence the acceptance of appointment by a successor Trustee, or to secure the senior debt securities with any property or assets.
12. Defaults and Remedies
Under the Indenture, Events of Default include (a) default for 30 days in payment of interest on the Notes; (b) default in payment of principal on the Notes at maturity, upon redemption pursuant to Section 5 hereto, upon acceleration or otherwise, or failure by the Issuer to redeem or purchase Notes when required; (c) failure by the Issuer to comply with other agreements in the Indenture or the Notes, in certain cases subject to notice and lapse of time; (d) certain accelerations (including failure to pay within any grace period after final maturity) of other Indebtedness of the Issuer if the amount accelerated (or so unpaid) exceeds $10 million; and (e) certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to the Issuer. If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or the Holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the Notes may declare all the Notes to be due and payable immediately. Certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency are Events of Default which will result in the Notes being due and payable immediately upon the occurrence of such Events of Default.
Noteholders may not enforce the Indenture or the Notes except as provided in the Indenture. The Trustee may refuse to enforce the Indenture or the Notes unless it receives indemnity or security satisfactory to it. Subject to certain limitations, Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Notes may direct the Trustee in its exercise of any trust or power. The Trustee may withhold from Noteholders notice of any continuing Default (except a Default in payment of principal or interest) if it determines that withholding notice is in the interest of the Holders.
13. Trustee Dealings with the Issuer
Subject to certain limitations imposed by the Act, the Trustee under the Indenture, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with and collect obligations owed to it by the Issuer or its Affiliates and may otherwise deal with the Issuer or its Affiliates with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee.
14. No Recourse Against Others
A director, officer, employee or stockholder, as such, of the Issuer or the Trustee shall not have any liability for any obligations of the Issuer under the Notes or the Indenture or for any claim based on, in respect of or by reason of such obligations or their creation. By accepting a Note, each Noteholder waives and releases all such liability. The waiver and release are part of the consideration for the issue of the Notes.
This Note shall not be valid until an authorized signatory of the Trustee (or an authenticating agent) manually signs the certificate of authentication on the other side of this Note.

17. CUSIP Numbers
Pursuant to a recommendation promulgated by the Committee on Uniform Security Identification Procedures the Issuer has caused CUSIP numbers to be printed on the Notes and has directed the Trustee to use CUSIP numbers in notices of redemption as a convenience to Noteholders. No representation is made as to the accuracy of such numbers either as printed on the Notes or as contained in any notice of redemption and reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers placed thereon.
