How We Help You

We Make Researching Funeral Services Easy and Convenient.

Unlike other sites who make you choose a provider on price alone or a single random review, we allow you to get the most up-to-date, custom information directly from providers in your area. This ensures you pick the provider who works best for your family and budget.

About Your Needs

  • "I'm Planning For The Future": You're in good health and want to make sure that your family doesn't have to worry about funeral planning in the future.

  • "I'm Planning For A Pending Death": You're expecting someone to pass in the coming days or weeks and would like to ensure that a plan is in place.

  • "Someone Has Just Passed": A death has just occurred and no planning has been done, so you need funeral information and help immediately.

What You Receive

We partner with top funeral homes and cemeteries who offer quality service and price points for every family.

You will receive personalized quotes from up to three funeral providers, all who are willing to work with your service needs and budget.


One word...Convenience! FuneralDecisions.com makes researching funeral and cemetery options much easier than using a phone directory and making individual calls. Plus it offered me a level of anonymity until I was ready to pick up the phone and speak with someone. Susan Miller - New York

My dad was living in Texas, 18 hours from my home in Los Angeles. When he reached a point where it was necessary to make funeral arrangments, I went to FuneralDecisions.com and compared funeral homes near him. The one I chose was absolutely professional and warm. Ted G. - Los Angles, CA

I still can't believe that I got the most wonderful, comforting funeral director by a click! It was traumatic enough losing a 17-year old son, and preparing a Long Beach funeral while living in Arkansas...I am glad that your website allowed me the comfort without the confusion. Martha - Little Rock, AR
