Funeral Planning

Posted on January 15, 2013 by Rachel Zeldin

Many people ask "How do I find a list of funeral homes websites in the United States"? Before recently, the answer wasn't as straight forward since information can be found in all sorts of online destinations - good and bad. We estimate that just over half of the funeral homes that are licensed to operate in the United States have websites, which makes identifying all of your options a tricky one; however there are a few good resources to help you in your search.

1. Funeral Planning Websites

Funerals360 was developed to help you understand your funeral options and find local providers of funeral services and products.

3. State Governmental Websites 

Some states have online tools that help residents look up corporations and see information about the State's funeral or mortuary boards. The sophistication of these online systems vary greatly from one state to the other, but are one of the best ways to verify that a prospective funeral home is licensed to perform funeral services. All of the funeral home information at Funerals360 starts with a verified list of licensed funeral homes directly from the State. This ensures that all licensed funeral homes can be found and those that are not authorized or are out-of-business are properly notated or are not displayed.
