According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 41.2% of America’s population has moved from the place where they were born. These are people who are disconnected from the funeral industry and may have no clue about shopping for or comparing funeral homes in their market.

“We created Funeralocity for the movers in society,” said Ed Michael Reggie, CEO of Funeralocity. “We believe in transparency, we’re committed to that. Overwhelmingly, funeral homes don’t put their prices on their websites. We’re trying to remedy that.”

In this video recorded at the 2018 National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Reggie explains how this service helps consumers connect online to funeral homes in their markets. Just put in your zip code and find all your local funeral homes, with their prices, ratings and reviews to help you make your best decision.

Funeralocity established their Excellence Provider program as part of their mission to help families make the best choices for their funeral services.

Excellence Providers have been vetted by the Funeralocity team. Once accepted, those funeral homes pledge to uphold the highest standards of transparency and best business practices. They exemplify the highest commitment to service and quality in the profession. These providers have agreed to extend discounts to families selecting them through Funeralocity.

You can find more information about Funeralocity’s services and see if they have your market’s information at www.Funeralocity.com.
