Funeral Planning: It’s Not As Difficult As You Think

The internet has become a vast, digital universe bursting with factoids, memes, merchandise and gluten-free paleo recipes that can be made in the microwave. This intangible space not only keeps us entertained, but it allows us to flex our independent muscles when it comes to almost everything. 

We can shop, ride, evite and explore from sitting on our couch, and we feel confident planning a trip without a travel agent or buying a car without a dealer.

When it comes to planning a funeral, we’re a little less confident.

We feel like we NEED someone to tell us how to navigate the situation because chances are, it’s a situation we have not been in before.

But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. With Funeral Matters, it’s actually quite simple.

Build and Price a Funeral

Using an intuitive web interface, Funeral Matters allows you to get accurate funeral pricing from real New Jersey funeral homes. It is designed for you to review the options available to you from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace, anonymously.

You start by answering a series of simple questions:

·        Has a death occurred or are you planning a future funeral? Click.

·        Are you interested in cremation or a burial? Click.

·        Would you like to gather with family and friends? Click.

As you click through the process, your answers are compiled to build an estimated funeral arrangement. Once you finish, you are presented with a summary outlining all the services and merchandise affiliated with the selections you have made. Each selection is clearly displayed with an explanation about what it is, and why it was included. And the best part is: PRICES.

You can see in real-time the costs affiliated with your selections. This is an easy way for you to fine-tune the funeral you are planning, get familiar with the arrangement process, and understand the costs.

After you are done building a funeral, you have the option to print out your price estimate and/or share it with family or friends via email. You can even compare funeral home prices to help you select the right funeral home to meet your needs and budget.

The process is free to use. All pricing and services are transparent and from actual funeral homes with no hidden surprises. If you wish to remain anonymous, no worries. The only time you will be requested to give contact information is if and when you choose to finalize your selections with a funeral home.

Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? Build and price a funeral, yourself, online, anywhere, at any time.

See? Planning a funeral isn’t as difficult as you thought.
