After a loss, simply knowing where to start can be the most difficult. We hope we can help you find some guidance for the road ahead.
Below is a summary of the services we offer on Obitia.com. All of our services are completely free and require no account registration (except the Tribute Page creation). Most questions can be answered through this Help Center or by typing a question into our "Help" widget found at the bottom right corner of any page.
We offer two checklists to help you after a loved one's death (Immediate Need Checklist and Funeral Planning Checklist). The Immediate Need Checklist summarizes the tasks that should be accomplished in the first 24 hours of a loved one's death. The Funeral Planning Checklist is a more comprehensive outline for planning a funeral and settling an estate.
Our free and simple Tribute Page creation tool allows you to share an obituary, a photograph, and information about your loved one. You can also share directions, times, dates and attendance notes for any viewings or services you plan to hold. The Tribute Page can then be shared easily via social media or by copying and pasting a custom link to friends and family.
Use our database of over 12,000 funeral homes and cemeteries to compare by price, location, amenities, and reviews. Request a pricing estimate email so you have a better idea of what costs to expect before reaching out to the funeral home director.
Our flower shop allows you to easily browse and order beautiful sympathy flowers. When you submit a flower order, the order will be submitted to a local florist who will arrange and deliver them to your requested delivery address. Same day delivery is available depending on the time the order is placed.
After a loss, time is not always a luxury many have, to spend researching various service providers online. For this reason we created a "Professional Services" section to help you more easily find and contact a variety of third party service providers, such as lawyers, accountants, and estate agents, who may be able to assist.
Our funeral shop lists a number of products, everything from caskets and urns, to candles and silk grave flowers. You can easily place an order for any item through Amazon or simply use our selection as a price reference when buying items directly from a funeral home.
Finding the right information can be difficult, find useful information in our Articles and Guides section covering common questions and concerns such as "How to Choose Flowers for a Funeral" to "How to Choose a Casket".
We have calculated average funeral prices for every state based on over 100,000 pricing and data points. You can use these figures as a source for comparison when searching for funeral homes in your area.
