About Funeral Update
Funeral Update is changing the way people invite friends and family to funerals and funeral-related events.
The Funeral Update Mission
When planning a funeral (and wakes, graveside services, or receptions), there are lots of details to organize and share during a very difficult time. The bereaved can end up receiving many calls and emails with requests for information, which can quickly become overwhelming. We believe Funeral Update can ease some of the burden for all involved.
Funeral Update’s free funeral websites allow you to share information about the funeral and surrounding events, notify your family and friends of the details, and update everyone at once if anything changes.
Features of Funeral Update include:
• An easy-to-create funeral website with all funeral-related events on a single page
• The ability to easily invite people to the page, and seamlessly update everyone if any event details change
• A custom URL, making the page easy to share and access
• Places to put links to obituaries, charities for donations, and preferred online condolence pages
• The ability to add events to personal calendars
• Maps and directions to all events
• Special articles on customs and etiquette (what to expect, what to wear, how to express condolences) from Everplans.com
By helping you more easily keep everyone in the loop, we hope that Funeral Update will relieve some of the stress so that you can focus on what's most important at a very difficult time.
