Seeing a project go from an idea to completion is always rewarding. That is often the feeling our team gets when they put the final touches on one of our funeral home websites. What’s even better though is when clients call us to say how happy they are with their new website and all the compliments they’ve been receiving.
If you’re looking for some tips or inspiration for your new funeral home website, continue reading below. We can’t showcase every website we loved building last year, but we can highlight a few of our favorites. In no particular order, here are 10 funeral home website designs our team was proud to work on last year.
First on this year’s list is Jardine Funeral Home. This funeral website features a beautiful exterior shot of the facility that welcomes visitors to the website. Right below that, they have 2 clear calls to action (CTA) which direct the user to their preferred method of disposition.
Legacy Options demonstrates excellent funeral home website design practices and elements. Besides just the beautiful homepage image and tagline, the site’s navigation is clean and bold. Visitors can easily navigate to different pages.
Knowing that pricing is important and one of the first questions a family may have – they’ve also included a bright and bold CTA at the top right that draws your eye right away.
This site has some of the best imagery I have ever seen for funeral home websites. The Ray-Nowell funeral website has great shots of the communities the firm serves. Upon first glance, you can quickly identify the firm’s three locations and find the contact info for each.
People like being able to put a face to the name. Plus, when it comes to finding someone to help honor a loved one, trust is important. Goldman Funeral Group‘s website does a great job of accomplishing both. Upon visiting the page, visitors are welcomed by a great photo of the father-son team. If you scroll down the page, you’ll find quotes from Irwin and Benjamin about their commitment to serving families.
The Szal Funeral Home website is one of my all-time personal favorites. Rather than a typical sliding gallery of the facility and service area, Szal’s website uses this valuable real estate to showcase their most popular packages. Families can quickly scroll through the gallery until they find the service package they wish to learn more about.
Pecan Grove has one of the best funeral home websites when it comes to user experience. Besides just a stunning homepage image with a slight overlay; the website is laid out nicely and easy to navigate. As you scroll down the homepage, there are sections for preplanning, sending flowers, viewing obituaries, and finding grief resources. No matter your reason for visiting, Pecan Grove has made sure there is something for everyone to check out.

The first word that comes to mind when looking at the Price Funeral Home website is simple. Between the clean looking navigation bar at the top and the
Atlantis Simple Cremation has something on their homepage that no other firm on this year’s list has – an arrange online CTA right at the top. Besides just promoting their direct cremation package, the website includes a CTA so families can complete arrangements from the comfort of home. Understandably, this is something, not every firm offers. But for those who do, this design makes it easy for families to start planning as soon as they visit
Last but certainly not least on our list of 2019 funeral home websites is the Standard Cremation & Funeral Center. What sets this website apart from others on the list is the message from the owner.
