Funeral Quote Builder

Consumers today are more confused than ever on what a funeral actually costs, largely due to the media and online world. At ObitTree, we’ve captured funeral cost data from death care providers across North America to help you understand funeral costs and empower you to build a quote based on your individual needs. While these numbers do not reflect the exact cost of a funeral in your region, you’ll be able to easily build a quote and walk away with a better idea of what to expect when it comes to the cost of a funeral. Your last step, if you wish, will be to submit your findings to a death care provider in your area for a more accurate and personalized quote.

funeral fund

Contribute to the Funeral Fund

End-of-life expenses are more than just the cost of a funeral. When a loved one passes, the family is faced with legal fees, cemetery and executor costs, and more. ObitTree has developed a way for family and friends of a loved one to contribute to end-of-life expenses through A Helping Hand, in partnership with GoFundMe. This crowdfunding initiative, already seen as a standard expression of sympathy in many countries, gives families and funeral professionals the tools they need when they need them most.
