WordPress Obituaries Software: Easy to Setup and Manage

Even though the online obituary industry is relatively new, there are many different options for funeral homes and cemeteries. Some third-party services offer to take care of everything for the funeral home. However, in recent years families have discovered that many of these free online services are selling personal data to third-party advertisers. This rightfully strikes many as disrespectful.

Funeral homes and cemeteries cold try and setup something on their own website, but without the right tools and skills, it can be a nightmare to setup and manage.

WP Funeral Press has the perfect solution. It offers an affordable WordPress plugin for your website. The plugin is simple to install and easy to manage. It allows funeral homes and cemeteries to keep their personal data of families confidential.
