BOSTON, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Don't want a mediocre funeral for your loved one? Check out the BostonFuneralGuide.com and explore your many Boston area options.
"There are people who don't want a traditional funeral," Rev. Lisa Donegan says, "But they don't even know they have a choice about how to proceed. You can educate people all you want, but in time of crisis, of mourning, people go to the fastest place they can, a funeral home. The funeral homes, though, have a small group of people they exclusively work with, such as the same ministers and chaplains. What my difficulty has been is helping people understand there is a different approach."
That's why Donegan is so pleased with the launch of the BostonFuneralGuide.com, the first-ever online guide for funeral planning in the Boston area. While several companies produce local wedding-planning guides, no one has created a local funeral-planning guide to inform consumers of their local funeral planning options.
"We want to help people know their options and plan what's right for them. Thanks to the baby boomers, funerals are becoming more and more unique and personal," says Anna Copley, cofounder of the BostonFuneralGuide.com.
The BostonFuneralGuide.com is part of TheFuneralSite.com, a national funeral-planning Web site based in Seattle.
Nearly 30 categories are included in the BostonFuneralGuide.com. Traditional categories include an interactive map of all the funeral homes in the region and a list of all the active cemeteries. Other categories offer more unique services such as a motorcycle hearse, ash scattering by boat or plane, dove or butterfly release, home funeral assistance, a funeral concierge service, anatomical gift programs, grief support services and bagpipers.
The Guide includes articles focused on local issues such as Boston Low Cost
