Memorials is a network of local funeral providers who specialize in offering
simple, low cost cremations and burials. Our ethos is to de-mystify the
costs and services surrounding funeral services. Our network consists
of local independent family-owned funeral providers throughout the US and
Canada. We aim to offer complete visibility in the service's offered
and in the price. A Simple Cremation is just that – the price quoted
by each funeral provider in each area is exactly what you can expect to
pay. Our providers have been carefully selected for the DFS
network because they can fulfill our service promise. Consumers using
the Internet to search for low-cost local providers can be assured that
DFS Memorials will direct them to a local, reputable and licensed provider
who can fulfill a basic cremation or burial at an affordable price.
DFS Memorials has been launched in Canada and the USA by Canadian Funerals Online and US Funerals Online, as a new alternative network providing consumers with simple, affordable and dignified low cost funeral services.
We have witnessed a growing trend in people arriving on the Canadian and US Funeral Homes Directory site's as a result of a search for an “affordable cremation”, and this spawned the inception of the DFS network. Economic uncertainties, rising unemployment, and changing consumer preferences toward cremations as a low-cost alternative have conspired in recent years to compel people to seek out direct, ‘no-frills’ cremations. Gone are the glory days of corporate funeral companies who profiteered by offering elaborate funeral services with a multitude of expensive ‘extras’. Today’s consumer wants to know what the cost is before they even call the funeral home. And the forthcoming ‘Baby Boom’ generation are not the traditionalists of the past – they are demanding simple, cost-effective and personalized end-of-life funeral solutions.
The Canadian and US Funerals Online directories have been established for over 10 years and are rated by Google and Bing as one of the most reliable sources for funeral searches. These days 1 in 4 Internet searches for funeral services include the words ‘affordable’, ‘price’, ‘cost’ or ‘cheap’ and with over 60,000 visitors a month using the directory sites, we are in a prime position to market the services of DFS Memorials. The sophisticated metrics we operate on our web sites have allowed us to measure consumer response to the launch of the DFS Memorials web site. And the initial response is over-whelming, with over 500 consumers a day using DFS Memorials to locate their local low-cost cremation provider.
A number of changes affecting the funeral industry revolve around the increased acceptance and growing popularity of cremation. About 865,000 remains were cremated in the United States and Canada in 2008, equating to more than 25 percent of the nearly 3.3 million deaths in those two countries during that year. This reflects how for an increasingly cost-conscious consumer, there is little question why cremation is proving the preferred option and the rate is rising.
