The “Man in the Van” reprised

By Funeral Director Daily / July 19, 2022 /

I’m guessing the funeral home entrepreneur “Man in the Van” has been around for going on 50 years.  My idea of the “Man in the Van” or mobile funeral home operator, is that individual funeral director business operator who operates without a permanent venue.  In essence, they take calls over the internet or the phone…

Another new concept. . . can it catch on?

By Funeral Director Daily / April 25, 2022 /

Only a couple of weeks ago Funeral Director Daily published an article entitled “Is an Event Center in your business future”.  I thought it was a fairly innocuous article about the growth of “event centers” and their potential as an off-site component of a retail death care business — both for direct cremation firms and…

More companies hope to cash in on the changing face of Death Care

By Funeral Director Daily / September 17, 2021 /

I recently read this article where Bank of America has profiled 14 future “moonshot” technologies that they believe could offer vast wealth to those who are lucky enough to invest in them.  In reading that article, I realized that, to a certain extent we have, maybe not moonshot technologies, but at least planetary technologies in…

Death care suppliers. . . .they are busy too

By Funeral Director Daily / January 20, 2021 /

Funeral Director Daily has written a lot of articles in the past year about how busy funeral homes have been with death calls.  It’s just the way it has been for funeral homes in the year of COVID. What we have not done is find any articles on how suppliers are very busy.  We have…
