Funeral Trends

Like any other industry, funeral service has trends based on consumer preference and demand. These days the demand for cremation service is, by far, the most prevalent trend in the industry. Families from all over North America have shifted from the traditional funeral service, opting for more efficient, affordable and environmentally friendly death care options. Two generations ago, traditional funerals (visitation, funeral service and service at the cemetery) were common. It was what everyone expected.Funeral Options Forest

The Shift to Cremation

As the demand for cremation services increased, there has been a shift in the types of services available. Many more families are choosing cremation and holding a memorial service afterwards. Family members and friends still came together to pay their respects to the deceased and find emotional support but they did so in less formal ways.

In addition, many families are opting to forgo somber funerals in favor of more creative, modern and personalized celebrations of life or memorial services which have become quite popular because there are no limits to the how, where, and when the life of a loved one can be celebrated. Understanding these trends is a large part of what we do at Conner & Koch funeral home as part of a constant effort to provide families with the services, products and experience that they are looking for in a funeral home.

We know that the needs and expectations of our families are changing and we've responded with funeral service options tailored to these new expectations. Each of our experienced and compassionate funeral home staff is ready and willing to help find the right affordable funeral service option for every family we serve. Also, you can rest assured that when you entrust a loved one into our care, that you will be treated as if you are part of ours.


In  recent  years,  crowdfunding  has  exploded  in  popularity  with  people  using  campaigns  to  raise  money  for  trips,  scholarships  and  so  much  more.  The  funeral  industry  is  no  exception  to  this  trend  with  thousands  of  families  using  different  platforms  to  help  cover  their  loved  one’s  funeral  expenses.  Funeral  crowdfunding  can  be  used  to  raise  funds  to  help  cover  the  cost  of  a  funeral,  help  support  the  surviving  family  and  so  much  more. 

Our  funeral  home  uses  a  platform  in  partnership  with  GoFundMe  called A  Helping  Hand. If  you  want  to  learn  more  about  crowdfunding,  please  ask  one  of  our  funeral  directors  for  more  information. 

Planning  A  Funeral  Online

The  internet  has  completely  transformed  how  consumers  research  a  product  or  make  a  purchase  online.  And  the  funeral  industry  is  no  exception  to  this.  Over  the  past  few  years,  more  families  have  begun  to  make  their  funeral  arrangements  online.  Being  in  the  comfort  of  your  own  home  and  surrounded  by  loved  ones  has  been  said  to  help  make  the  process  a  little  bit  easier.  If  you  would  like  to  begin  an  online  arrangement,  please  click  here.

Different  Ways  to  Pay  Tribute  to  A  Loved  One 

25  years  ago,  the  only  way  you  could  express  your  condolences  to  someone  was  by  speaking  to  them  or  writing  them  a  letter.  Thanks  to  advancements  to  technology,  the  way  we  honor  a  loved  one  or  express  our  condolences  has  completely  changed.  With  tools  like  the  Book  of  Memories  (BOM),  families  can  now  have  online  memorial  pages  where  users  can  pay  tribute  to  their  loved  one.  With  the  BOM,  your  family  can  record  video  condolences,  share  videos  and  photos,  leave  heartfelt  messages  or  even  make  a  donation  in  honor  of  the  deceased.  To  learn  more  about  the  Book  of  Memories,  speak  to  one  of  our  funeral  directors.

Rise  of  Cremation

Many  experts  are  now  predicting  that  the  cremation  rate  will  exceed  70%  by  the  year  2030.  In  the  past  few  years,  the  popularity  of  cremation  has  risen  and  more  than  50%  of  families  across  the  country  are  selecting  cremation  over  burial.  As  more  and  more  people  have  less  religious  affiliation,  the  idea  of  planning  a  traditional  funeral  service  is  less  appealing.  Instead,  families  are  now  looking  for  services  that  offer  more  personalization  options  at  a  more  affordable  price. 

A  Better  Understanding  About  Mental  Health 

Thanks  to  research  by  scholars  and  academics  globally,  we  are  beginning  to  have  a  better  understanding  of  mental  health  and  how  to  treat  it.  Research  has  helped  us  as  funeral  professionals  better  understand  grief  and  how  it  can  be  coped  with.  As  mental  health  awareness  continues  to  improve,  it  is  likely  that  new  coping  materials  and  practices  will  be  developed  to  help  families  treat  their  grief  and  adjust  to  life  without  their  loved  one.    

Thinking about Your Funeral Options

The arrangements you make will be influenced by the lifestyle of your deceased family member; the time of year, your budget, and the number of people in attendance. But you don't have to think about it all on your own; we're here to help. That's what we do; it's our passion to help families celebrate the life of their loved one. We believe that every family is unique and every life must be memorialized in a unique way, traditional, modern or otherwise.
