Frequently Asked Questions

I am looking for a funeral home

How do you get your prices and are they accurate?

The prices on our website were obtained via: call, email, fax, and the funeral home's General Price List. They were accurate when obtained and meant to be used for research.

We can't guarantee actual funeral home prices will match ours because prices can change over time. Parting’s itemized prices are an estimation from the funeral home’s General Price List.

When booking, please always ask funeral homes for their most recent prices over the phone, or request a General Price List in person. If our prices are not updated, please help other families by sending General Price Lists to us at [email protected].

Is it customary to negotiate prices with the funeral home, or are the listed prices set?

You can let the funeral home know to exclude the services that you don’t need.

I work in a hospital or a hospice

Why should I recommend Parting to families?

As we started talking to social workers in hospitals and hospice, we realized that Parting is actually solving a serious problem social workers are facing.  While the average person may have to deal with a death of a loved one only a few times in their life, a social worker is constantly helping families with these choices.  We've found that almost all social workers in hospices and hospitals have been forced to create their own version of a funeral home database in Excel or Word from anecdotal information or past funeral homes they've worked with. They are often asked questions about prices or services they don't have the answer to, which makes their job a lot harder than it should be. 

Social workers at hospitals like Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and hospices like Vitas Healthcare or Gentiva Hospice hand out our pamphlets that direct families to our website to provide better information than they previously could.

How can I order pamphlets to give out to families?

For our partners, we provide pamphlets to their families in need, and we are more than happy to discuss your needs and set up something similar with you.

How are you run, funded, and purpose?

We are a small team working out of Los Angeles that is funded by investors not affiliated with the funeral home industry.

This independence allows us to focus solely on empowering people with information to find the funeral service providers that best serve their needs.

We are constantly updating and adding funeral homes across the country as we work towards centralizing all their information into one place online so that it is transparent and easily searchable.
