Candle Memorials Website

Candle Memorials

Advertising or promoting a funeral business comes with its own unique challenges. A funeral tends to be the only time when directors gain any significant exposure – yet it would be in extremely bad taste for them to use such an event as a marketing opportunity. In response to this, the NFFD has created "Candle MemorialsExternal Website" – an ingenious social media application that enables mourners to collectively commemorate a loved-one online via the funeral director's website, whilst at the same time providing the funeral director with a tactful, ethical, widely-viewed and recurring source of free promotion.

Funeral  Directors Register Website

The Funeral Directors RegisterExternal Website is an online directory created by the NFFD, containing contact details of every funeral director in the UK. Receiving thousands of hits per month from members of the public actively seeking funeral directors and subsidiary services in their local areas, NFFD members featured on the site benefit from a highly visible advert plus a free 'reciprocal link', granting consumers immediate access from the Register to members individual websites, thus increasing their internet prominence.
