5 Best Funeral Home WordPress Themes for 2017

In this brief roundup, we look at the best funeral home WordPress themes now available for 2017.  Maybe you’re a developer building a WordPress site for a client, or maybe you’re a small business owner doing it yourself. Either way, you should find what you’re looking for on this list. We hope. Life is short–we’d hate to think we wasted your time, or, worse, ours.

We realized going in that there wouldn’t be a lot of funerary themes to fill up this list. Though we considered including generic themes that could be adapted to funeral homes and services–there’s many church and worship themes that might do the job, given a bit of massaging–we decided, instead, to keep the list short and feature only sharply targeted, purpose-oriented designs.

Our five selections are all relatively recent releases. There’s nothing old, tired or obsolete here: all five are responsive, cross-browser compatible, and all that good stuff. The designs are contemporary. You’ll find no grotesque & dated gradients, clunky JavaScript, or weird dimensions.

Finally, if you need some hosting for your funeral home website, we recommend Bluehost.
