The changing face, and business, of death: Meet the people working and building companies in the funeral industry
Filed on 10 July, 2017 in Contents, Features
Everyone will have to deal with it. No one wants to talk about it.
Some people make their careers, build businesses and spend their professional lives dealing with death.
When a person dies, it’s a tragedy for that person’s loved ones. It’s also big money. In 2012 in the U.S, cemeteries, crematories and funeral homes made more than $16 billion in revenue, according to the National Funeral Directors Association. It also estimates that in 2014, the median price of an adult’s funeral was $7,181 for a burial and $6,078 for a cremation.
Rinne Cain got his first taste of the industry in 1985.
“My grandmother had passed away,” he said. “She was 101.”
They went to the local funeral home, which charged him $900 for a headstone over a series of monthly payments.
He later found out that headstone cost the funeral home $90.
“I just figured there’s a niche and I need to fill it,” he said.
He spent two years gathering information about the funeral homes’ suppliers, then started Cascade Monuments & Urns.
He sells headstones, caskets and urns – the same ones you can get from the funeral home, but he sells them for a fraction of the cost. Click Here To Read More
