A funeral live streaming service gives funeral directors the opportunity to offer families a viewing platform beyond the walls of a chapel.
How Funeralcast Works With Funeral Directors
Our webcasts can be watched by an unlimited number of people, from anywhere in the world - meaning no one needs to miss out on saying goodbye. Research shows that 35% of families would like to organise a webcast if given the option, but do not know it is possible.
Funeralcast can help.
We Step You Through the Technology
We work closely with funeral directors and their staff to outline our suite of streaming and recording services. We provide training, and we are there to guide through the set-up stage, and beyond.

What Our Clients Say
Morleys Funerals - Townsville
After witnessing funeral attendees using iPads and smartphones to record funeral services for loves ones who could not be present, Morleys Funerals knew there had to be a simpler way to connect people to a service.
The answer was Funeralcast.
Using Morleys' existing audio-visual equipment, Funeralcast was able to establish a live streaming service in a matter of hours, and with minimal cost to the funeral home. The chapel's six existing cameras were expertly linked to the Funeralcast platform, a dedicated webpage was established, and a secure link was provided to enable unlimited viewing of the service by friends and family.
H. Parsons Funeral Directors - Illawarra
In looking to establish a live streaming service for funerals, there were a number of factors H. Parsons Funeral Directors took into consideration, but in particular: cost, ease of set-up, and support. The preference was for a simple and quick booking system that enabled the funeral home to have control of the communication with their families, and to be able to outsource the technical elements so as to be 100 per cent focused on the family during a service.
Brian Hood, General Manager at H Parsons said: 'For all these reasons, we choose Funeralcast. They have been a terrific partner. We have a dedicated portal for booking a webstream that takes no more than one minute to complete, yet keeps us in control of the communication with our client family. They take care of all aspects of the webstream, including testing the equipment before each service, starting and stopping the stream, and taking care of the technical support for our clients."
H. Parsons found two other unexpected benefits of web streaming with Funeralcast. The first was a new way to engage with the nursing homes in the region rather than sending buses to one of their chapels, and the second was having a back-up recording available on the Funeralcast system in the event their own recording was lost.
