CCG Funeral Home Website - Responsive Design

Chapman, Cole & Gleason required a new funeral home website design to help foster an improved brand identity for their chain of funeral homes. It was also important that the new website included an efficient system for managing funeral service details and obituary listings for each of their locations. Human Service solutions worked with CCG to develop a new website that met their design needs and also integrated a customized content management system (CMS), allowing for easy site management by funeral directors and administrative staff. The website has greatly improved CCG’s capacity to service existing clients and reach new clients as well.

Obituary and Funeral Service Management

The website includes an obituary management system that makes it easy for funeral directors and administrative staff to publish full-featured obituary listings with a range of features, including:

  • Manage obituary content with instant publication and editing
  • Insert photos and video into obituary listings
  • Special military service designations
  • Donation link
  • Locations for funeral, burial and memorial services
  • Integrated directions with Google Maps
  • Guestbook comments with spam control and comment management

Mobile-Friendly Responsive Design

The new website utilizes a “responsive” design, which means it automatically scales to the appropriate display based on the visitor’s device, so whether on desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, visitors are presented with an optimal experience.

  • Sales to any device size - mobile or desktop

Working alongside Jason and the HSS Team is like working alongside a group of artists. Our website went from the proverbial blob of clay into a magnificent piece of working art.
