DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- FuneralHomes.com, www.funeralhomes.com, the country’s largest funeral home directory and #1 referral source for the $15 Billion Funeral Industry is proud to announce the acquisition of www.Cremations.com, which will compliment their funeral planning suite of services.

“Cremations make up over 40% of the funeral industry and we expect to see continued growth in this area. As the current economic conditions continue, main street continues to be hit hard and more people are turning to cremations as an option to burial. I am extremely excited about the future, and I expect great things with the acquisition of this property,” said Darren Cleveland, President and CEO of City Advertising, www.cityadvertising.com, owners of the FuneralHomes.com network.

The industry is experiencing consolidation yet again and FuneralHomes.com is positioned to assist independently owned funeral homes in light of the recent SCI and Stewart Enterprise merger. “It shocks me that multi-billion dollar companies in the funeral industry overlooked this potential acquisition. You would think a bit of energy would go into internet positioning considering over 85% of the country will be online by the end of 2014. We will continue to support independently owned funeral homes by delivering the most cost effective advertising program in the industry and Cremations.com will further assist in doing just that,” Darren Cleveland, went onto say.
