Innovation #1 – Funeral & Cremation Information Hotline

This hotline provides valuable information to families who are faced with having to plan a funeral but are not sure where to begin. You can check out the hotline by calling (888) 843-6110.

Innovation #2 – Udressit© Envelopes

Anyone who has ever experienced the loss of a loved one knows that sending out thank you cards can be a very tedious and time consuming task. To make this easier, Carson & Son designed a special kind of memorial envelope with a peel and stick label. After testing various designs and receiving rave reviews from families, Carson & Son formed a new business called Udressit© and is now distributing these innovative memorial envelopes to other funeral homes around the country. To learn more about Udressit© or how your local hometown funeral home can offer these envelopes go to the company website at or click here.

Innovation #3 – Special Celebration Themes

Recognizing that the needs of today’s families were not always being met by a traditional funeral service, Carson & Son has pioneered the creation of a whole new style of memorial service called Special Celebration Themes. These unique events offer families an memorable and uplifting way to celebrate the life of their loved one. Special Celebration Themes have been so popular that other funeral home owners around the country have begun offering these events in their own community under an exclusive licensing arrangement with Carson & Son.
