Prelude exists to help families navigate 
the once-in-a-lifetime experience of pre-planning their funeral.

We’re committed to providing a meaningful pre-planning experience that goes beyond the logistics of preneed arrangements.

A need-driven pre-planning solution

Before we ever built our pre-planning platform, we spent months researching the pain points of death care.

After careful study of the industry, we were compelled to provide a human-focused pre-planning alternative to the highly-transactional offerings in the market.

We set out to build a modern pre-planning solution that facilitates deeper connection between planners, their families, and funeral homes.
