Final Fling is the Marketplace for business when it comes to end-of-life planning. Our award-winning website welcomes thousands of visitors every month; active planners who are managing end-of-life plans and ‘shopping around’ in our Marketplace. We’re part of a movement.

How it works
The benefits

Marketplace for business

The Marketplace is for all types of business, whether self-employed, sole-trader, SME or corporate:

  • personal services – like Celebrants, soul midwives, counsellors, biographers and photographers
  • small business services – like family funeral directors, coffin-makers, specialised transport
  • nation-wide services – funeral plan providers, legal and financial advice.

Choose the right entry level to harness our Marketplace for business. Whichever level you choose, everyone gets a free listing in the Marketplace Directory and a free Posting Page. Then you can upgrade to suit your business.

Level 1 | SOLO | test the water

Shout about the products or services you offer using your unique Posting Page. Be seen by thousands of Final Fling planners when they sign in. Promote offers as often as you like.


Level 2 | PRO | wade in

Beat the competition. Float to the top of the Marketplace Directory.

Level 3 | PARTNER | splash out

Let’s work together to promote your business and profile what you’re up to. Share chatty news or longer features on our blog pages. Be profiled in our Deadline newsletter. Final Fling is regularly contacted by the media: journalists, broadcasters and researchers working on documentaries, films and TV programmes. See some of our coverage. We can make helpful connections with the media for our Partners.

How to

In the Marketplace, enter your business name in the Search bar. If you already have a listing, simply click on ‘update your listing’ to get going. If you don’t have a listing, you can create one here and get posting in minutes.

Helping you tackle the taboo

It can be hard for people working with death, dying and funerals to find an appropriate place – and tone of voice – to connect with ‘customers’. As a business or industry, this is different from other sectors. It’s highly sensitive. For some, it’s a taboo. We’ve researched changing attitudes to the taboo and know how to tackle it. Founder, Barbara Chalmers, is an award-winning communication strategist acting as a consultant to Government, local government, NHS and charity sector organisations.

That’s why Final Fling is award-winning… in recognition of our direct, pragmatic, spirited, creative, supportive voice of reason:

“5 star rated, Best New Website”
