These Prices are effective January 1, 2020, but are subject to change without notice.
Because of our greatly reduced and affordable prices, payment is required in full at the conclusion of the arrangement conference.
The goods and services below are those that we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any funeral arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement we provide describing the funeral goods and services you selected.
BASIC SERVICE OF FUNERAL DIRECTOR AND STAFF $2,300.00
Our fee for the basic services of the funeral director and staff includes, but is not limited to, staff response to initial request for service; arrangement conference with family and responsible parties; preparation and filing of necessary permits, authorizations and certificates; recording of vital statistics; coordinating with the crematory. Also included in this charge are overhead expenses relative to the building and utility expenses, taxes, equipment, furnishings, record keeping, secretarial and administrative expenses. This fee for our basic services will be added to the cost of the service you select. (This fee is already included, and reduced in our charge for direct cremations, immediate burials and forward or receiving remains.)
