Services with the body present for viewing and/or services that involve burial of the body require a casket. A rental casket can be used if cremation follows a visitation or funeral; a steel rental casket is available for $990, and a solid poplar for $1175. A casket is not necessary if immediate cremation is desired; the required basic cremation container is included in our immediate cremation charge.
Every casket we stock is manufactured in North America. We do not buy cheap caskets imported from overseas and charge high markups on them; we buy good caskets, made here, and charge fairly for them.
The casket you select can be a major portion of the overall funeral expense, and so we feel it is important to offer you a wide selection of caskets in an affordable range. We carry seven models priced under $2000, five of which are less than $1800; our highest-priced model is $3200. At the funeral home, rather than display pictures or endpieces for you to select from, we stock the full caskets at both locations. This gives you the ability to see the actual casket you are purchasing to ensure its quality. Many of our caskets may also be available from our suppliers in multiple colors and styles, further increasing your selection options (although additional time for delivery may be required).
