We've developed a planner to help you use the General Price List, as well as additional information, to estimate what your total funeral cost may be, depending on which service, merchandise, and third-party costs are applicable. It is available on our "How Much Does a Funeral Cost?" page. 

Additionally, we've compiled the itemized service charges several for many of the most common service types into subtotaled categories, to make it easier for you to compare to similar services from other funeral providers. These can be found on our Comparing Funeral Prices page.

The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire.

This list does not include prices for certain items that you may ask us to buy for you, such as cemetery or crematory services, flowers, newspaper notices, death certificates, clergy/church and/or musician services.

Professional Service Charges

 

 

Basic Services of Funeral Director and Overhead (Non-Declinable) - $2750.00

Our basic service charge includes, but is not limited to, staff to respond to initial request for service; arrangement conference with family or responsible party; preparation and filing of necessary certificates and permits; placement of obituary notices; planning of funeral arrangements; and coordination of service with cemetery, crematory, vault companies and others as required. Also included in this charge are overhead expenses relative to our facility such as insurance, maintenance and utility expenses, secretarial and administrative costs, and equipment and inventory expenses.

 

This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements you select. (This fee is already included in our charges for direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding or receiving remains.)

Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial or when refrigeration or use of dry ice is available.
