General Price List:

These prices are effective as of April 1, 2013, but thereafter subject to change without notice.

The goods and services shown below are those 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 STAFF & FACILITY CHARGES $1,495.00 

Our fee for the services of the funeral director and staff includes, but is not limited to, staff to respond to initial request for service; arrangement conference with family or responsible party; arrangement of funeral; preparation and filing of necessary authorizations and permits; recording vital statistics; preparation and placement of obituary notices; staff assistance prior to, during and following the funeral, including coordination with those providing other portions of the funeral, e.g. cemetery, crematory and others. The funeral home has also incorporated into the above fee a basic facilities charge of $785.00 which is a proportional charge used to meet overhead expenses such as professional licensing, legal and accounting fees , insurance, building and utility expenses, parking lot and grounds, maintenance, taxes, equipment, furnishings, and inventory costs, recordkeeping, and secretarial and administrative 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.) 

EMBALMING $665.00

Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain  funeral arrangements, such as 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.
