It is your right, and our desire, that you have as complete an understanding as possible regarding the cost of our services.
The biggest factor is the time element in terms of our personnel and the use of the funeral home facilities. The maintenance of this service is unending; that is, it must be available 24 hours every day of the year. There needs to be a licensed funeral director available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Therefore, ours is a 168-hour week and not the 40-hour week which is the accepted standard.
Many phases of our work are apparent; others are not. No two funerals are exactly alike. Traditions, customs, social standing, personal feeling, financial ability and a multitude of other influences affect each funeral. Our services must conform to each individual family’s wishes and their personal and religious needs.
The services listed below require an average of over 60 work-hours per funeral. In addition to these services, the licensed funeral director is also available following the funeral services to assist the family.
Generally, the charges for a funeral are divided into five categories: Professional Services, Preparation and Care of Deceased including embalming (when requested), Use of Facilities, Mechandise (Casket, Burial Vault, Urn) and Transportation.
For your convenience we offer several services packages. You may however, choose to select these same services from our Itemized Price List.
