Basic Goods and Services

 

Basic Services of Funeral Director and Staff

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; and staff assistance prior to, during and following the funeral including coordination with those providing other portions of the funeral, i.e. cemetery, crematory and others. Also included in these charges are fixed business costs relative to our facility such as labor, insurance, utilities, taxes and other ongoing expenses necessary to be in a position to provide facilities and services. 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 non-ceremonial cremation, immediate burial, forwarding remains and receiving remains.)

$ 2,395

 

Embalming

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.
