Funeral Costs

To help you understand Funeral Costs we have prepared an outline of the categories that make up a funeral account. There are basically four sections that make up the total funeral account: Casket & Merchandise Selections, Professional Service Charges, Cash Disbursements and unfortunately the government imposed taxes on applicable items.


We pride ourselves on always being one of the most reasonably priced funeral homes in the area, although many expect our charges to be much higher given the level of professionalism, quality of facilities and ethical standards. Consumers and families finally can learn first hand that there is a difference and families needn't fall into the trap of traditional loyalty many funeral homes attempt to count on. 


A Large number of Funeral Homes Charge extra for many of the things we include in our Service Fee. If you would like to have a copy of our Funeral Price List, you can either stop by the funeral home and request a copy or we can mail one to your home.



Professional Service Charges


Our Service Fee for Professional Services Includes all the things listed below:


  • Motor Vehicles -  Funeral Coach, Pallbearers Vehicle, 2 limousines for Family (if desired)
  • All Staff and Equipment Necessary for Funeral Service
  • Professional Care and Preparation of your Loved one
  • All Necessary Service Folders for Church Service with Photos  as well as Guest Book and acknowledgement cards



Casket & Merchandise Selections


This section is specific to the casket that a family selects. All of our caskets and merchandise is priced separately - meaning the price you see for the casket is for the casket itself with no other items included that can often become confusing to families. Some of the other types of merchandise you might find in this section of the funeral account are: Burial Vaults, Cremation Urns.   Again, each is itemized based on your selection and a total is itemized under the "Casket & Merchandise Selections."



Cash Disbursements


Cash Disbursements are as they imply. To aid the families we serve, we will cover third party expenses and place them on our account as a convenience until the estate is understood. 


Our funeral homes ensure that these items are not marked up and only the Exact "cost" is included on the funeral account. Typical cash disbursements might include:


• Newspaper Notices
• Clergy Honorariums
• Cemetery Charges
• Church and Hall rentals
• Reception Catering
• Organist
• Soloist
• Flowers
