Service Charges

To help you understand our price list and funeral costs we have prepared the following outline of the categories that make up a funeral account.  There are basically four sections that make up a funeral account: a service package, casket & merchandise selections, cash disbursements and taxes on applicable items ( service package and merchandise ).

To help consumers, legislation states that all funeral homes must provide an itemized price list of all of their related professional service charges as well as casket and merchandise charges. This list must be available at the consumers' request without cost or obligation.  While our price list is not made available online, we will gladly provide one upon request.

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 our level of professionalism, the quality of our facilities and our ethical standards. Consumers and families finally can learn first hand that there is a difference in the service we provide and they do not need to fall into the trap of traditional loyalty many funeral homes attempt to count on. Today, being good is not good enough. We trust that this service will give you one more reason to give the us serious consideration when seeking a funeral home that is pro-actively working towards providing you the highest standards of services and facilities while offering sensible and affordable solutions.  Whether your needs are a full  traditional funeral, a memorial service or the handling of a cremation or burial we believe that our combination of dignified, professional service and affordability offer the answer that many families are seeking.

Service Package

This section of the contract pertains to very specific packages designed based on the type of services your family has requested.  It is broken down into Professional and staff Services, Facilities and Equipment and Vehicles.  The packages are designed to be very specific so that you are not being charged for services or equipment that you are not making use of. A typical service can range anywhere from $1350.00 for direct cremation to over $5000.00 for a full traditional funeral.  Our icensed staff will asist you to determine the package that best suits your needs and wishes.

 

Casket & Merchandise Selections

This section is specific to the casket that a family selects. All of our caskets and merchandise are priced separately - meaning the price you see for the casket is for the casket itself with no other items included. This can often become confusing to families. Some of the other types of merchandise you might fine pleased to assist you.

 

Cash Disbursements

Cash disbursements are just as they imply: to aid the families we serve, we will cover third party expenses and place them on our account as a convenience so that everything is all on one account.

Strict legislation ensures 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 or Crematorium Charges
  • Coroner's Cremation Certificates
  • Reception Catering
