General Price List

Honoring Tradition. Celebrating Life. Since 1832.

These prices are effective as of April 1, 2016, but are 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 Services of Funeral Director and Staff    $2,300.00

 

Our basic services include: conducting the arrangement conference, planning the funeral, consulting with family and clergy, shelter of remains, preparing and filing of necessary notices, obtaining necessary authorizations and permits, coordinating with the cemetery, crematory, or other third parties.  In addition, this fee includes a proportionate share of our basic overhead costs.

 

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 of remains.)

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, such as direct cremation or immediate burial, that does not require you to pay for it.
