About The Cost

We urge you to understand the scope of the costs involved in caring for your loved one. We believe that each person should receive a suitable service. It is in this spirit that we work with any of our families as needed to help them achieve their goal of honoring their loved one at a price within their reach.

A recent trend in funerals is to hold traditional viewing and a funeral services before cremation. This option provides calling hours and a funeral service prior to the cremation of the deceased and typically involves the use of a rental casket or an alternative container. We are available to discuss the full range of options that we offer.

While a General Price List gives a family all the prices for a funeral service, please keep in mind that the “cash advance” items are extras that the family chooses; we do not have control of these prices. We will contract those services for you without any additional fees. These items are listed in the general price list below and include newspaper obituaries, death certificates, cemetery fees, etc.
