General Price List





Effective October 1, 2018


The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers.  You may choose only the items your 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.


In most areas of the country, state, or local law does not require that you buy a container to surround the casket in the grave.  However, many cemeteries require that you have such a container so that the grave will not sink in.  Either a grave liner or a burial vault will satisfy these requirements.


This list does not include prices for certain items you may ask us to buy for you, such as cemetery or crematory services, flower and newspaper notices.  When funeral home policy allows the funeral director to arrange for those items, the prices for those items will be shown on your bill or statement describing the funeral goods and services you selected.  Depending on the item or service purchased, we may charge you for our service in buying these items or be entitled to any volume or cash discounts according to professional / trade customs.
