General Price List

GENERAL PRICE LIST                                                                              February 1, 2017

In compliance with the Federal Trade Commission, we are required to provide you with this General Price List for retention.  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.

Our fee includes, but is not limited to, the following:  staff to respond to initial request for service­; arrangement conference with family or responsible party; consultation with family and clergy; arrangement of funeral; preparation and filing of necessary notices, authorizations and consents; coordination with those providing other portions of the funeral.  Also included are overhead expenses relative to our facility such as insurance, maintenance and utility expenses, secretarial and administrative costs, and equipment and inventory expenses.  This fee will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements you select.  It is already included in our charges for direct cremation, immediate burials, and forwarding and receiving of remains.
