General Price List

These prices are effective January 1, 2017 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.

PROFESSIONAL STAFF SERVICES

Basic Services of Funeral Director & Staff $1,195

Our professional service charge includes: 24-hour availability; consultation with family; preparation and filing of authorizations, certificates and permits; and a proportionate share of our overhead costs. The 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 cremation, immediate burial and forwarding and receiving the remains.)

Embalming:

Embalming is a chemical process which provides temporary preservation of the body and eliminates health hazards. A person licensed by this state must perform the procedure. 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 that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.

Standard Embalming $895
Embalming after Autopsy $1,095
Other Preparation of the Body $350

Includes the following services as needed: washing, disinfecting, dressing, cosmetology, restorative art, hairdressing and casketing.

Use of Staff & Equipment:

For Funeral or Memorial Service at Church $695
For Cemetery Committal/Graveside Service $395
Private Family Viewing $595

Immediate family members may view the deceased privately for up to one hour in our viewing room during normal business hours. Please inquire about evening, weekend and extended viewing time options. An additional preparation fee of $200 will apply when an autopsy has been performed.

Family-witnessed Cremation $250

For those that want the peace-of-mind of being present for the cremation, we will schedule the cremation at a mutually agreed upon time. An upgraded cremation container is recommended.

Celebrant Services $275

For families who prefer a highly-personalized service or do not have a clergy member to officiate, we offer the service of trained Celebrants. Our Celebrant will meet with your family and create an event that is personalized and will be truly memorable. Our Celebrant Service is available to both faith-based and non-church affiliated families and may take place in one of our chapels, at the cemetery or other location. Our Celebrants are life tribute professionals and can incorporate any number of ideas into the ceremony including:
Music and Songs (live and taped) • Candles • Photos, Picture Boards and Videos • Balloon Release • Eulogies, Religious or Spiritual Readings and Poems • Family Stories and Remembrances

CASH ADVANCES

This list does not include prices for certain items you may ask us to buy for you such as cemetery charges, newspaper notices, clergy fees, and music. The prices for those items will be shown on the statement describing the goods and services you selected.

As an accommodation, the funeral home will pay a third party that provides services and merchandise to the Buyer in connection with the funeral, and will list those charges as “cash advances” on the Statement of Funeral Goods and Services Selected which is provided to the Buyer at the end of the funeral arrangements. Notwithstanding the fact that the funeral home is arranging the payment to the third party, the contractual arrangement is between the Buyer and the third party. The funeral home is not in control of the third party providing services or merchandise to the Buyer and will not be responsible for any of the third party’s acts or omissions.

PAYMENT & CREDIT POLICY

Our firm has established a uniform credit policy to serve all families fairly and to alleviate misunderstandings. A sound credit policy enables us to contain our costs to the families we serve. As a small business providing services and merchandise, we are totally dependent upon our clients for prompt payment. Our general credit policy is that the entire amount of the funeral is due and payable prior to services being rendered. We realize that caring for the death of a loved one is often unexpected and unplanned. For your convenience, we offer 12 payment options:

Personal Check • Bank Check • Money Order • Cash • Visa • MasterCard • Discover • American Express • Debit Card • Prearrangement • Insurance Assignment • Paypal

Assignable Life Insurance: Life insurance may be used as a means of full or partial payment for funeral and other related expenses. We work with Beta Capital, a third party firm, who accepts insurance assignments. A fee of 5% of the assigned amount will be charged and reflected on your statement of goods and services as an “insurance processing fee.”

SPECIAL SITUATIONS

As a community service, it is our policy to offer our services and facilities at no cost to infants less than one year of age as well as those in public emergency service who lost their life in the line of duty. Services for children and special groups are offered at a reduced rate. It is our policy that no one be denied a service because of limited financial resources. If you would like to arrange a service and do not have sufficient funds to pay in accordance with the Payment and Credit Policy outlined in our General Price List, we will be pleased to discuss alternative arrangements.

PRE-ARRANGEMENT GUARANTEE FEE

We are able to lock in pre-paid pre-arrangements so there’s no additional financial outlay by your family. Ask your counselor for details.

We have developed an end-of-life planning guide to help families answer important questions as they plan their final wishes.
