Service Pricing

We are committed to transparency in our business practices. This requires us to be upfront and open about our prices for both services and related products.
And for a business to be truly transparent, the staff needs to follow certain rules or guidelines that keep everyone accountable for their words and actions.
It’s easy to see that if our funeral service pulls this way yesterday and that way tomorrow when it comes to openness, communication and accountability, families would quickly lose their trust in us.

And trust is everything.

After all, the services we provide are unique, and the people we serve are in a very vulnerable position. We consider trust to be an essential part of the relationship we develop with the families we serve.

When It's a Question of Money

For families faced with the death of someone dear to them, it quickly becomes clear that funerals rank among the most expensive purchases they may ever make. It is our policy that no one be denied a funeral service because of limited financial resources. If you arrange for a funeral and do not have the sufficient funds to pay according to our General Price list (GPL) we will be pleased to discuss arrangements to fit an adjusted service to be within your means. The final costs can be overwhelming for the average family.

Yet even if you're the kind of person who feels very comfortable price-shopping for a new car or home appliance, you're likely to feel very uncomfortable comparing prices or negotiating over the details and cost of a funeral, whether it’s a pre-need or immediate need situation.

Our General Price List

If you’re looking to price a funeral services and products, we encourage you to download a copy of our current Price List. You’ll be able to print it out, and use it in funeral planning conversations with family members involved in making decisions. Every Funeral provider has a GPL.

We know it may be well worth taking the time to call around to compare prices before committing to any particular funeral home, product or service. That’s why we make our General Price List available to you through our website.

We encourage you to research your options, talk it over, and make the best decision for yourself and your loved ones.

Should you need any additional information, please call us. We will explain all your options thoroughly and clearly, as part of our commitment to transparency...and our commitment to you.


These prices are effective December 31, 2008 2014 but thereafter are subject to change without notice.
