Viewing, Visitation and Funeral Service Followed by Cremation
If you choose to have cremation take place after the funeral rather than burial, costs would apply as follows: Our services, facilities, transportation and equipment as described in SERVICES would be $4,120.00 and includes a cloth covered casket. You may also add any of the CASH ADVANCE ITEMS at your discretion.
Cremation Taking Place First with a Memorial Service Later
If cremation were to take place followed by a memorial service, without the body present, our charge would be $2,345.00. This includes transportation, making arrangements with family and helping with obituaries, social security, veterans benefits and life insurance, if desired, use of our funeral home for the service or the funeral directors present at a church or other facility to help with services, guest book, service folders and thank you cards.

Cash Advance Items
As a courtesy, the funeral home often places charges incurred by the family from outside sources (such as obituaries, grave opening charges, organist, clergy honorarium, flowers) on the funeral home statement so that the family does not have to pay each charge separately. Obituaries in daily papers are usually charged by length. Weekly papers generally charge a set fee whatever the length. Please contact us for more information regarding specific costs as they vary depending on location.
