The services we offer include a range from traditional standard funerals to immediate burial or immediate cremation.
A traditional funeral includes: removal of the person from the place of death to the funeral home, making arrangements with the next of kin or legally responsible party, filing and securing all the legal papers, making arrangements with the cemetery, vault company, clergy, fraternal organizations and others, embalming for visitation, preparing the person for viewing, printing the register book, memorial folders or cards, supervising and the use of the funeral home for visitation, direction of the funeral, the hearse to the cemetery and delivery of flowers to the cemetery and family home.
Additional expenses involved would be: the cost of a casket, an outer interment receptacle (vault), the purchase of a grave, the opening & closing cost of the grave, newspaper notices, certified copies of the death certificate and a clergy honorarium.
Immediate burial would include: the removal, making necessary arrangements, filing & securing legal papers (as above), placing the person into a wooden container (suitable for burial) and transportation to the cemetery.
Additional expenses involved would be: the cost of a better casket, (if preferred) an outer interment receptacle (vault), the purchase of a grave, the opening & closing cost of the grave, newspaper notices, certified copies of the death certificate and a graveside service, if desired.
Immediate cremation is very similar to immediate burial, so it would include the same items except: placing the person into a wooden container (suitable for cremation), transportation to the crematory (not cemetery) and return of the ashes to the funeral home.
Additional expenses involved would be: the crematory fee, the cost of a better casket, an urn, the purchase of a grave, the opening & closing cost of the grave, newspaper notices, certified copies of the death certificate and a memorial service, if desired.
NOTE: Any items from a traditional funeral can be added to an immediate burial or cremation according to the charges on the general price list, to make the funeral the way you want it.
