Our goal is to provide you as much information as possible regarding the cost of the services we provide. The greatest factors determining cost are the time spent by us and the use of our facilities. We are available to serve you 24 hours a day, every day. Our costs include wages, taxes, maintenance, supplies, advertising, utilities, insurance, upkeep and operation of a preparation room, licenses and continuing education requirements, inventory, conference with family, filing of paperwork, obituaries, coordinating the funeral, visitation, transporting equipment to place of service, care and handling of flowers, operation of hearse and service vehicle, and much more.

When comparing prices with other funeral homes, you must be careful to compare like goods and services and the total price. Some funeral homes give a perception of low cost by giving a basic service charge, only to add on other expenses for services families desire and should expect with funeral service. Some will under price their total service expense and then over price merchandise. It is important to remember that all funeral homes do not provide the same quality of service.  

Merchandise must be considered on equal levels in comparison. Different manufacturers, thickness and type of metal used, workmanship and quality of wood used, type and strength of burial vaults must be considered when comparing cost.

Providing you excellent service at a fair price is what sets us apart.
