Burial Service Scenario

The scenario presented below is provided to help you understand the estimated total costs for a typical casketed burial service.

The expenses highlighted in blue are from our General Price List. The non-funeral home expenses highlighted in black are common to most services we arrange. These expenses are often referred to as "cash advance" or "outside" expenses. The price of these services are not determined by the funeral home, thus the funeral home has no control over the price.


Below is an example of the costs typically associated with a casketed burial service. Please keep in mind there are other options available which the family can choose and thus would modify this example. Please contact us to discuss this matter further.
