Charges for Services Selected
Pre-Arrangements Available Lock in Tomorrow's Service at Today's Price
Below is the Price List for our services. We keep our prices low by charging only for those services that are used. For example, many places will charge you a certain fee for services no matter when the death may occur and the services are used. We however do not charge you the fee unless the charge is incurred. For example, should a death happen at night in a hospital with storage capabilities and we are not requested to take the remains into our care until the next morning the fee is $595.00 for our services. But should the death occur at say a nursing home or residence and require immediate removal of the remains is requested, there is an extra charge to cover the cost personnel after hours. This way, you are only paying for the services you request. we are not charging everyone for services they don't need.
