Plan a Funeral : General Price List

These prices are effective as of October 1, 2013 and are subject to change without notice.

The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement we provide describing the goods and services you selected.


Basic Services of the Funeral Director and Staff $2,685.00
Our basic service charge includes: 24 hour availability; funeral counseling; preparation and placement of obituary; coordination with those providing portions of the funeral such as cemetery, crematory, vault companies, funeral participants and others as needed; arranging and directing visitation and ceremony; recording vital statistics; securing permits; filing and obtaining death certificates and other forms and claims; contacting Social Security, the Veterans Administration and other government agencies; handling of flowers; as well as care for the family following the funeral. Also included in this charge are overhead expenses relative to our facilities such as professional licensing, legal and accounting fees, insurance, building and utility expenses, parking lot and grounds, maintenance, taxes, equipment, furnishings, inventory costs, recordkeeping, and secretarial and administrative expenses. This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral goods and services you select. (This fee is included in our packages.)

When a casket is purchased from Hultgren Funeral Home our service price is lowered in most cases by close to $1000. See our funeral packages.

Embalming $450.00
Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing.
