The following is a list of choices which represent the cost of our services. They may or may not include the casket or container required for visitation or viewing, burial, entombment or cremation.
You are in no way limited to these service options. You may itemize services in order to select only those which are right for you.
Our charge for a direct cremation (without a service or ceremony) includes: basic professional services of funeral director and staff for obtaining and filing official documents; sanitary care of unembalmed remains; removal of the deceased from the place of death to the mortuary (within a 50-mile radius); transportation of the deceased to the local crematory; cremation process charge; and refrigeration for the first 48 hours.
This service does NOT include: cash advance items; other preparations of the remains; funeral service; handling charge of cremated remains (i.e. registered mail charges); cremation container; memorial register, memorial folders/prayer cards or acknowledgement cards; embalming; viewing or use of the facilities for viewing; body bag (if needed); or additional days of refrigeration.
If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternative container. Alternative containers encase the deceased and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials (with or without an outside covering). The containers we provide are fiberboard.
