Cremation Packages

All of our cremation package plans include: basic services of licensed professional and staff, transfer of remains anywhere in our service area, medical examiner fee, use of refrigeration, necessary authorizations, cremation container and crematory fee. If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternative container. Alternative containers encase the body and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials (with or without an outside covering). The container we provide is a sturdy double walled corrugated cardboard container which is already included in our direct cremation charge. If the consumer brings in their own container subtract $15 from the member and non-member prices below.

Direct Cremation Package
This is our simplest offering and is designed for those who "just want to be cremated" without any service or ceremony. This basic package includes everything legally required for a direct cremation as mentioned on the previous page. This package does not include an urn.

Credit & Payment Policy

For those who have not prepaid for their services, we have established a uniform credit policy to serve all families fairly and to alleviate misunderstandings. A sound credit policy enables us to contain our costs to all the families we serve. Our general credit policy is that the entire amount of the cremation is due and payable at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, personal and bank checks, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) as forms of payment. We regret that we are unable to accept settlement of estates through attorneys or probate court as a means of financial arrangements, nor are we able to process life insurance policies. All unpaid balances after sixty days (60) from the date of service accrue a finance charge of 1% per month (12% per year)

The General Price List does not include prices for certain items you may ask us to buy for you such as cemetery charges, newspaper notices, clergy/church fees and fees of other funeral homes. The prices for those items will be shown on the statement describing the cremation goods and services you selected.
