Funeral Goods & Services

We realize that most people don't have much experience making funeral or cremation arrangements for a loved one;
and may not know what merchandise and services are available or might be required. 

Whether you need our service right away for a loved one who has just passed, or you're pre-planning your own services in advance,
we encourage you to learn about your options. 

Below are some of the goods and services that we provide as they are required to be listed in our general price list, pursuant to FTC Funeral Service Trade Regulation Rule.  Call or visit for information specific to your wishes as well as pricing, and the benefits of using our family owned funeral home. 

The goods and services shown below are some of those we can provide to our customers.  You may choose only the items you desire.  However, any funeral 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 funeral goods and services you selected.
