The goods or services shown below are 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 service 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.
Services of Funeral Director and Staff - $2495.00
Our fee for the funeral director and staff includes, but not limited to, staff to respond to the initial request for service; arrangement conference with family and/or responsible party; arrangement of funeral; preparation and filing of necessary authorizations and permits; recording vital statistics; preparation and placement of obituary notices; staff assistance prior to, during, and following the funeral; including coordination with those providing other portions of the funeral, such as, clergy, cemetery, crematory, and others. Also included in this charge are overhead expenses relative to our facility such as insurance, taxes, maintenance and utility expenses, secretarial and administrative cost, and equipment and inventory cost. This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements you select. (This fee is already included in our charges for direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding or receiving remains.)
Embalming - $695.00
Embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with a viewing.

Many people who are interested in cremation as a method of final disposition are unfamiliar with service options available to them when choosing cremation. A family may select to have the deceased embalmed and placed in a cremation casket, which would allow for a traditional visitation and funeral service with the body present.
Following the service, the deceased is cremated, and the cremains are handled as the family directs. This option would not require cemetery property since the cremains could be either retained or scattered if desired.
Alternatively, you may select a direct cremation in which the deceased is transported directly to the crematory upon completion of necessary authorizations and the death certificate. A direct cremation does not provide for visitation or any funeral ceremony. However, families often wish to have a memorial service tribute for the deceased. We can help you arrange and coordinate a service that provides comfort during this difficult time. That service is frequently held in our chapel but may also be conducted at other locations. If you are interested in this type of service, we will be glad to offer suggestions to help the service be more meaningful to you.
Basic Cremation - $2595.00
This charge includes removal (within 50 miles of our facility), refrigeration, necessary services of funeral director and staff, transportation to the crematory, cremation fees, authorizations and a standard alternative container. It does not include embalming, viewing or visitation, nor any rites or ceremonies. If documentation has to be filed other than Franklin County, there will be additional charges for transport, and securing and filing of necessary legal documentation required for cremation. If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternate container. Alternate containers encase the body and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials (with or without an outside covering). The containers we provide are fiberboard and wood cremation trays with vinyl body cases.
