These prices are effective as of July 2, 2014

They are subject to change without notice.

 

The goods and services shown 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 the 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.

MERCHANDISE

We offer many different styles and prices of caskets and alternative containers from which to select.  Since many caskets that are similar in appearance may differ greatly in quality and construction, we offer the following information in order to assist you in making a decision.

Protective       These caskets are designed by the manufacturer to resist the entrance of air, water and other outside elements.  They may be constructed of varying gauges of steel, copper, or bronze.

Non-Protective           These caskets are not designed by the manufacturer to resist the entrance of air, water or other outside elements.  They may be constructed of metal, hardwood or wood products covered with fabric.

Disclaimer of Warranty        The only warranty of the casket or any merchandise sold in connection with this service is the express written warranty, if any, granted by the manufacturer.

THIS FUNERAL HOME MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING AN IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND AN IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO THE CASKET AND/OR OUTER BURIAL CONTAINER.

 

Your funeral director will be happy

to explain our payment policy to you.

In most areas of the country, state or local law does not require that you buy a container to surround the casket in the grave.  However, many cemeteries require that you have such a container so that the grave will not sink in.  Either a grave liner or a burial vault will satisfy these requirements.

Your funeral director will be happy to discuss Memorial merchandise and keepsakes with you.
