How are prices itemized for consumers who are selecting services and merchandise?
Your funeral director will present a General Price List which reflects his services including at least these categories: Professional services, removal of remains to the funeral home, preparation, shelter and care of the deceased, use of facilities for visitation, use of facilities for the funeral service, transportation and other services.
In addition, you may choose a casket, vault or other desired funeral merchandise from a merchandise display room or from photos or lists of such caskets, vaults and clothing. Or, if you prefer, your funeral director may have one or more complete services, priced as a unit, for your convenience.
