General Price List


These prices are effective as of April 10, 2015 and are subject to change without notice.

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

Basic Services of the Funeral Director and Staff $1,695.00

The charge for our services will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements which you select. However, this charge will not be added to the cost for direct cremation, direct burial, forwarding remains or receiving remains because this service is included in those charges.

Basic arrangements include services of the funeral director, other staff, equipment and facilities to respond to the initial request for services, the arrangement conference, securing necessary authorizations and coordination of service plans with parties involved in the final disposition of the deceased

Embalming $595.00

In New York State, embalming is not required by law.
