Also included is a proportionate charge for (insurance, maintenance, utility expenses, secretarial and administrative costs, equipment and inventory costs) overhead. "This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangement you select." A portion of this fee has been included in our charges for direct cremation, immediate burial, forwarding and receiving of remains.
Transfer of Remains to Funeral Home
Except in certain special cases, law does not require embalming. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing.
