plan the funeral just the way you want it


We’re here to help you understand how much a funeral costs. We explain everything from our funeral director costs to the cost of the service itself. We make it clear to help you make an informed choice on which funeral will be right for you.

It’s your choice on how grand or simple you’d like the service to be. The type of coffin or transportation you choose, and even the date and time of the service will determine how much you will pay for a funeral.

We believe that no two funerals are the same, each is as unique as the person they’re commemorating.
