Plan a Funeral : General Price List

These prices are effective as of January 1, 2018 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 $970.00
Our fee for the basic services of funeral director and staff includes, but is not limited to, the following: staff to respond to initial request for service; arrangement conference with family or responsible party; consultation with family and clergy; arrangement of funeral; preparation and filing of necessary notices, authorizations and consents; coordination with this providing other portions of the funeral. Also included in this charge are overhead expenses relative to our facility such as insurance, maintenance and utility expenses, secretarial and administrative costs, and equipment and inventory expenses. This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements you select. (This fee is already included in our charge for direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding or receiving remains.)

Embalming $750.00
Except in certain special cases (see requirements of Michigan law set out below), embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing or visitation. Most common carriers also require embalming. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial. Michigan law requires embalming when death was caused by certain infectious diseases or, with very limited exceptions, when the body is not taken to its final destination (such as a cemetery or crematory) within 48 hours of the time of death.
