General Price List

For your convenience we have included our general price list for services we provide.

An example on how to use this is to take the Basic service of funeral director and staff, add refrigeration, bathing and handling of the deceased, dressing and casketing of the deceased, equipment and staff for a graveside service, local transfer from place of death to our facility and hearse.  This will show a charge of $2695 for a graveside service without embalming, tahara, or a limousine.   If tahara is selected than the bathing and handling and dressing and casketing charges should not be chosen as this is done by the Chevra, but there is then a charge for the Tahara room that needs to be selected in its place.   If a Synagogue service is desired than the staff and equipment for the service at the Synagogue should be selected instead of the graveside choice.   

Add to the total below the cost of the casket and vault.  These prices can be found under Burial Merchandise.  Additional charges will include sales tax and charges that are not ours such as cemetery, newspaper notices, clergy honorarium and death certificates.  If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment please feel free to contact us.
