The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any funeral 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 funeral goods and services you selected.
TRANSFER OF DECEDENT FROM PLACE OF DEATH $500.00
Upon notification from the duly authorized person, we will deploy a licensed funeral director and staff necessary to retrieve the decedent from the place of death (home, nursing facility, hospital, hospice inpatient facility or other institution). The decedent will be transported in a properly licensed and insured vehicle, required for safe and dignified carriage.
BASIC SERVICES OF FUNERAL DIRECTOR & STAFF $800.00
This fee is to gather vital statistic information, record the death with the State of Illinois and County of Death and any Local requirements to secure the proper permission and permits needed to bury, entomb, cremate or send to another state or country. This task is governed by Illinois state statute requiring a properly licensed funeral director to contract with the legally authorized family member or authorized agent; gather and process the information and obtain the proper permits for the legal disposition of the decedent, coordinate final disposition with cemetery, crematory or other entity. 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 charges for direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding or receiving remains.)
COORDINATION OF SERVICE DETAILS, VIEWING,
MEMORIAL OR OTHER GATHERINGS $150.00
A licensed funeral director may be required to coordinate with family or authorized agents in handling the complexity of organization in arranging, scheduling of viewing, funeral services and memorial services including with third parties. This also includes assistance with the preparation and submission of obituary notices and hosting the obituary information on our website.
