The goods and services listed 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 service and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reasons in writing on the statement we provide describing the funeral goods and services you selected.
Our charge includes services of funeral director and staff to provide 24-hour availability; necessary arrangements with responsible party; recording vital statistics; securing permits, filing and obtaining death certificates and other forms; preparation of obituary; sheltering of remains; coordination of service plans with parties involved in the final disposition of the deceased. 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.)
Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement, such as direct cremation or immediate burial, that does not require you to pay for it.
*Rules and Regulations of the Pennsylvania State Board of Funeral Directors, Section 13.201, 6-i states:
