Understanding Funeral Pricing

How Much Does a Funeral Cost?

That’s a question we help answer every day. You might be surprised to learn that you are in control of costs more than we are. At Hugeback-Johnson Funeral Home & Crematory we want every family to make informed decisions, so we are committed to providing you with accurate pricing. How much a funeral costs depends on personal choices you make. Understanding your choices is how to save money and get the best value.

What You Need to Know

Many funeral service providers advertise and quote incomplete low prices and then disclose the full cost later. Hugeback-Johnson Funeral Home & Crematory does not. Our helpful and friendly staff are here to discuss your questions and concerns regarding pricing. Every service provider is required to have and provide a general price list. It is exactly what it sounds like. General. It is an itemized list of every fee a funeral home has.

What to Watch For

Providers that quote prices without explaining them, or all inclusive packages may not be giving you an accurate send of cost. Prices with no explanation of what is included, may not include everything you want or need. All inclusive packages may include items and services you do not want or need.

Getting the Best Price for Your Family

Funeral pricing and value per dollar spent is defined by you, not by a funeral home. To get the best pricing and the best value, it is important to understand your choices and to work with a professional who will help you understand where you can control what a funeral or cremation costs. The price you pay, and your personal satisfaction with it is driven by four distinct factors. Three of these factors are truly in your control.

Here are the four factors:

Other considerations:

Does the provider offer prices in writing?
Is the funeral home familiar with your faith and cultural traditions?
How does the provider handle special requests?
Does the company operate its own crematory, or do they outsource this process?
