We are pleased to provide you with a full disclosure of our professional service charges, merchandise and cash disbursement charges by contacting us either by email or telephone.
To help you understand funeral costs we have prepared an outline of the categories that make up a funeral account. There are basically three sections that make up a funeral account: professional service charges, casket and merchandise and cash disbursements.
To help consumers, legislation states that all funeral homes must provide an itemized general price list of all of their related professional service charges as well as casket and merchandise charges. This list must be available, in person, at the consumers' request without cost or obligation.
We pride ourselves on always being one of the most reasonably priced funeral homes in the area, although many expect our charges to be much higher given our level of professionalism, the quality of our facilities and our ethical standards. Consumers and families finally can learn first hand that there is a difference in the service we provide and they do not need to fall into the trap of traditional loyalty many funeral homes attempt to count on. Today, being good is not good enough. We trust that this service will give you one more reason to give the Lassahn Funeral Home, Inc serious consideration when seeking a funeral home that is pro-actively working towards providing you the highest standards of services and facilities while offering sensible and affordable solutions.
Casket & Merchandise Selections
This section is specific to the casket that a family selects. All of our caskets and merchandise are priced separately - meaning the price you see in our facilities for the casket is for the casket itself with no other items included. We also offer different types of package services - meaning the charge includes specific services and merchandise, most times at a reduced cost in comparison to itemizing your selections. Some of the other types of merchandise you might find in this section of the funeral account are: burial vaults, cremation urns, clothing and upgraded stationary items. As always, you are free to purchase or acquire these items from any other funeral home or other source. Receiving funeral homes cannot charge any handling or administration fees when a casket is purchased elsewhere.
Cash disbursements are just as they imply: we require that all cash disbursement items be paid at the completion of the funeral arrangement conference.
Typical cash disbursements may include:
- Cemetery Charges
- Crematory Charges
- Clergy or Church Honorariums
- Newspaper Notices
- Third Party Transportation Charges
- Certified Copies of the Death Certificate
- Musician or Soloist Honorarium
