When you consider adding up the costs of a funeral establishment’s services, cemetery services, monuments and catering, it can certainly end up being a considerable amount of money. We understand that financially, funerals can add additional strain to an already difficult time. At Essentials, the fees in our price list allow us to cover the costs of our day to day operations while keeping the financial impact as minimal as possible for the family. The total cost will depend on the choices the family makes when it comes to services, merchandise and third party disbursements such as obituaries, catering, etc.
