General Price List

Prices effective as of September 2019 and are subject to change without notice

Federal and State regulations require that this pricelist includes a great deal of information, some of which may not be relevant to the particular arrangements you are attempting to make. Our commitment is to provide you with clear and concise answers to any questions that might arise. If at any point during the arrangement you are unclear about anything, please feel free to stop us and request clarification.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the New York State Department of Health both require that certain disclosures be made by funeral providers on the General Price List. Although these disclosures are similar, they are not exactly the same. This General Price List contains both sets of required disclosures. The disclosures required by the FTC, when different from those required by the Department of Health, are preceded by the letters “FTC”.

However, any funeral arrangements you select will include a charge for our services. 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 services and merchandise you selected.
