What Will It Cost ?

The amount you pay depends entirely on your intended funeral arrangements. This is dictated by a number of factors.

Firstly, Your Funeral Director charges for Professional Services. This is given in the form of an itemised estimate. It is what your funeral director gets paid for the work they carry out. This can vary greatly from a very simple service with very little funeral director involvement to an elaborate funeral service with all the trimmings. You would need to discuss this with your funeral director and tailor the services you require.

Secondly, the type of casket. Geards Funeral Home has quite possibly the largest casket showroom in the North, with 18 different styles of casket on show. The casket prices can vary from a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars. There is generally a casket suitable to meet everyone’s needs and again the choice becomes yours. Be aware that the casket chosen will have a direct bearing on the overall cost of the funeral.

Thirdly, there are the Disbursements. Now this is the area that is always difficult to define. In this world of user pays, what you order is what you will pay for! Disbursements are items such as, flowers, newspaper notices, cemetery fees and crematorium fees, doctors medical and cremation certificate fees, printed service sheets, memorial register, thank you cards, video service, catering, hall hireage, just about anything you can think of can be arranged but will come with a cost!

As you can see the funeral account is actually three accounts in one. Geards Funeral Home can help you tailor a funeral to suit your budget. To find out more, please fill out the form on our contact page.
