When it comes to choosing a funeral home and making funeral arrangements, there is a multitude of things one must consider before making his/her choice, none bigger than price! Although price should not be the lone deciding factor it should play a major role, because the funeral is a major expense. And according to the 2010 funeral price survey by the National Funeral Directors Association, the average funeral cost for an adult funeral is $7,775.00. This is based on the most commonly selected items for a traditional funeral including a casket and vault. However, it does not include cemetery costs. A grave space, a grave marker, and opening/closing the grave can easily cost another $1,500 to $3,000.
At Graves Funeral Home we believe the funeral should be meaningful and encompass all the wishes of the family and deceased without putting an undue financial burden on the family. This is why we offer affordable pricing to fit any budget. We have complete traditional funeral packages for thousands less than the national average! Our packages include everything you will need from our Funeral Home; our services, casket, and vault if you need one, family cars, and extras such as free memorial DVDís, free memorial tribute blankets and free food to your home prior to the service.
