And, please contact us with any questions you have.

 

GENERAL PRICE LIST

These prices are effective November 1, 2017 and are subject to change without notice.


Thank you for choosing Gill Brothers Funeral Chapels, Inc. We are honored to serve your family.

The goods and services shown on these pages are those that we provide. You may choose only those items you want. However, any funeral arrangement will include a charge for our basic services and business expenses. If due to legal or other requirements, you must purchase any items not specifically requested, we will explain the reason in greater detail. This list does not include merchandise or prices for cash advanced items that you may select such as: motorcycle escort, cemetery or crematory fees, flowers, honorariums and newspaper notices. We will show these items on your Funeral Service Order Agreement.

It is important to us that the families we serve are fully informed about our charges. (If you feel any items listed on the next pages need clarification, please bring them to our attention.) This information is provided to insure that all charges are understood and to guard against any misunderstandings about this business transaction.

Payment Policy: Gill Brothers Funeral Chapels, Inc. accepts cash, check, credit card, life insurance assignments and/or pre-paid burial accounts. Cash advanced items are due at the time of funeral arrangements by cash or check only. Half of the remaining balance is due by the time of the funeral and the balance 60 days from the date of death.
Gill Brothers accepts county burial assistance funerals, but services are very limited. If assistance is being applied for, please let the funeral director know at the time of arrangements. We can give you an application to complete, but assistance must be applied for by the family.

In addition, a Licensed professional completes a safe and secure transfer of the remains from the place of death to our facility, completes the arrangement conference, secures the legal paperwork and necessary permits and authorizations, provides sanitary care for temporary secure storage of the deceased, proper I.D., safe and secure delivery of the remains to the crematory; helps coordinate with clergy, newspaper notices, cemetery arrangements, memorial service, and could also help with the flowers and other merchandise selections.
