Many people don’t realize that prices can vary greatly between funeral homes. Over just the last three years many family-run funeral homes (and local cemeteries) have been taken-over by big global corporations. These big corporate funeral homes often keep the original owner’s family name on the door so they don't scare away their old customers. Unfortunately, these corporations often raise prices by 30% to 50%.
Don't just the pick the same old funeral home
This is why you should NOT automatically use the same funeral home you have used in the past UNTIL you check to see if they have SINCE become part of one of the big funeral corporations – as so many have!
