The goods and services shown below are those that we can provide to our customers.  You may choose only those items you desire.  However, any funeral arrangements that you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead.  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 goods and services you selected.


Basic Services of Funeral Director, Staff and Overhead:                                                               $930

Our services include:  conducting the arrangement conference; planning the funeral; consulting with family and clergy; shelter of remains; preparing and filing of necessary notices; obtaining

necessary authorizations and permits; coordinating with the cemetery, crematory, or other third

This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements you select.  (This fee is already included in our charges for direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding and receiving remains.)


Embalming                                                                                                                                       $475

Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law.  Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing.  If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.  According to 37.116.103 Administrative Rules of Montana, a body “en route more than 8 hours, or if the termination of common carrier transport occurs more than 36 hours after the time of death, the body must be embalmed or refrigerated at 35 degrees F or colder,” or “when by being transported by a private conveyor and the body will not reach its destination within 48 hours after the time of death, must either be embalmed or refrigerated at 35 degrees F or colder.”
