How to Save on a Funeral

NEVER mention us until after the bill is written.
Some funeral homes have two price lists – which is illegal. If they even think you may provide your own casket they may give you the price list with the higher fees to offset their expected loss. You should negotiate pricing before you tell them you will supply your own casket.
