The cost of the funeral is a matter of personal choice which must be determined by each family. Tastes and preferences vary as do financial circumstances. Generally, cost depends upon the extent of the services provided by the funeral home and the options and merchandise selected by the family.

A price list itemizing costs and merchandise is available from all funeral homes upon request. Be sure you fully understand what merchandise, services and supplies are included before signing any contract.

At Wall-Custance, we welcome and encourage people to make enquiries regarding funeral services and costs prior to the time of need. It is usually easier to discuss the type of services and costs in person, so that both parties can have a clear understanding of what is available, what would best suit their needs, and the costs that would be incurred.
