Survey of Triad Funeral Prices
Commission (FTC) has established a
Funeral Rule which, among other things,
requires funeral providers to make
available a written general price list of
their services and to give a copy of the
list to anyone who visits the business and
requests one. A useful resource prepared
by the FTC is a pamphlet entitled Complying
With The Funeral Rule. Anyone
planning a funeral is strongly encouraged
to obtain general price lists from
multiple providers and compare prices.
Funeral Consumers alliance has provided
some information on how
to read a general price list.
service to our members, our chapter has
collected general price lists from all the
funeral service providers in our area. We
have tabulated the prices in an
easy-to-compare format and also created a
rating as to how well each provider meets
the requirements of the Funeral Rule.
