Funeral Costs Explained



At Tanzyus-Logan, we believe in being open and honest about all divisions of service.

Funeral costs are dependent on many factors. The following items will be a helpful list when you are comparing like items for your funeral needs:


Professional Fees of Directors & Staff  and Location of Service and the type of Service:

  • Full Traditional Service with Burial or Cremation to follow
  • A Contemporary Gathering
  • A Graveside Service
  • A Memorial Ceremony…
  • A Simple Cremation
  • or something Beyond the Ordinary like “Remembering the Ride” Motorcycle-drawn HearseRR_drawingplain1


The type of Merchandise wanted:

  • Casket or Urn and Burial Vault or Urn Vault
  • A Register Book
  • Acknowledgement Cards to say your thank yous
  • Scrapbook styled Photo Service Folders
  • Obituary Laminated Bookmarks
  • Keepsakes to hold and cherish, like jewelry and memory boxes


The choice of a Final Resting Place:

  • Cemetery property and fees with Permanent Memorials like Monuments or Markers
  • or other Beyond the Ordinary opportunities such as Dove and Butterfly Releases
  • “Remembering the Ride” Motorcycle-drawn Hearse, processional only


Other Cash needs can include:

  • Honorariums – to Clergy, vocalist(s) musicians, and sound tech
  • A Hairdresser
  • Death Certificates
  • Newspaper notices
  • Floral Tributes
  • Final date work for monuments and markers
  • and any Closing Estate Work


Because we let you decide what is best for your family and budget, it would be impossible for us to give an exact quote by phone or email, without first getting a better idea of your unique situation and needs.  It is for this reason that we suggest a meeting with one of our caring funeral directors or knowledgeable and licensed pre-need service staff.  Working with you at your convenience, with no added pressure or expected obligation,  at our offices or comfortably within your own home. That initial meeting will help you define what you have in mind AND supply you with a real figure that accurately reflects the true cost to you.  Since we are a funeral service company and not a traditional funeral home, our overhead charges are less overall and  we are able to pass on substantial savings to the families we serve.

Compare the Service.  Compare the Savings.
