The decision to place the care of your loved one with a funeral home is an important one and usually goes beyond selecting the lowest price. Some of the things you should consider when choosing a funeral home:
If you have any questions about information in our GPL or how the items combine, please contact us at (847) 253-0168 or email@example.com with any questions.
While we tailor every remembrance to meet every family’s unique needs, there are typical combinations of goods and services. To make selection easier and benefit those families who take advantage of the services, facilities and merchandise Glueckert Funeral Home, Ltd. has to offer, we have a number of discounted packages available to make the decision process more understandable and easier to compare.
The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any funeral arrangements 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.
Includes, but is not limited to, services of director and staff to respond to the initial request for service, conference with a funeral director to determine services required, coordination of the plans involved in the final disposition of the deceased, recording vital statistics, securing permits and authorizations, shelter of remains for up to two days, filing and obtaining death certificates and preparation of other forms and claims. This also includes a charge used to meet overhead expenses such as licensing, legal and accounting fees, OSHA and environmental compliance, insurance, building and utility expenses, grounds maintenance, taxes, equipment, record keeping and other costs and expenses. 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 or receiving of remains.)
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. It is the policy of our funeral home to require embalming when public viewing is requested.
