North Americans spend billions on funerals every year, but the funeral or funeral services don't have to be high-priced. A funeral can be a simple internment or a complicated affair with music, speakers, customized caskets and refreshments for mourners. Family, spiritual or personal preferences are important, but cost and convenience should be considered as well.
"Many families are forced to make calls about funerals under stress," announced Michelle L. Corey, BBB President and General Manager. "By teaching themselves about the process and taking time to pose questions and compare costs, families can avoid overspending. They're more certain to get the sort of service they desire, too."
The Federal Trade Commission's Funeral Rule gives consumers several rights, including the inherent right to receive written price lists, illustrations of cemetery or legal wants and the choice of employing a container apart from a box for cremation. Some graveyards have their own requirements, which must be explained totally before making a purchase.Orange County Cremation Company
