Your Funeral Guy: Traditional Funeral cost

20 Jul

The average cost of a traditional funeral service presently is $6,000 to $7,000.This includes funeral home viewing, embalming, a hearse or funeral coach, paperwork, and a casket.

Flowers, obituary notices in newspapers, gravestones and cemetery sites add more to money to the event. In days gone by, Sailors used to wear a golden earing so as to have away to pay for a proper burial. I am not suggesting one go out and purchase a golden earring.

Sometimes Funeral cost can be covered with a little help from friends or relatives. This article shows how funeral cost can be covered by helpful friends.
