Standard Embalming  
Embalming
(including use of preparation room and sanitary care).
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 require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial. If you choose an embalming performed, the decedent may be embalmed at a location other than this registered mortuary.
(No human remains may remain unburied or uncremated in New Jersey for more than 48 hours unless embalmed or refrigerated.) N.J.A.C.8..9-1.1

Cash Disbursements

Additional Expenses   Arranging the funeral ceremony and committal often requires the funeral home to pay others on your behalf. We do not charge for this service. An example of the people who may expect payment in advance include the cemetery, church/synagogue or clergy. Often the timing of the funeral arrangements (hour, date, or holidays) may make it necessary for us to estimate what advances you want us to make on your behalf.   This does not include prices for certain items that you may ask us to buy for you, such as cemetery or crematory service, flowers, and newspaper notices. The prices for those items will be shown on your bill or the statement describing the funeral goods and services you selected.   For example: 

  • Pallbearers
  • Hairdresser's fee
