At Drake’s we present pricing clearly and completely. Unlike other funeral homes, it’s front and centre on our website (see the PRICES menu tab).
If you’re comparing our prices with other funeral homes, please note that our price includes a wood (not cardboard) cremation container — the container that the body goes into for cremation. After cremation we provide, at no charge, a beautiful wood urn for the ashes — not a cardboard box. I’m holding one of the urns in the photo on the HOME page. Our POLICY: never place your loved one’s body into a cardboard box for cremation, and never release your loved one’s ashes in a cardboard box. Why? Because it’s the last thing on Earth being done for your loved one, and they deserve dignity.
Please click on this link to view our entire price and service booklet. Page 4 and 5 show our prices for cremation, celebration of life and other services. Page 6 shows the information we are going to need to produce a death certificate and to register a death.
Please note: at Drake’s we do not bargain or negotiate prices. Our standards are high and our prices are low. No one gets a “special deal.” We have a PRICE/VALUE GUARANTEE, which means that if another funeral offers a lower price, we’ll match it if you think we didn’t more than exceed your expectations.
Drake’s standard is to be clear, honest and helpful. After all, as the owner, my name is on the company sign!
