A full "General Price List" is available at the office.
The following prices are to give a basic idea of what our Funeral Service costs. Most of our clients can expect to pay an average of $1645-$1800 for a local burial, when the death occurs at a local hospital, residence, or nursing home, in Maryland, DC, or Virginia. General burial turnaround time is 24-48 hours, or less on average. Rental caskets are available for local burials in cemeteries that allow for burials without the casket. Caskets to purchase range from $399-$1195. Those are available on the Casket Page.
Overseas shipping is about $6000.00, (more or less) depending on the country and circumstances. This does include airfare for the deceased as well as the shipping container and all necessary documents and procedures to procure the shipment. Turnaround time is about 3 business days on an overseas case.
These estimates are meant to be total cost estimates.

We can usually accommodate a 48-72 hour (business days) in-air departure, going overseas. This is for local deaths, being the simplest of cases. Sometimes "extra work" is required. Extra work requires extra time. There are cases where the specifics may set us back a day or two. We have no control of when government offices or Embassies will be open or closed, but there are times when we are able to ask Embassies to stay open late, or meet after hours. We do have some connections. Please inquire as to the specifics of your case to get the best understanding.

The Gambia, Ghana, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Lione, Nigeria, Benin can be close to $7,000, (including airfare for the deceased) depending, but routing airfare with multiple stops through different countries other than France can help the cost.
