All inclusive look at funeral affairs

A Consumer’s Window to the American Funeral and Related Affairs is an all inclusive look at funeral affairs.

It’s a road map designed to create consumer wisdom within those matters.  Like no other, it does that by simply “telling it like it is” in easy to read, cross reference, dictionary form.  All you need do is locate the topic of concern in the index and follow the related articles.

A Consumer’s Window is NOT another of the many books that propose to explain the psychology surrounding death and dying.  It takes a DIFFERENT course by addressing the many matters of funerals and related affairs instead.

With those concerns and in the interest of the consumer, A  Consumer’s Window faithfully discusses today’s typical funeral:

  • Practices
  • Activites
  • Pricing

It examines:

  • Pay-in-advance funerals
  • Alternatives to the traditional funeral
  • The very important matter of related affairs

Cares and Concerns

Of all the cares and concerns each of us must face, most will agree, the prospect and reality of death is given the least attention.

Most will agree also that the consumer would be benefitted by a more totally organized picture of the business of funerals and related affairs.

Did you know that next to a house and automobile, we would probably find that the cost of a traditional funeral would rank among our 3rd largest investments?

In 2012 it was estimated that the average cost of a traditional funeral, includiing the casket and outer burial container, was in excess of $7500; that figure did not include cemetery expenses.

It is with those concerns that I have written A Consumer’s Window to the American Funeral and Related Affairs.
