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.
