Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: Can an Individual (s) who already has made Pre-Need arrangements at another funeral home transfer those arrangements to Central Funeral Home?
ANSWER: ABSOLUTELY YES! The transfer process is very simple. If you are possibly interested in exploring this option, simply come by our office and we will assist you.
QUESTION: Are Cemetery Monuments purchased from funeral homes more expensive than from the "buy direct, no middle man" monument sellers?
ANSWER: NOT necessarily. Many "direct sellers" must pay for overhead add-ons such as land space, office space, extensive and costly advertising, as well as, sales personnel labor costs in addition to the wholesale cost of the monuments. Obviously, "direct sellers" must make enough profit above their operating expenses. Our funeral home has already absorbed these overhead expenses to the operation of the funeral home and therefore we can pass these savings on to you.
