COST CONSIDERATIONS

Published: December 9, 2018

Funeral pre-arrangement plans that include pre-payment enable consumers to pay in advance for options such as the coffin, embalming, chapel, dressing/casketing, floral arrangements, stationery, staff services, and the basic service fee, as well as for cemetery expenses such as the grave, headstone, opening and closing, outer burial container, and other fees. A guaranteed plan locks in the price of such goods and services at the time they are purchased. While a non-guaranteed plan may not lock in prices, it will enable any accumulated funds to accrue interest, which will likely help mitigate final costs. In either case, pre-payment funds are held by a third party, either in a trust or in a life insurance policy. 

Thousands of people choose to plan their funeral and burial expenses and in doing so, they recognize receive great emotional relief for themselves and their loved ones. Prepaying your funeral will allow you to make your own funeral plans, but, more importantly, will spare surviving relatives and loved ones from the emotional burden of having to make decisions at a time of great stress and grief. If you would like to learn more about preplanning, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960. Please tour our facility at 48 Common Street, where we have been serving our community with care for more than 50 years.

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

Published: December 2, 2018

If you have ever wondered where the term “six feet under” came from, its origination can be traced to the Great Plague of London in 1665, when 20 percent of the city’s population succumbed to the Bubonic plague. In the belief that burying the dead a safe distance underground could help stop the spread of disease, The Lord Mayor of London mandated that all graves be dug a minimum of six feet deep. However, because dead bodies were never found to spread the plague to the living, the law was eventually overturned in England and its colonies. It was later reinstated in order to discourage grave robbing. Burial laws now vary from state to state. 

The earliest human burial dates back 100,000 years making it one of the longest-lived and most widespread of traditions. We have the deepest respect for this traditional practice. If you are interested in learning more about the burial services we offer, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960. We invite you to tour our home at 48 Common Street, where we have been serving our community with compassion for more than 50 years.
