What does this term mean? Why does the Funeral Home advance cash? What are cash advances??
The term- Cash Advance means that we will forward money to different entities for the performance of the funeral in a timely manner. These costs are associated with the funeral service not necessarily the Funeral Home.
The Funeral Home advances cash to various government agencies/businesses/organizations. This relieves the family from having to write multiple checks for multiple services in a short period of time. We do this as a convenience for our families that we serve. You do not have to have any portion of the cash advances added to your bill. You may pick and choose which fees you would like us to assist you with.
Some examples of when we advance cash to others include:
The Health Department for Death Certificates and burial permits, the clergy/officiant/funeral celebrant, the church or temple, musicians, hairdresser, newspaper notices, cemetery lots, cemetery opening and closing of graves, cemetery burial fees, cemetery overtime fees, cemetery locator fees, monument engraving, monument foundation fees, monument setting fees, flowers, vault overtime fees, crematory fees, honor guards, clothing, motorcycle escorts, airlines, other funeral homes, restaurants, reception halls, hotels, and car rental agencies. We will gladly assist you with virtually anything to do with the funeral so that this Legacy of Life Remembrance Service will be just perfect for you and your family,
