Basic Services Fee of $1,750

This fee is already included in our charges for packages, including direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding or receiving remains.

The basic services fee includes conducting the arrangements conference; planning the funeral; consulting with family and/or clergy; shelter of the body; preparing and filing necessary notices; obtaining necessary authorizations and permits; coordinating with the cemetery, crematory, or other third parties as necessary. This fee for our basic services, insurance and overhead will be added to the total cost of the itemized funeral arrangements you select. Those of us at The Natural Funeral know death is difficult. Like you, we’ve had deaths in the family, and we know most people don’t feel up to making big decisions when they’re grieving. We’ve tried to make this price list as easy to understand as possible. If you have questions, ask them — that’s what we’re here for. Just because we haven’t listed a particular option doesn’t mean we can’t accommodate you. We’ll be happy to sit down with you and plan a funeral service that’s appropriate to your needs.

The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any funeral arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement we provide describing the funeral goods and services you selected.

In Colorado, embalming is not required by law. The Natural Funeral specializes in natural death care. We are able to work with families using Medicaid or Veterans’ benefits.
