HOW IT WORKS
The Society has made arrangements with funeral directors who provide either immediate cremation or preparation for burial at basic cost. Members indicate their choice of funeral director and disposition on a Pre-Arrangement Form. Members carry a wallet-sized card indicating their choices.
Registration with a funeral director simply expresses your wishes and is not a contract. The survivors notify the selected director at the time of death, and the desired services are initiated. One phone call will put your plan into action. The funeral director's fee is payable at the time services are rendered. Members are informed each year of the funeral director's current fees.
TYPE 1: Cremation - The funeral director will call for the remains and place the body in a modest container. The body is cremated according to legal requirements. The funeral director returns the ashes to the survivors if desired. Two death certificates are provided. Newspaper notices are not included in the basic cost.
TYPE 2: Preparation for Simple Burial - The funeral director will call for the remains. The body, which is not embalmed, is placed in a modest container, included in the basic cost. Two death certificates are provided. Burial takes place wherever the family has made arrangements. Cemetery fees and newspaper notices are not included in the basic cost.
