Giving the grieving a break: Online disclosure of funeral costs in South Bay helps avoid gouging - The Daily Breeze

Monday, March 27, 2017

South Bay and Harbor Area do not have general price lists on their websites. Green Hills Mortuary in Rancho Palos Verdes, Exquisite Family Mortuary in Inglewood, Funeraria Del Angel in Wilmington and Halverson, Stone & Myers Mortuary in Torrance each list their services, but advise prospective customers to call and request a general price list.Green Hills’ list of services warns consumers that advertised prices at other funeral homes might be dishonest.“Many providers advertise low prices then add hidden fees. Our professional funeral directors will clearly let you know what the total price will be for our excellent services and merchandise,” the mortuary states.Funeraria Del Angel and Halverson, Stone & Myers are part of a chain, Service Corp. International, which mostly operates under the brand “Dignity Memorial,” and has a uniform policy not to post prices.Houston-based SCI, with $3?billion in revenue last year, owns 470 cemeteries and 1,500 funeral homes nationwide, including 70 in Southern California. It has acquired rival chains and independents at a rapid pace.SCI charges far more than most independent funeral homes for cremations and burials, according to the consumer groups’ report, which compared prices across several categories.Among the homes surveyed, Dignity Memorial outlets charged a median price of $2,700 for a simple cremation, 72 percent more than the independents.And Dignity Memorial homes charged a median of $2,155 for a simple burial, 50 percent more than the independent businesses.

It does not cover the cost of casket, embalming, or the plot.)“Although media reports on SCI have often described the company as the ‘Wal-Mart’ of funeral service, the comparison does not hold,” the report asserted. “Unlike Wal-Mart, SCI’s economies of scale don’t translate into cost savings for consumers.”A company statement responding to the report read, “We strongly believe having a personal conversation to understand how families envision honoring their loved ones goes far beyond simply using an online resource and is the best way to help families during a very difficult time.“Our Dignity Memorial providers con...
