There will be an additional charge for the direction and supervision of each service requested or required.

Embalming and Professional Care
Embalming is a chemical process which provides temporary preservation of the body and eliminates certain health hazards. A person licensed by this state must complete this procedure. Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.

A green funeral incorporates environmentally-friendly options in order to meet the needs of a family requesting a green service. A green funeral may include any or all of the following: a gathering in a natural setting, use of only recycled paper products, locally-grown organic flowers, carpooling, no embalming or embalming with formaldehyde-free products, the use of sustainable biodegradable clothing, shroud or casket, and natural or green burial. In natural burial, the body is buried without the use of formaldehyde-based embalming in a natural setting. Any shroud, clothing or casket that is used must be biodegradable, nontoxic, and of sustainable material. Traditional standing headstones are not permitted. Instead, flat rocks, plants or trees may serve as grave markers.

Currently there is not a green cemetery in Texas. Some local cemeteries are developing designated areas for green burial that will have different burial requirements from other areas. Also, an increasing number of environmentally friendly funeral products, including caskets and urns, are becoming available. At Gipson Pendergrass People’s Mortuary we offer green burial services and would be honored to talk with you about the ever-increasing options.

All grave service charges and transportation will be handled as a cash advance (you will be charged only what we are charged). We reserve the right to make additional charges for the professional services which require more of our time.

Unembalmed Bodies: Texas Statutes provide that all bodies not disposed of within 24 hours after death must be embalmed or refrigerated. If you do not want embalming, we can arrange for refrigeration. You may have the funeral service with an unembalmed body present, but under no circumstances will we allow public viewing of an unembalmed body. The immediate family only will be allowed to view an unembalmed body.

In order to alleviate any financial obligations for funeral expenses Gipson Pendergrass People’s Mortuary will provide at no charge the following services: basic professional services, local removal and transportation to a local cemetery, and graveside service. The family will need to purchase an infant casket (prices available at mortuary) and secure all cash advance payments.
