Disinterment: Our minimum professional fee is $1,400.00. This includes the necessary family conferences, coordinating with the cemeteries, grave service companies, arranging for transportation and obtaining the necessary permits and authorizations. 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.
Infant Burial Services: The death of an infant is often sudden and extremely traumatic to a young family. 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.
Infant Cremation Services: Basic cremation services for an infant are available for $620.00.
Youth Services (3 months to 12 years): Youth and children´s funeral/cremation services also present difficult and emotional funeral arrangements. Gipson Pendergrass People’s Mortuary will discount all services from the General Price List by 25% in order to assist a young family. Youth casket and outer burial container prices are available at the mortuary.
