What We Do


As stated before, we take our motto "Service and caring is our profession" very seriously. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to guide families of all faiths through their necessary arrangements.  When a death occurs out-of-state or out-of-country, we have the  experience needed to handle all of the details for bringing your loved one home.  Our funeral home is handicapped accessible with a spacious foyer, two visitation chapels, a dining area and a comfortable arrangement office. At Crawford-Osthus Funeral Chapel, we give you value, choice and options. We offer Wilbert vaults and a complete line of metal and wood caskets as well as urns in many styles and compositions. We welcome questions about our prices and have discount packages available. 

General Price List 

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 services.) If legal or other requirements mean you must buy items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain in writing on the statement we provide describing the funeral goods and services you selected. This list does not include prices for certain items that you may ask us to buy for your convenience but may be authorized for payment through the funeral home at no additional service charge, such as cemetery or cremation fees, flowers, newspaper notices, music, clergy, certified copies of death certificate, transportation, long distance calls, etc. 

Professional Services

Initial Embalming 

Except in special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement which does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.
