Privacy Policy

We recognize the sensitive and private nature of those who call upon us to help them at a time when they may be struggling, confused and particularly uninformed about the requirements and expectations society places upon them at the time of death of the person they hold the right and duty to control disposition.

We only collect the information necessary to satisfy requests of government agencies, and other third parties as requested or required to complete the arrangements.

We do not release this information to anyone not authorized by the legal next of kin or the person designated by the legal next of kin to contract with us. If you are the legal next of kin or the person contracting with us, the mailing address designated by you on the death certificate will become a public record. You may give a Post Office Box for your mailing address on the death certificate and give us your home address. We will not release your home address or your telephone number.

We will collect information from you for public documents, hospitals, churches, consulates, airlines, county health departments and give them what they require to complete your arrangement, but we will not give it out to someone who walks into the funeral home or calls on the phone, even if they tell us they are a relative without your permission.

For example: If a member of the public wishes to send a condolence card to the survivor, we will not release the address of the survivors, but we will instruct the requestor to deposit or mail any such items to the funeral home. Subsequently we will forward the card to the survivor.
