Q: Who Benefits From A $12,000 Funeral?
A: The Person Who Sold it.
The Catholic Burial Society (CBS) was founded in 2002 by a group of Funeral Service Professionals who identified problems and price disparities in the local funeral industry.
Many families who wanted a traditional funeral and earth burial were forced to choose cremation for economic reasons alone. Other families found themselves paying for extravagant services and merchandise that they did not need or want.
The Catholic Burial Society strives to simplify what traditional funeral homes make complicated. Our streamlined approach allows us to create a meaningful tribute while passing along savings to our families.
Our office staff is responsible for all the administrative needs of our client families. Working alongside our counselors, we support members in many ways:
• Social security, veterans, fraternal or insurance benefits
• Living will registration program
• Organ donation assistance
• Hospice information
• Obtaining original death certificate
• Obtaining certified copies of certificate
• Burial, Cremation and transportation permits
Our administrative staff deals with the contracted funeral directors to assure that all regulatory requirements are met, and that the contracted services are performed appropriately.
The Catholic Burial Society (CBS) is a privately owned burial and cremation society. We are not affiliated with, nor seek the endorsement of any cemetery, church or religious group. Every state has regulatory requirements to which CBS strictly adheres. Licensed Funeral Directors are the only affiliates of CBS who may sell funeral or pre-need services to our member families. When representing a family, CBS will only deal with licensed funeral directors, licensed insurance representatives and licensed crematory operators with respect to services and funeral contracts as required by law.
