XI. Sample Funeral Price Documents

The sample GPL's (p. 89-91), Outer Burial Container Price List and Casket Price List (p. 93) and Statement of Funeral Goods and Services Selected (p. 94-96) have been constructed solely to demonstrate the proper placement and wording of mandatory disclosures and itemized goods and services. The samples are not intended to endorse or suggest how funeral directors should price the goods and services they offer. Provided that the various requirements of the amended Funeral Rule are met, the ultimate design of these price documents is within the sound business judgment of each funeral director.

Following are two sample GPL's. The first model was drafted to be a simple and concise GPL with no elaboration. This model can be used by funeral directors who prefer a very basic GPL that can be easily explained to consumers.

The second model GPL is more descriptive of the services and goods offered by the funeral home. It presents various examples of how funeral directors may design listings for funeral goods and services on the GPL. Both models comply with the amended Funeral Rule.
