Frequently Asked Questions


Can FCA pay for my loved one's funeral?


Sorry, we don't have the funds to pay for people's funerals, BUT ideas about where to find money and reduce costs to nearly nothing are on our Financial Aid" page.


What is the least expensive funeral home in my area?


The list the police, hospice or hospital hand you is often incomplete.  We have seen that list specifically leave off the cheapest mortuary in our county.


To price shop at-a-glance using our price survey on our home page on this site. Click on the section of the state you live in. 


We are not affiliated with or sponsored by the funeral industry. 


If the specific service you want is not listed you can tell which funeral homes charge less, and if their prices are presented in a clear and ethical manner. Then reach out to them to confirm their prices for what you specifically want.

After receiving phone help one widower said, "I will be forever grateful for your help.  When I am on my feet again I will donate.  Everyone should know about what you do."
One member wrote,
"I appreciate all your work on research and letting others know.  I cringe every time I think of $12,000 to take care of a loved one after death.  That could nearly put a grandchild through college!"
