Funeral Costs

Fees for Preparing the Body

The funeral home staff prepares the body for viewing and visitation by applying makeup, dressing the body in clothes, placing the body into caskets, and styling the body’s hair.  Some funeral homes offer a professional hairdressing service as a separate fee usually for around $35-65. Preparations fees range from $50 to $363.

The National Funeral Director’s Association’s 2006 survey found that the average other preparations fee was $203.
