On the escalating cost of funeral service: the cost of funeral services to the consumer has increased significantly in the last decade due to the consolidation of funeral business and the overbuilding of funeral homes by individual owners. Many times former owner's or their families regret selling a funeral home and build a low budget funeral home to compete with the old business.
Simply put, at Watson - North Funeral Home & Cremation Center we are not a "Discount" funeral home that cuts corners or services to serve your family. We are proud of the fact that we offer the finest in facilities in Franklin County as well as service that will exceed your expectations. In addition we are not a bonus based business, nor do we have sales quotas to meet in effort to receive a bonus check, therefore what a family can afford to spend is dependent on the family. Never would we want a family to overspend on funeral service cost or put a financial burden on a family in a time of grief.
Americans believe in funerals, but want better value. This is not a new idea, just an old idea whose time has come around again. Fifty years ago, visitations and funerals were held in a home or church or a modest funeral home facility. By keeping the overhead low, the funeral home was able to offer attentive services at a modest price.
Now, Watson - North Funeral Home & Cremation Center is bringing funeral service full circle by renewing old and sensible traditions. We are convinced that offering services at a fair price to families not only makes sense, but is an ethical obligation.
