New Hampshire Funeral Homes
2014 New Hampshire Funeral Home Survey                                                  
In an effort to offer ways to help New Hampshire families                                                                                                                             
make informed consumer funeral purchases, we periodically                                                                                                                             
ask funeral directors for their latest General Price Lists (GPL).                                                                                                                             
The information gathered is then used to create a survey                                                                                                                                   
tool that allows anyone to familiarize themselves with                                                                                                                             
providers, and compare goods and services.

We make every effort to include as many funeral establishments                                                                                                                       
as possible by sending a written request, a follow-up email, and                                                                                                                           
at least one phone call over a one-year period. If you do not                                                                                                                               
see your local funeral home listed, please ask them to contact us                                                                                                                           
to be included. There are no costs associated with this service.

Learning How to Read a General Price List ahead of time helps de-mystify the process and ease anxiety over money concerns. We use regional surveys extrapolated from the complete list when making presentations to teach how to read a GPL. When working with hospice patients and their families, a thoughtful and informative conversation about funeral planning is empowering and often opens up communication between family members that might not otherwise occur.

Funeral Directors: Please contact us with any changes or corrections, or send an updated GPL at any time to be included. We strive to provide accurate information to benefit all.
