Funerals are not expensive when compared to other important life events such as births and weddings. A wedding costs at least three times as much; nevertheless, because it is such a joyous occasion, wedding expenses are rarely questioned. Because a funeral home is a 24-hour, labour-intensive business with vast facilities (viewing rooms, chapels, limousines, hearses, pallbearers, tombstones, caskets, and so on), these costs must be reflected into the funeral cost.

In addition, the cost of a funeral includes not only the merchandise, but also the services of a funeral director in arranging the service, completing the necessary paperwork, dealing with doctors, clergy, florists, newspapers, and others, and seeing to all the essential details. Funeral homes see their work to be both a service and a business, and like every other business, they must produce a profit in order to stay in business
