Funeral Rule

A funeral can be one of the most expensive purchases one may ever have to make. Having little to no knowledge of the industry, coupled with the added time pressure and emotional duress a person could easily be fooled and taken advantage of. Ellison-Mims Funeral Home must comply with the "Funeral Rule" or face the possibility of federal trade commission complaints being filed.

The "funeral rule" was enacted in 1984 and is designed to ensure that all funeral homes including Ellison-Mims Funeral Home provides consumers adequate information with regards to the products and services they are charged for.

As part of the "Funeral Rule", Ellison-Mims Funeral Home will provide you with a General Price List (GPL) that includes but not limited to, the expenses of funeral service items such as transportation to the cemetery and viewing or visitation services.

A general price list is available free of charge to any person who inquires in person at Ellison-Mims Funeral Home about funeral arrangements, regardless of their intent to purchase funeral services or not.
