and prices for FCSC members
(as of October 2018)
Each of our providers sign a contract with FCSC to participate with a contractual relationship with the mortuary and/or cremation services for the society's members for a duration of two years with automatic continuation, unless one party gives notice to change the terms. The mortuary provides discounted prices to FCSC members, and their name appears in our newsletters and on our website. Each provider supports FCSC and is interviewed and approved by the Board before they become a contract provider.
Note: All direct burial prices include a minimum casket. Basic funeral and graveside service prices do not include a casket. Funeral followed by cremation includes rental casket. Contact the provider for more funeral information or prices for other services.
Executors of estates are urgently advised to note that the deceased must have been a member of FCSC for at least one year in order to get the contracted price on services from a contract provider mortuary.

GOOD WORDS FROM ACTUAL CUSTOMERS
ABOUT OUR CONTRACT PROVIDERS
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Just a note to let you know that one of your life members, Roger Lawrence Williams, Laramie, died on July 4. Upon his death, I inquired in my capacity as Roger’s personal representative with the local funeral home as to its fees for immediate cremation and was quoted “about $2,800.” I then called Bohlender’s in Ft. Collins and was quoted the exact fee listed in your most recent newsletter: $995. Both Bohlenders were extraordinarily friendly, helpful, and just plain decent. They charged an extra $70 for transporting the body to Ft. Collins; can’t imagine what the local operator would have charged. I wish more people knew about the Funeral Consumer Society, though I’m pretty sure that an acquaintance here in Laramie will join the Society, or at least pre-pay a funeral with Bohlender’s. Since I gave my last quarterly newsletter to my acquaintances, I want to make sure that your mailing address is still 4101 E. Hampden in order to send a memorial check.
John F. Freeman
(also a life member)
Editor's Note: our mailing address has changed; it is now: P.O. Box 4743; Greenwood Village, CO 80155-4743.
To Whom It May Concern,
I would just like to tell you how pleased I am with Jim Stork's handling of my wife's funeral arrangements. He was very caring, helpful, reasonable on prices, and just a good guy to deal with. I'm glad I am a member of the Funeral Consumer Society which enabled me to save thousands of dollars in funeral expenses compared to other funeral homes. It's interesting to note that most other funeral home operators never heard about the Funeral Consumer Society when I mentioned it. Thank you you for providing an excellent service to the citizens of Colorado. I've reached out to USAA Insurance and Porter Hospice to make them aware of your organization.
