Basic Services

The goods and services shown below are those Wade Funeral Home can provide to our customers. You may choose only the item you desire, however any funeral arrangement you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement we provide describing the funeral goods and services selected.

Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. (Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements such as a funeral with viewing.)
