How much does a traditional burial funeral cost in Southern Illinois?

Funeral planning and financial planning are two important yet difficult topics that many people avoid discussing. But at Maxton-Rosado Funeral Home, we understand the importance of these discussions and are here to guide you through the process of planning a funeral in Southern Illinois.

The cost of a funeral can vary greatly, but we are here to help you find the best value. We know that shopping around is important, which is why we encourage you to compare prices at different funeral homes and find the best option for you.

When it comes to burial, there are a few important decisions to make. Firstly, you will need to decide if you want a public viewing and factor in embalming services accordingly. Next, you will need to choose the casket and vault. We are here to assist you with these decisions and all other cash advances.
