Funeral Home Prices
We encourage you to call us to find out how much a funeral or cremation costs and to discuss the options for
funeral and cremation services in Pittsburgh.
We invite you to visit our new online cremation center. When you plan online, you can choose the
cremation package and merchandise
that you prefer at your convenience and in the comfort of your own home. Making your own selections and providing
the required biographical information online can also lower the cost.
When inquiring about funeral and cremation prices, a member of our staff will discuss the options with you and give you the complete costs so that you can make an informed decision about the type of service that you prefer. For example, if you prefer a Traditional Funeral Service, we will help you estimate the complete costs for other items, such as a casket, burial vault, clothing, and any other merchandise or cash advance products or services, such as copies of the death certificate, clergy honorarium, flowers, obituary notices, and cemetery charges.
The following prices are effective as of November 30, 2021, but are subject to change without notice.
Any funeral arrangements that you select at our funeral home will include our Signature Service.
From the moment your loved one enters our care, our professional staff is committed to serving with compassion and dignity.
Our Signature Service Includes:
Creative planning of a meaningful experience for everyone involved.
Coordination with clergy, florists, cemetery, crematory, or other complementary service providers.
Acquisition and completion of necessary government forms, including death certificates, veterans benefit forms, and other required documents.
Assistance with insurance and/or U.S. Veterans claims. Veterans are also entitled to funeral honors if requested.
A catered luncheon can be arranged for your convenience by our staff.

Today, more and more people are pre-arranging funeral services prior to the actual need. Most people also choose to pre-pay for the arrangements they select. At Griffith Funeral Home, we believe that making arrangements prior to the actual need is a wise decision, so we do not charge extra to guarantee the price of a Pre-Paid Funeral Plan.
"No Hidden Fee" Guarantee
Funeral costs and cremation costs can be very confusing. Often times other funeral and cremation providers will quote what seems like a low price, but actually they do not give you the complete costs and there will be hidden add-on charges after you have chosen to utilize their services.
We have made it easier to understand funeral and cremation costs. With our “No Hidden Fee" Guarantee, we give you the complete costs for only the services and merchandise that you want or need.
In other words, we guarantee that the price we give you over the telephone, in our office, or the price you see on our website, will be the price that you pay.
What some funeral homes fail to disclose are the additional fees that may be necessary, such as a Casket or Alternative Container, Outer Burial Container, and Cash Advance Items (obituaries, clergy honorariums, musician, vocalist, flowers, certified copies of the death certificate, cemetery charges, etc.).
We will be more than happy to email you a quote for the complete costs so that you will have an estimate that is as accurate as possible.
Whatever your preference, from a simple burial to a more traditional ceremony joined by family and friends, our professional staff is ready to serve you.
