We are committed to providing information that will help you make dignified, affordable final arrangements.

Our Funeral Home Price Survey
Our annual Funeral Home Price Survey includes a price chart which allows you to compare what all the funeral providers in our service area charge for exactly the same goods and services.

How do we determine the costs shown in our survey chart?
Every January, FCACTX volunteers obtain price lists from more than 50 funeral establishments physically located in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties. Specifically, we visited funeral homes in Austin . . . Bastrop . . . Cedar Park . . . Dripping Springs . . . Elgin . . . Georgetown . . . Kyle . . . Leander . . . Lockhart . . . Luling . . . Pflugerville . . . Round Rock . . . San Marcos . . . Smithville . . . Taylor . . . and Wimberley.

The prices in this survey were calculated by reviewing a General Price List (GPL) and a Casket Price List (CPL) obtained from each funeral provider. Because some funeral homes offer one or more packages and others do not offer packages, all costs shown in the survey are taken from products and services itemized on the price lists.

Our Cemetery Survey
Every other year we gather prices from a sampling of cemeteries in our five-county service area. The survey also includes information about the state veterans cemetery in Killeen and two national veterans cemeteries in San Antonio.To download and print,  just click on the Survey title of your choice.
