Why Choose Todd County & Cook-Webb Funeral Homes?

On the escalating cost of funeral service: the cost of funeral services to the consumer has increased significantly in the last decade due to the consolidation of funeral business and the overbuilding of funeral homes by individual owners. Large publicly owned companies paid exorbitant prices for funeral homes and were expected to produce hefty profits and returns to the investors that purchase stock. Who provides those hefty profits? The families that they serve. Although many consumers are looking for modest price services. Often times the previous owners remain employed by the corporation and are called "managing partners" a managing partner is an employee that holds stock in the corporation not in the individual funeral home. 

Simply put, with technology and all the "extras" funeral homes are caused to offer such as candle lighting on a web page or purchasing "extras" at an extreme cost to "personalize" a corporate funeral home is financially driven to improve the overall funeral cost. Some corporate owned funeral homes offer funeral directors commission for sales, others offer a bonus plan for meeting a sales quotas or income revenue quarterly and or yearly, free vacations and awards for reaching financial goals. We are not a bonus based business, nor do we have sales quotas to meet in effort to receive a bonus check, therefore what a family can afford to spend is dependent on the family. Never would we want a family to overspend on funeral service cost or put a financial burden on a family in a time of grief.

Americans believe in funerals, but want better value. This is not a new idea, just an old idea whose time has come around again. Fifty years ago, visitations and funerals were held in a home or church or a modest funeral home facility. By keeping the overhead low, the funeral home was able to offer attentive services at a modest price.

Now, Todd County & Cook-Webb Funeral Homes are bringing funeral service full circle by renewing old and sensible traditions. We are convinced that offering services at a fair price to families not only make sense, but is an ethical obligation.

Your Feedback

My mother passed away down that way while visiting family I didn’t know where to start. The coroner that dealt with my mothers death which I can’t remember his name but was so nice to told me about Marshall County funeral and cremation service. From the first conversation I had with Shane felt like a old friend he just consoles you before anything else is talked about. We didn’t have the money to get are momma back to Virginia or what Kentucky wanted to bring her across state lines which devastated us cause certain family for health reasons couldn’t make the trip but he explained to me why etc he just goes the extra mile in anything he deals with a family. He answered the numerous times I called I probably bugged him this was first time I’ve ever planned a cremation cause that’s what my mother wanted so I just had so many questions. The memorial cards they printed are so beautiful and the poem inside I don’t know if it’s used in everyone or my momma helped cause it sounds just like what she would say. We didn’t have a service a few family members and all us kids wanted to come down and say goodbye before they cremated her they was so welcoming about didn’t rush us out etc the gentleman that was there I wish I could remember his name was so nice I just really don’t have words made us drinks came and talked to us explained everything in detail it just made the situation so much more relaxing I guess you could say. I’m from Virginia and I’ve been to funerals and viewings and have never seen anyone treated as well as we were at Todd County. The funeral home is just welcoming from still having the casket buggy thing I’m sure that’s not it’s name to the furniture. I told my kids I’m going to try to expire down that way so they’ll be the ones to take care of me. Just can’t over how amazing my mother looked. As far as price goes and you can tell their not about price at all I’m happy with what we paid. Thank you all for taking such great care of us and my mother. To the gentleman there yesterday with us for Margie Frame 6/2021 god bless I could thank you a million times for being such a wonderful person To the woman that done mom obituary that I changed stuff numerous times thank you as well
