Albertson’s is a full service mortuary with economical prices.

About us:

We are very fortunate to have many outstanding and reputable funeral homes in Central Indiana.  Every funeral home is similar in that they offer burial and cremation services.  What separates funeral homes are their staff, prices, and customer service.

What makes Albertson’s special is that we:

  • Provide your family with the personal touch you would expect from a family-owned funeral home.
  • Understand that your family wants a staff whom they can trust, are respectful and compassionate.
  • Assist your family in planning a service that will meet your individual needs and personal budget.
  • Maintain a low overhead and pass that savings directly to your family.
  • Negotiate with casket and urn distributors to obtain their best possible prices.  We pass that savings directly to your family.  On average, Albertson’s charges 50% of the price of a casket/urn that you will be charged at a traditional funeral home.
  • Create with your guidance our signature “Celebration of Life Ceremonies”.
  • Offer green funerals for social and environmental conscience families.
  • Insure that there is full disclosure of all costs, no hidden fees or surprises when you receive your bill.
  • Under promise and over deliver on our commitment to your family.
