 Questions and answers

Don't funeral homes mark caskets up tremendously, at least 400%? 

No. Talking about the mark up on caskets is really not the point. Most items such as clothing, furniture, and jewelry are marked up as much, or more, than caskets. The real question is whether the funeral home is making an excessive profit and that answer is "No." profits run around 12.5% before taxes, not excessive by any standard.
