Several modifications and restrictions have been made to differentiate between normal Otto Redanz Funeral Home charges and the lesser amount offered through Niagara County Cremation Care. Below are the restrictions and modifications and are subject to change at anytime, due to unforeseen circumstances, unpredictable in caring for the deceased/funeral arrangements.
