Honoring life

Honoring Life with One Tree Planted

We believe that life is precious and that death is a time for honoring life. In October 2022, we partnered with One Tree Planted to support reforestation and plant a tree in Northern California on behalf of each family that places their trust in Honor Cremations.

Each California Redwood, Sugar Pine, Cedar and Giant Sequoia tree planted will stand for generations as a living memorial for the families and individuals we have the honor of serving.


We value the trust Client-Families place in Honor Cremations.

What do I do when a loved one dies?

Should your loved-one pass away, your first step is to contact the appropriate authorities. If your loved-one passes at home while under the care of an in-home healthcare provider or hospice organization, they should be contacted right away. If your loved-one passes at home unexpectedly or not while under the care of in-home healthcare or a hospice organization, 9-1-1 should be contacted.
