Have Any Questions?

Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about Honor Cremations

What services does Honor Cremations offer?

Honor Cremations offers a curated approach to simple cremation. This means that we view a client-family‘s experience with us as just as important as the cremation itself. Unique urn offerings have been made available through Honor Cremations and we provide three simple, dignified options for the urn once the cremation is complete. Client-families may select from 1-receiving the urn by mail, 2-receiving the urn by courier service or 3-allowing Honor Cremations to scatter the ashes at sea in the San Francisco Bay.

Where does Honor Cremations offer services?

Honor Cremations is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We focus on offering cremation services in seven counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Stanislaus. We are able to perform transportation from any county within California for an additional cost.

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. If your loved-one passes away anywhere unexpectedly, 9-1-1 should be contacted. Once the hospital, paramedics, first responders, or other local authority confirms your loved-one‘s passing, they will direct you to contact a local funeral home or cremation provider.
