San Diego Cremation Pricing – Fair – Honest
Funerals Your Way has Two Cremation Pricing Packages – they are designed to fit most families’ needs regarding cremation in San Diego but can be customized. They include everything you need to attend to the physical remains of your loved one. Each cremation package includes funeral professional fees, the deceased’s transfer and storage, professional fees, and one disposition permit. If you have not, we urge you to consider organ or tissue donation.
Death certificates are generally available within a few days of passing. Your loved one’s cremains are generally back in our office within a week or so for the family to pick up, or may be mailed.
Additional cremation and transport costs may apply for individuals over 300 pounds or more difficult removals. Residential removals will incur an additional charge because a different staff person is required. Sales tax on merchandise, holidays, and weekends additional. We have a guide for helping you select a funeral home in San Diego that is a good match for your family. Battery-powered devices, such as pacemakers, must be removed before cremation. We may also be able to assist with El Centro Cremation Services.
