Cremation Services in Escondido

Cremation is growing in popularity as an option for how to care for a deceased loved one.  The trend has been growing across the United States for years.  With cremation, there are a few things that are different from the traditional preparation process.  Escondido does not require embalming unless you have a public viewing of your deceased loved one’s body. A casket is not required; however, Escondido cremation services do require that a burnable cremation container be used and an appropriate urn is used for the remains.  We have all these options for you as you build your cremation package.

What is Final Disposition?

Disposition is the means of burial, interment or cremation of a deceased person.  There are several ways you can take care of your loved one’s remains. After cremation services in Escondido are carried out, the remains can be placed in an urn for permanent storage. The urn of remains can be buried in a cemetery plot or interred within a mausoleum. You may also choose to keep a decorated urn displayed prominently at your home.

If you are the responsible party for arranging the cremation service, and there are no written instructions on file, you have the right to make decisions in regards to cremation services in Escondido or some other form of disposition. The legal next of kin is typically the remaining spouse, unless there was a power of attorney filed on behalf of the deceased. Registered domestic partners, parents, adult children or siblings may also qualify as next of kin.

After Escondido cremation services are performed, you can store your loved one’s urn at a variety of locations. Please make sure that proper care is taken in choosing, as zoning laws may apply.

Scattering Ashes at Sea

There are places in California where no laws exist in prohibiting the scattering of ashes. If scattering the ashes is desired on private property or in a public area, you should get special written permission. The only requirement for scattering ashes at sea after cremation services in Escondido is that it is done at least 500 yards from shore.

We charge $125 to have your loved one’s ashes scattered at sea in either San Diego or Orange County.

A Guide To Who You Should Call First

Death Occurred at Hospital, Assisted Living Facility or Hospice

Has your loved one died at a hospital, assisted living facility or in hospice care?  We can help with this situation as well.  Call us first, and we can help guide you.  You will need a nurse or doctor to call the time of death and fill out forms for the death certificate. Licensed hospital facilities will keep a body until a funeral home or crematorium picks it up. For Escondido cremation services, you must sign a form for Declaration for Disposition of Cremated Remains before anything can be done. We have the forms you will need to fill out to begin this process.

Death Certificates

Obtaining a death certificate is important for many of the business transactions that need to happen with the loss of a loved one.  We file for the death certificate and necessary permits with the health department for you.  We can also help order them for you as well for a small fee.  If you would like to do this on your own, the hospital and local government officials can help you with the process of obtaining a death certificate and other paperwork. Allow us to take care of Escondido cremation services for you so that you can concentrate on family and friends and sharing the news of your loved one’s death.
