Arranging a Cremation

In many ways, arranging cremation services is a similar process to that of planning a burial. You should expect to meet with the funeral director to plan the service and cremation and to file for the death certificate and any necessary permits. Watch this video to learn more about arranging a cremation.

A direct cremation refers to cremation services that do not involve visitation or a funeral ceremony. Cremation can also follow a funeral and ceremony, which requires planning a traditional funeral and arranging for the cremation to follow. After the cremation, the ashes are returned to the family.

Skylawn Funeral Home and Memorial Park has an onsite crematorium to help ensure that the process is carried out properly and with care. If you would like more information about our funeral home and cremation services in San Mateo, please contact us today at (650) 349-4411.
