Planning a funeral in San Diego, CA

There are many options to choose from when planning a funeral in San Diego, California. If you’d prefer to work with a full-service funeral home, many San Diego funeral homes have picturesque settings, which is especially important if you plan to host the funeral there.

However, many people in San Diego prefer a more informal setting. You’ll find that several funeral homes focus on direct cremation, an option in which the funeral home helps you with the cremation process, but not any events. This can be a good choice if you’re on a tight budget, and/or if you’d prefer to plan a memorial service or celebration of life on you own. Especially with San Diego’s good weather and beautiful scenery, you may want to consider a favorite outdoor location for an event.

The good weather also caters nicely to a graveside service if you plan to bury your loved one. (Remember that you can also bury cremated ashes in a cremation plot.) There are a handful of cemeteries to choose from directly in San Diego, but it may also be worth exploring cemeteries in nearby towns to find the one that feels right to you and your family.
