Planning a funeral in Fresno, CA
If you’re planning a funeral in Fresno, a good first step is to decide whether you want to bury or cremate your loved one. If you choose cremation (like the majority of Californians do), there are several funeral homes that specifically focus on cremation, and these are often more affordable than full-service funeral homes.
Due to its large Hispanic population, Fresno also has several funeral homes that are specifically focused on the Hispanic community. These can be helpful to use if you’d prefer to make funeral arrangements in Spanish or if there are specific cultural traditions that are important to you and your family. However, almost any well reviewed funeral home should be able to accommodate your wishes.
Once you’ve chosen a funeral home, you’ll also want to decide on your loved one’s final resting place. This could be one of several cemeteries in Fresno. If your loved one was cremated, you can still choose to bury the ashes in cemetery, but you also have the options of scattering them somewhere around Fresno or keeping them in an urn.
