Affordable Cremation Services in Los Angeles
The Cremation Society of Los Angeles has been serving the needs of Southland residents for more than 75 years. A complete and total fee of $698 covers transfer of the decedent from place of death to the society’s office in Bell Gardens (within a 40 mile radius).
The society works closely with a licensed crematory which is regularly inspected by staff and available for inspection by clients and family members upon request.
Many services are included, such as obtaining required signatures from a doctor and/or coroner, completion of the certificate of death and crematory/interment permits, and covering the state filing fee. If requested, staff members will also assist with obituary notices and acquiring certified copies of the death certificate.
Cremated remains are provided in a sturdy, heavy plastic urn. Most people find it easier to select a permanent urn at the same time as other final arrangements are made, but it’s not required. Understandably, you’ll want to put some thought into creating a loved one’s–or even your own–permanent memorial.
You may choose from several high quality urn styles on the website, including solid marble, cast bronze, cloisonne, and even clock styles. There’s no pressure to do so, however. You’re always free to select something appropriate from another source.
Additional Affordable Cremation Services
In addition to its simple service, the Cremation Society of Los Angeles offers many other options designed to fulfill the specialized needs of a diverse Los Angeles area population. These options include:
Cremation with Graveside Service
Cremation with Memorial Service
Cremation with Decedent Present for Chapel Service
Non-Witness Scattering of Cremated Remains at Sea
Oak Rental Casket
One of the attorneys I work with on a regular basis recommends the Cremation Society of Los Angeles to her estate planning clients when they ask about making their own final arrangements. Many people choose to prearrange service, thus relieving their family of the burden of making cremation decisions during what is certain to be a difficult and emotional time.
