Planning a funeral in San Francisco
If you’re planning a funeral in San Francisco, there are dozens of funeral homes to choose from, but you should note that it’s virtually impossible to bury someone within city limits. Due to space constraints, many cemeteries have been built over, and the remaining ones are no longer accepting new internments. Those who wish bury their loved ones often look south to Colma, a San Francisco suburb in which almost three quarters of the land is zoned for cemeteries.
That being said, cremation is more common than burial in San Francisco, with the overall cremation rate in California now over 60% and growing. If you’re interested in cremation in San Francisco and planning on hosting a memorial service or celebration of life on your own (or not having an event), you may want to consider a direct cremation to save money. A direct cremation includes the necessary steps for cremation without additional services from a funeral home. There are several San Francisco direct cremation providers that offer cremations for less than $1,000.
