The death of a loved one is never easy, and making cremation or funeral arrangements can be extremely stressful in times of sadness. Working with one of our trained professionals we can outline all of your options and help you to choose the one that best suits your family’s needs.
A direct cremation is typically the simplest and most affordable cremation option.
With a direct cremation, there is no viewing or funeral ceremony, we simply bring your loved-one to our care facility while we file the permit and death certificate.
The cremation is scheduled and ashes are either returned to you, or you may elect to pick them up from one of our locations in Los Angeles.
WHY CHOOSE AN AFFORDABLE, DIRECT CREMATION WITH SACRED CROSSINGS
Sacred Crossings is owned and operated by certified Death Midwives trained to support you in making decisions gently and carefully while you are grieving the loss of your loved-one.
We work directly with families either by phone or Zoom and all of our paperwork is e-mailed and fillable online. Alternatively, we can make an appointment in the privacy of your own home to offer comfort and support and help you complete the paperwork.
If you would like to decorate the cremation box, we can arrange to have one delivered to your home (cost varies depending on distance). This can be a very healing ritual, especially for young children who have a chance to participate and express their love in messages and art work.
You may deliver the decorated box to our facility, or we can arrange to have it transported, where we will casket your loved-one before the cremation process.
Our price for a Direct Cremation is affordable at just $1400 and includes the personal care and attention of our dedicated team of Death Midwives.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN OUR DIRECT CREMATION SERVICE
- Transport from the place of death or coroner to our care facility
- Refrigerated storage of the body until cremation
- Filing of the death certificate and permits
- The cremation process in a simple cremation container
- Return of ashes in a temporary urn
HOW TO BOOK YOUR LA DIRECT CREMATION
Our direct cremation service may be arranged via e-mail or over the phone. Once your loved-one is in our care, you may expect the cremation to occur within 5 to 10 days. Rush services incur additional fees but can occur in as little as 3 days if the doctor is able to sign the death certificate immediately upon request.
At Sacred Crossings, we are committed to maintaining the sacred and providing conscious, compassionate care of both you and your loved-one. If you have questions about what type of cremation service you need, or you want to discuss your options further, please contact us today.
Although it is best to make arrangements ahead of time, we can help a family day or night, 24/7.
OUR SERVICE LOCATIONS
We provide cremation services to the entirety of Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Our transport team can be dispatched to pick up from any location in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, Long Beach, Pasadena or the Inland Empire.
CREMATION VS. BURIAL IN LOS ANGELES
Cremation is most often chosen over burial because of cost and environmental conservation. A conventional burial in California requires purchase and maintenance of land, a hardwood casket, concrete burial vault and headstone, whereas a direct cremation uses only a simple cardboard box and fuel.
Please view our burial page for options.
