When making final arrangements, consider whether you prefer burial or cremation. This choice influences the funeral service you’re likely to have, and the cremation property available to you. It’s important to plan for the permanent placement of cremated remains to give loved ones a location for visitation and reflection.


If you choose cremation, Rose Hills can help you make service, merchandise and property selections that will truly reflect your legacy or that of a loved one. Our tasteful witness crematorium is available, and we also have memorial walls where you can have a loved one’s name inscribed as a permanent memorialization, whether they are interred at Rose Hills or not.


We also can assist you with the cremated remains of loved ones you would like interred or re-interred at Rose Hills Memorial Park. It is never too late to choose a final resting place for your loved ones.


Rose Hills has cremation service that plans combine commonly selected elements of a cremation service at significant savings*, but do not include cremation property. You may alternately choose individual items from our General Price List.

Cremation Myths

Myth:

Cremation is always chosen for financial concerns.

 

Truth:

Cremation is a personal choice that can be influenced by one’s religion, heritage, environmental concerns, personal preferences or finances. Families who choose cremation can tailor their selections to be more modest or elaborate than traditional burial.

 

Myth:

If I am cremated, I have limited burial options.

 

Truth:

There are more interment options for cremated remains than there are for caskets. Most of our memorial properties can accommodate cremated remains, and in addition there are properties that are exclusively available to families who choose cremation.

 

Myth:

If I’m cremated, I can’t have a traditional viewing.

 

Truth:

It’s not uncommon for families to have a viewing or visitation and also a funeral prior to cremation. After cremation, an indoor memorial service or gravesite service can be held. Rose Hills can host services at your place of worship as well as one of our chapels.
