Concerning extended hold times and service delays: We are taking every possible measure to attend to families and their loved ones quickly; however, there are unavoidable delays during this unprecedented time. We apologize for lengthy hold times and delays in arrangement conferences, as our staff and venues are fully booked for several weeks. We can arrange transportation and care for your loved one until arrangements can be made. Thank you for your understanding as we work to serve each family with the highest level of care and compassion.
If you lost a loved one due to COVID-19 and paid for that loved one's funeral, interment or cremation after January 20, 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has stepped up to provide reimbursement for those expenses.
You may qualify for up to $9,000 for funeral costs related to a single loved one and up to $35,500 for funeral costs related to multiple COVID-19 deaths. FEMA is now taking applications for assistance through a dedicated call center at 844-684-6333 (or 800-462-7585 for TTY).
We can help you document funeral costs. If we have a copy of your loved one's death certificate, we can provide that to you, too. However, FEMA does not permit Rose Hills to submit documentation on your family's behalf.
In fact, be aware of fraud. No one can register you for FEMA Funeral Assistance but you. FEMA has received reports of scammers reaching out to people offering to register them for funeral benefits. FEMA has not sent any such notifications and will not contact you before you register for the program.

Our mortuary and memorial park remain open, however, funeral arrangement appointments and funeral service schedules have been impacted by these unprecedented times. To serve families during COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering the following options throughout our memorial park:
We are committed to honoring your loved one in every way possible and ensuring you and your guests feel safe conducting services with us. You can trust that we are taking the steps necessary to responsibly serve our Los Angeles community that we are privileged to be a part of. Please contact us directly if you have any questions or for more information about funeral planning or current coronavirus funeral restrictions.
A funeral service is an important event in every culture throughout history—to honor the deceased and begin the healing process with friends and family. In compliance with COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering open-air visitations and services throughout our memorial park. Each of these spaces can be tailored specifically to the individual being honored.
