About funeral planning

Planning ahead is smart, responsible and caring. When all the details for your funeral or memorial are in place, you can have peace of mind in knowing that your family has been taken care of. At Rose Hills, we take a very personalized approach to funeral plans, celebrating each and every life and consider it an honor to see that your wishes are fulfilled.

Making funeral plans in advance is important

Just as estate planning and creating a will are responsible actions, making final arrangements ahead of time makes emotional and financial sense. Making funeral plans ahead of time not only helps to relieve your loved ones of the stress of making difficult decisions at an emotional time, but it also ensures that your family won't have to second-guess what you would have wanted.

Making your final arrangements in advance allows you to carefully consider every detail of a funeral or memorial service—from choosing between traditional burial planning and cremation, designing a religious ceremony or a celebration of life, and selecting cemetery property. In turn, this keeps your family from overspending.

At Rose Hills, we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Our priority is to capture your vision while explaining all of our products, services and memorialization options in great detail. Our team of experienced funeral associates will help you determine the selections that best suit your wishes and lock in today’s prices.
