Remembering Your Loved One

Tulip helps families in Alameda County and throughout Oakland find special ways to memorialize their loved ones. Our online cremation services include resources and links that make it easier for your family to cherish and remember your loved one. Some families prefer to keep their loved one’s ashes at home, while others choose a biodegradable urn to scatter at sea. Whether you prefer to keep your loved one close with customized jewelry or plant a living memorial, Tulip offers many options for you to consider.

Cost of Cremation in Oakland, CA

The cost of funeral and cremation services vary, depending on the funeral home. More American families are choosing cremation rather than a traditional burial. According to the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), the average cost for cremation with memorial service at a funeral home is $6,970. Direct cremation is much less expensive because you pay only for the service that you need.

It is not unseemly to consider your family’s finances as you deal with a loved one’s passing. Be cautious about funeral homes with aggressive sales and marketing tactics. If you are interested in traditional burial or cremation services, look for a licensed funeral operator that respects your wishes and your budget.

Excellent communication, customer service and prices. Called them after we canceled Best Cremation Care because of poor service. Tulip stepped in and handled everything with kindness and care. Thank you!

I found Tulip Cremation on Yelp and am so glad I did. From the initial contact through receipt of the remains everything was handled with care and professionalism. When a loved one passes, it’s extremely stressful and you have a million things to coordinate. It was nice to have an organization like Tulip handle the most sensitive part so well.

Respectful, easy to work with, took care of everything that needed to be done, kind, and lastly, quite affordable

Sylvia S.

Oakland, CA

Simply the best. Months before my wife died, I set up arrangements with tulip. They were very thorough in setting up everything. When my wife died they handled everything without me needing to deal with things and letting me devote myself to my grieving and family. They are thorough, compassionate, efficient, and communicative. I cannot recommend them too highly.
