Direct Cremation with Fair Costs

Our 100% remote cremation providers allow us to combine 5-star service with affordability. When you choose Tulip San Francisco for direct cremation, you pay only for what you need and nothing more. Many families find that direct cremation offers more flexibility to create a unique memorial or celebration of life for loved ones.

Our licensed cremation providers take your loved one into our care from the hospital, hospice, nursing facility, or home. We perform a private, dignified cremation without witnesses. Tulip San Francisco obtains necessary permits and paperwork and provides you with copies of the death certificate. Your loved one’s ashes are safely returned to your home in our standard container or an urn you provide.

The Memorial

Choosing online direct cremation gives your family the freedom to host a memorial or celebration of life for your loved one whenever you are ready. Rather than rushing to plan a memorial service in San Francisco days after their passing, you can take your time exploring your options and plan a celebration that is truly unique and memorable.

If you have family from out of town, you can plan around their schedule, rather than rushing them to make the services following the cremation. Spend as much or as little money as you’d like, without paying a premium to funeral homes that may not offer exactly what you want. We’ve put together these articles to help you consider all the options available to you as you plan your loved one’s personalized memorial service.

After The Memorial

Even when you choose cremation, there are still various permanent memorialization options available to your family. Most Tulip families choose to find personalized and meaningful ways to store their loved one’s ashes. We can help you find the perfect option for your family.

From purchasing biodegradable urns to scatter the ashes at sea to beautiful, customized jewelry you can wear to keep your loved one close, we have you covered. We have explored a wide variety of memorial products so you can choose an option that best honors your loved one.

Cost of Cremation in San Francisco, CA

More American families choose cremation over traditional burial for many reasons, including the cost difference. Traditional burial services cost anywhere from $4,000 to $20,000 depending on the provider and package options you choose.

Cremation costs range from $600 to $5,000 depending on whether you choose direct cremation services or select traditional cremation through a funeral home. Traditional funeral homes are generally more expensive, even if you choose a direct cremation option.

Direct cremation cost is much less expensive because you pay only for the service that you want and need. Many families must consider finances after a loved one’s passing. If you are interested in traditional burial or cremation funeral services, look for a licensed funeral operator that respects your wishes and your budget.

The sales rep Lorenzo was very thorough. Although it took longer than anticipated, the various IDs and other paperwork eventually arrived in good order. I believe we have all the pieces in place for our eventual passing.

Tulip cremation was very helpful and understanding, if we didn't have a question they asked and answered it for us, the two people we dealt with I believe the gentleman's name was turnell and the young lady's name was Maggie they were both very compassionate and health and helpful throughout the whole cremation process I'd like to thank both of them for all their help we appreciate it and thank you very much

At the risk of sounding morbid I have to say the pandemic made us keenly aware of having our affairs in order. My husband and I updated our Will and Trust and assisted our parents with doing the same. Part of that process was making "end of life" arrangements for my parents. With her permission, I signed my mom up for cremation with Tulip. Honestly At first she was kind of resistant to discuss this, but when I explained there is an option to have her ashes mixed with wildflower seed mix for scattering, she warmed up to that idea. And as I told her, we never have to discuss this again once it's arranged. The process was very easy, and I like how it is structured through an insurance policy, so that even if something were to happen to the Tulip company the service would still be honored by another provider. Of course we have not redeemed the policy for the services yet because Mom is still alive and well. I will have her update this review once she has utilized the service. ;)

TULIP Cremation is outstanding. The level of support during a very difficult time was far beyond what I expected. I have already referred a good friend who is going through a difficult time and they too are very pleased with the level of support. Thank you TULIP and a special thank you to your associates. ❤️

The website made everything very clear and easy to do. I was making arrangements for myself, so obviously it remains to see if the follow through is as good. I am confident, though. I really had minimal human interaction, which some people might not like, but as I said, the website was very thorough.

Tulip was amazing, very afforable. Able to order what we needed online, straightforward and upfront on costs. Follow through from Tulip staff was more than what we could have asked for and very very appropriate under the circumstances. We were stunned with every follow through and interaction at every level of service and care. We HIGHLY recommend them. Thank you so much Tulip, you handled our loss with grace and care.

If I could give a 2000 star I would. Tulip treated me with dignity and respect, care from the first initial call to them. This company was just phenomenal. The prices and products, services cannot be beat anywhere. They were patient and informative. This was truly my first experience doing this type of service. It truly has me rethinking about changing my original burial service. The staff is just awesome. They made me feel like family during my time of grief of my dearly beloved brother in Love. They handle my loved one remains with such dignity. I didn't have to lift a finger except to answer questions of course they needed. And everything else was a real walk in the park. And my loved one remains was delivered way before time I was originally given. I recommend everyone to reach out to this service. Especially if it's your first experience.
