Direct Cremation

Our 100% remote cremation providers allow us to combine 5-star service with affordability. When you choose Tulip San Jose 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 Jose 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 Jose 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 this article to help you consider all of the options available to you as you plan your loved one’s personalized memorial service.

Cost of Cremation in San Jose, 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 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.
