Where to memorialize your loved one in the Fresno area

One of the benefits of choosing direct cremation is that, once the cremation itself is complete, you won’t have to worry about the strict schedules and timetables typical of most funeral home service packages. You’ll be free to take your time in choosing what type of memorial and service would best suit your family. Many prefer to keep their loved one’s ashes at home, but in Fresno you may also choose to:

  • Bury their ashes in a cemetery or churchyard, such as St. Peter’s Cemetery or Belmont Memorial Park.
  • Inter their ashes in a columbarium, such as the Chapel of the Light Columbarium in West Fresno or the Hope Memorial Grove and Columbarium in Hoover.
  • Scatter their ashes by air or on land. Some ideal options for this type of service in Fresno include scattering in public parks like Woodward Park or over landmarks like the historic Old Fresno Water Tower.

Wherever you choose to hold your memorial service, be sure to contact the owners or appropriate authorities first for permission and information on any permits you may need before proceeding. Tulip can provide you with a burial permit (also known as a permit for disposition) to make arranging a memorial as easy as possible.
