While there are many ways to lay your loved one to rest, direct cremation is the simplest and most affordable option. Traditional funeral homes in the Bay Area tend to be overly complicated and costly. With Tulip’s direct cremation service, you pay only for what you need, and have the freedom to create a ceremony independently that’s fully in keeping with your wishes and beliefs—without added complication or hidden fees.
To get started, you can get a quote in seconds using our website. In fact, you can make all of the arrangements online if you prefer. Or, if you feel like talking with someone who understands what you’re going through, you can call us anytime to discuss your loved one’s cremation over the phone. Our Family Care Team is available 24/7 to assist you in any way you need.
Direct cremation takes place in the days immediately following the passing and without a funeral service beforehand.

“I can't say enough about Tulip. Cremations are confusing, particularly when you are consumed by stress and emotion. I contacted a few providers and felt rushed by others. Tulip you brought compassion and care at a stressful time. Your attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. Thank you”
When it comes to giving your loved one a proper send-off, a personal, private ceremony can make saying goodbye a little less bitter and a little more sweet. How you choose to honor your loved one’s memory after cremation is entirely up to you. In San Francisco, your options include:
Depending on your choice, you may need to acquire written permission and certain permits in order to carry out your memorial service. While we cannot make these choices or arrangements for you, we do take care of acquiring a death certificate for you, which is often required when applying for burial or dispersal permits.
Tulip is based in San Francisco and offers exceptional care to families across the Bay Area.
