The Tulip Difference

Few things in life are as hard as losing a loved one. But even during a difficult time, someone has to make arrangements and sign paperwork. Add to this the financial burden of post-life services and things can get stressful quickly during a time that should be spent honoring your loved one with family and friends.

Common questions the Tulip Cremation Family Care Team hears are:

  • How much should cremation cost in the Bay Area?
  • If I don’t live in the area, do I need to travel to San Jose to make arrangements?
  • Can I speak with an expert on the phone or online without visiting a funeral parlor?

Asking these kinds of questions is completely normal. What you need are answers from a knowledgeable source with none of the sales talk. You need a cremation service delivered by a trusted team that won’t surprise you with hidden fees.

Tulip was (is) such a great company to work with during our time of loss. We just wanted something simple and affordable. We found Tulip online and feel really fortunate that all worked out so well. All the folks at Tulip treated us with respect and professionalism. The process was simple and efficient. I can't recommend more highly!!

Todd D.San Jose

Tulip Cremation by far exceeded all expectations!! During a very difficult time they genuinely showed concern and went above and beyond to help us through this process. I called a few different places-They by far have the best price and the best customer care and service. They walked me through the whole process and kept us posted the whole way.

Cindy P.San Jose

Tulip Cremation did exactly what they promised--pick up my brother's body from the coroner's, pay the county fee for transport from the hospital to the coroner's office, cremate his body, and deliver the cremated remains to my home, packaged in a sturdy plastic bag in a sturdy cardboard box, in a timely manner, with clear communications at every step, all for $950.
