We carry out your wishes simply, very affordably and with dignity. Whether you are pre-planning your own arrangements or have experienced the death of a loved one, we are honored that you have chosen us, the LOWEST COST cremation service provider in Humboldt County.
Prior to drafting any contract for goods and services, the responsible party or the decedent’s survivor who is handling the funeral arrangements is entitled to receive a copy of any preneed agreement in the possession of the funeral establishment that has been signed and paid for, in full or in part, by or on behalf of the decedent.

ABOUT OUR DIRECT CREMATION PACKAGE: Our package includes: basic services of trained professionals and staff, transfer of remains within 20 miles of Eureka, use of refrigeration, cremation container and crematory fee. If you want to arrange a direct cremation, you can use an alternative container. Alternative containers encase the body and can be made of materials like fiberboard or composition materials (with or without an outside covering). The container we provide is a corrugated cardboard container which is already included in our direct cremation charge. If the customer provides their own container, subtract $10 from the package price.
Our discounted offering is for those who just lost a loved one and wants a simple cremation. Additional goods and services may be selected from our itemized pricing. Payment must be made at the time of arrangements by cash, local check or credit card to get the discount. No billing or insurance assignments.
We'll give you the honest and straight answers you need

Is a casket required?
While individuals and families may choose a casket, or rent a casket for a funeral or memorial service prior to cremation, a casket is not necessary for cremation. When a casket is not chosen, the deceased is placed in a combustible, environmentally safe container for respectful handling during the cremation process.
