Our licensed facility is located at 3101 17th Street SF, CA. We are unable to accommodate visitors at this location in an effort to keep our price low for you. Our crematory is located at 1094 Yerba Buena Ave. Emeryville, CA. All of the required paperwork will be accomplished via fax or internet.

You need a certified death certificate for any asset that may be transferring from the deceased to someone else as the holding institution needs a certified death certificate to establish death has occurred. Life insurance, real estate, stock, bond, bank accounts, motor vehicles are all examples of assets that may change because of someone’s death. Death certificates are available to you from the local health department at the time you've received the cremated remains via USPS Registered mail. You may order certified copies directly from the San Francisco Health Department. Death certificates will be available approximately 8 business days after we receive the remains.
