In early August I lost a family member and needed to find someone who could handle the cremation. Cremation Society of Orange Coast was not listed in the resources given by hospice by the facility we dealt with but I found the business on yelp with great reviews. I called and Nicole answered the phone. She was beyond helpful and compassionate; making what is always a difficult process emotionally smooth and easy to understand. She kept in touch along the way and I was able to pick up the ashes sooner than I expected! I highly recommend this business and Nicole is a wonderful person!

How to Choose Cremation Services
Do you know where to start when planning cremation services? It can be daunting to try to figure out what is the best fit and make the arrangements work with your budget. Your cremation service provider will be able to suggest services that stay within your budget when it comes to planning local cremation near you. The following five steps will make choosing the right cremation services easier for you to finalize the arrangements.
Set a Budget
Setting a budget for cremation service in Brea is very important. The best time to set the budget is at the beginning of the planning process. This will ensure that you do not waste precious money on something you may not need.
Choose a Package
Our simple cremation package includes everything that is needed for a basic cremation with affordable cremation pricing. This includes transportation of the deceased to our facility, permits, cremation, and an urn.
Decide on Remembrance Services
You may choose not to hold any additional services; however, you may want to hold a service in memory of the deceased. Service options to choose from include:
- Church or religious services at a place of worship
- Memorial services at our facility, local facility, or public park
- Graveside service at the cemetery.
- Military service for military members to receive honors.
If requested, there are add-ons that can be provided for a fee. Some people choose to add services like rush cremation, cremation with viewing, or private cremation.
Choose the Final Resting Place
There are unlimited options to pick from when choosing the final resting place. The most widely selected resting places are urns that are released to a family member or scattering the ashes.
Brea Cremation Service Packages
There are several service packages to choose from and there are many ways to customize each package. It is suggested that anyone looking for cremation start with our simple cremation package.
This affordable cremation service starts by transporting the deceased to the local crematorium where a licensed funeral director will oversee everything. Paperwork will need to be completed so that our staff can obtain the necessary permits for the cremation service.
For your convenience, the paperwork is available both at our office and online. Our caring and compassionate team members can answer any question you have about filling out the paperwork.
Direct cremation services are performed at our Brea crematory after the paperwork has been submitted and permits have been obtained. Once cremation procedures are over, the remains are made available in a durable cremation urn. Decorative urns are also available for purchase at an additional cost.
Cremation companies are able to offer services that are significantly lower in price than burial services. This is because traditional burial services require the purchase of a costly burial plot and casket. There are more costs associated with holding a funeral, too.
Cremation services can offer the same level of closure without the cost of funeral services.
Additional Cremation Services and Arrangements
Our crematory cremation services include a cheap cremation package because we don’t want unexpected final expenses to be a burden on our clients. If our clients want additional services, we are able to make additional arrangements for our local cremation service near Brea. For example, we can help arrange a unique graveside or memorial services.
Other Brea Cremation add-on services available through our cremation company include:
- Rush cremation (takes place within 24 hours of a Health Department Cremation Permit)
- Private cremation and witness viewing
- Ashes scattered at sea through our cremation company’s sea scattering service enhancement
How to Proceed with the Remains
Remains of the deceased will be turned over to the family following the cremation. The family must then decide what to do with the remains. There are very standard and traditional ways to store the remains, but there are also non-traditional options, too.
Typically, ashes from the cremation are put into an urn. The urn is then placed somewhere that the deceased can be remembered. Places might include a grave, a mausoleum, or a church. Some people will choose to keep the urn at their home.
If you choose to keep an urn with someone’s remains in your home, it is important to know that California has strict laws regarding how the remains are kept.
It may, however, be decided to scatter the remains. People choose to scatter remains in all sorts of places. For example, a church, garden, or the ocean. Just like keeping remains at a residence, there are state rules and regulations. It’s suggested to check the state laws on scattering ashes first.
There is an assortment of non-traditional ways that people have started to use ashes to memorialize their loved ones. If you want to know more about the memorial keepsakes and jewelry that are available, please check with one of our staff members. We are happy to help guide you in choosing an alternative way to remember your loved one.
From traditional cremation services to non-traditional ones, cremation services can be tailored to meet your needs. From basic and affordable to detailed and priceless Brea Cremation can help fulfill a variety of specialized needs with ease and comfort.
