Many Options for Cremation Memorialization at Cypress Lawn

Many families assume that if they choose cremation, their options for permanent memorialization can become limited. 

At Cypress Lawn Funeral Home & Memorial Park, this is not the case. 

We offer a variety of memorialization options for those who choose cremation. We believe every family should be able to honor their loved one in the way that most aligns with their preferences and financial plans. 

Permanent Placement 

When you trust Cypress Lawn with your loved one’s cremation, you have many options for permanent placement. We offer a state-of-the-art columbaria — rooms featuring elegant glass-front niches for storing urns. Our indoor and outdoor mausoleums are spacious and built to last. Families can also select a decorative urn that reflects their loved one’s personality. 


It’s a popular choice to scatter a loved one’s cremated remains in a meaningful location (or in multiple places) that meant a lot to them. Our staff can guide you through this process. 

Traditional Burial 

If the idea of traditional burial appeals to you, a loved one’s cremated remains can be placed within our beautiful Memorial Park. Our staff can also arrange a graveside service, which serves as a healing experience. 

Cremation Bench 

A memorial bench is a perfect option for families who love the outdoors. Crafted from durable granite, our cremation benches can be engraved to feature favorite quotes, Scriptures, and more. 

Our experts are ready to answer any questions Bay Area families have about end-of-life decisions. Call us anytime at (650) 550-8808.
