Hollywood Forever has provided cremation services on its grounds to the Los Angeles community since 1928. Hollywood Forever’s cremation services are here to help reflect your most personal and intimately held beliefs. An ancient tradition, cremation has been practiced by many religions and communities. As we seek more meaningful and respectful funeral customs, cremation services can provide thoughtful and intimate remembrances. More individuals and families are selecting cremation as their preferred option, creating a new tradition for those who follow. Many people appreciate the lower cremation cost compared to traditional burial, while others consider cremation to be the most environmentally friendly option. Hollywood Forever offers a full range of cremation options, including direct cremation, witnessed cremation, cremation with a memorial service, or cremation preceded by a traditional visitation and funeral service. If public services and viewing are not selected, the cremation process itself does not necessitate embalming. Our funeral directors will help you choose the cremation services that best serve your needs – whether that is a simple, low-cost cremation or an elaborate and unforgettable celebration of life.
