We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Gold Coast Cremation was opened because our family saw an opportunity to expand our service area to all of Southern California by offering on-line cremation. This new idea was born shortly after we opened our own state of the art crematory in Murrieta, CA. We wanted to be able to better serve more families from Riverside, San Diego, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties, not just a typical 30 mile radius of business. We are purposefully not trying to be a full service funeral home, we strive to be the best at what we offer and that is Simple, Affordable Dignified Private Cremation Provider purely based on-line. Most families can complete all the paperwork in less than 10 minutes and never get out of their favorite recliner. You will never be asked to come into our office to “make arrangements”.

Since opening our doors in late 2015 we have served hundred and hundreds of families all over Southern California. Our family has been in the funeral industry for nearly 20 years and we bring that professionalism and attention to each family we serve. Call or click on our chat button at the bottom of the screen to talk to one of the owners anytime 24/7. We don’t outsource our cremations, once you choose Gold Coast Cremation your loved one stays in our care at our local facilities, they are not shipped off to some corporate crematory with little supervision. We would be honored to serve your family.

Our Crematory

Before Gold Coast Cremation even opened its doors for business the company was created because we already owned our very own, state-of-the-art crematory. This allows us to provide the best pricing and control our entire process start to finish. While other on-line cremation providers outsource their cremations, you can rest assured that Gold Coast Cremation will always have your loved one in our care, with onsite storage, as well as cremations in a crematory that allows you to see how it all works. Our three lovely ladies handle all the details at the crematory from scheduling, cremating and release your loved one back into your care.
