Every funeral home takes a somewhat different approach to marketing its goods and services. This can sometimes make it difficult for the bereaved to make informed decisions, since most people are not aware of the various permits, items, and procedures necessary for even a simple cremation. To clear up some of this confusion, we present here a comparison of our charges to those of All California Cremation and California Cremation Centers. These two operations are the closest to San Jacinto Valley Mortuary in services offered and cost. The figures below are as accurate as possible based on the information found on their websites on Sept. 14, 2011.

To make this comparison, we use the following situation:
The death occurs in a hospital or nursing facility in Riverside County.

Services and goods included in the comparison are:
transportation of deceased from hospital or nursing facility
a minimum alternative container for cremation
a plastic urn for cremated remains
paperwork and filing for death certificate
one death certificate
the disposition permit
the DCA fee
applicable sales tax
the family picking up the cremated remains at the mortuary.

The deceased is assumed to weigh 250 pounds or less at time of death. Note that in all three cases, there are charges in addition to the price advertised on the internet. The reason for this is that different variables affect the cost to the funeral home, and these costs must be passed on.
