When a loved one dies, the need to memorialize them with dignity is powerful. And the truth is, sometimes you’re overwhelmed and need help organizing and planning a memorial in a special way. Understanding the significance of final arrangements, our staff consists of experienced local funeral professionals who will help your family create a funeral plan by bringing together the elements of a memorable and highly personalized tribute.Preferred Cremation and Burial is San Diego’s best-rated choice for cremation services, burial arrangements, and full service traditional funerals. We offer a stress-free, simplified and convenient selection process in a comfortable and caring non-funeral environment. Our staff is ready to assist you – from planning the service, purchasing funeral flowers, designing custom memorial programs, coordinating with local cemeteries, to posting obituaries online and in print – we are devoted to our commitment, “Excellence in Service”

Our prices are affordable.

Preferred Cremation and Burial is an alternative to the higher priced funeral homes. Our services typically cost half of what they are at local San Diego funeral homes. We offer several complete funeral and cremation packages from which to choose, or you can put together your own package by selecting from our full range of services. However, if you desire to use another area funeral home, you can still purchase your funeral casket or urn  from Preferred Cremation and Burial and save thousands of dollars. We invite you to visit our  office and allow our funeral planners to offer you personal and considerate attention to your needs.

I would like to thank the Preferred Mortuary & Staff for providing excellent service in this very difficult time of the loss of my Mother Daisy. Mark , Ralph & Angelo were expert in guiding us through the whole process of burying a loved one. Needless to say they've treated us like family we can't thank them enough for the warm hospitality and kindness they have shown us throughout this process. It was a great pleasure to work with Mark in preparation of the service, very professional and caring. Angelo thank you for preparing my Mother for burial everyone commented on how beautiful she looked. Ralph the program was outstanding May God bless all of you and keep strong in health and spirit . Again the Ashby family thanks you .
