Method of Payment

Payment for goods and services is expected at time of arrangement and are required prior to services being performed. For your convenience we accept cash, check, debit card, credit card, or approved pre-arrangement, including taking your payment over the phone.

Prior to drafting any contract for goods and services, the responsible party or the decedent’s survivor who is handling the arrangements is entitled to receive a copy of any pre-need agreement in the possession of the funeral establishment that has been signed and paid for, in full or in part, by or on behalf of the decedent.

Pre-Planning

There’s an old saying, “You wouldn’t let your kids plan your vacation, so why would you let them plan your funeral?”

Pre-planning funeral arrangements (also known as a “Pre-Need”), for yourself or a loved-one, provides you with the opportunity to make end-of-life decisions calmly and without a sense of urgency. If making arrangements for yourself, it ensures that your wishes are known to your family and will be followed after your passing, alleviating any confusion or conflict.

Pre-funding your arrangements relieves your survivors of the financial burden and makes your wishes legally binding.

For Consumer protection, when pre-funding your funeral arrangements, California law states that the funeral establishment cannot hold your funds. Pre-paid funds must be held by a third-party Trustee. Simply Remembered uses the California Master Trust to hold client funds until the time of their passing. This also protects you by making your funds available in the event that you were to pass in a location outside the Central California region, necessitating the use of another funeral establishment.

Testimonials

I respect and admire what you are doing. I want to thank you again for the help and support you gave our family in when our daughter died.

Just yesterday, I shared with another friend how moving it was for you to help us place our daughter in a shroud and then, before removing her, you turned to us and said: “She is now out of your care and into mine, and please know I will take the greatest of care with her.” We had never met but trusted you completely in just the few minutes we all shared.

B. of Goleta, CA

“What an incredibly tough time. Decisions are to be made and frankly, they just put the options out there and answered every question that I had. Even the odd questions that everyone really wants to ask, they answered. I have already recommended Simply Remembered to two friends: one whose parent passed unexpectedly and another who wants to plan ahead for herself.”

Anne of Santa Barbara, CA

“I want to thank Simply Remembered Cremation Care. We found them to be very compassionate when we called about the passing of our mother. They spent time explaining everything that would happen. Even the drivers were very pleasant and professional when they came to our house at 2 am. We were so pleased with the way everything turned out. Thank you again.”

Nicholas of Canyon Country, CA

“Simply Remembered was fantastic to work with. I was dreading making cremation arrangements but they took the time to listen and offer much appreciated guidance. Their prices were very fair and MUCH lower than the other mortuaries. They didn’t try to “sell” me but explained my options and let me decide. I can only give them the highest recommendation, not only for their professionalism but also for their services and prices.”

Willis Jackson of San Jacinto, CA

“I had two occasions within two months to use Simply Remembered. I lost my sister in February and my brother in March. They were very helpful. I found them to be very affordable. They personally delivered the ashes to my door. I want to thank them publicly for all their patience and I believe anyone thinking of having a cremation for a loved one should consider Simply Remembered. Thank you, Simply Remembered, for your kindness.”

Charlotte Sanchez of Buellton, CA
“Wonderful family-owned company. Caring, VERY reasonably priced. No high-pressure sales. Recommended by the hospice my mom stayed at. An excellent company. We were in Santa Barbara from Oregon and couldn’t have had better care. The ashes were mailed to us. Can’t say enough about how different this company was from all the other ones we called.”
Amanda of Talent, OR

“The Simply Remembered staff are compassionate and caring, as well as available 24 hours a day. They charge less than half as much for “direct cremation” as the local mortuaries. Very pleasant and professional. Highly recommended.”

Linda of Santa Barbara, CA
