Fernwood Cemetery and Funeral Home offers onsite cremation services with state of the art equipment. Our facilities use natural gas to reduce environmental contaminants and optimize energy use. If you should decide to create a lasting remembrance for your loved one, we invite you to inter their remains on our grounds. Our Remembrance Room, a landmark modern chapel, provides a unique contemporary location for your memorial service.

A lasting remembrance

With a permanent memorial location for your loved one at Fernwood Cemetery, family, friends and future generations have a place where they can come together to pay tribute. Fernwood offers a variety of memorialization options including: cremation burial sites, boulder niches with views of Mt. Tamalpais, wall niches, and three scattering gardens.

Direct or witnessed cremation options

We offer either a simple, direct cremation or witnessed cremation, depending on your wishes. If you desire a witnessed cremation, Fernwood’s Crematory is designed according to European and Buddhist standards to accommodate intimate ceremonies and gatherings. These ceremonies typically precede the cremation and end as the crematory door closes.

Whether you desire a direct or witnessed cremation, our staff will work with you to obtain the required authorizations and select a cremation casket and urn. Our beautiful urns include: hand-blown glass, ceramic, brass, wood, crystal, copper, and bronze, as well as a selection of natural containers for green burial.

Memorial service

Memorializing your loved one is an important part of the grieving process. Our Remembrance Room is a beautiful location to hold your memorial service. Your tribute can take place before or after cremation, or it can be held months later, on a special date, such as an anniversary or birthday. Our compassionate and caring staff will help you explore ways to create a meaningful event.
