Fernwood Cemetery and Funeral Home dedicated to providing you with comfort and care. We offer both funeral and cremation services, including:

CHAPEL SERVICE

Our Remembrance Room is an open, peaceful, contemporary space with a view of our beautiful patio waterfall. It is suitable for many different services, including religious ceremonies, Circles of Friends, and catered receptions. You are invited to bring your own creativity and personal vision to this unique space.

We have a staff on hand to help assist you with planning a memorial service, from choosing funeral flowers to crafting a meaningful tribute by playing the favorite song of the deceased. Our Remembrance Room comfortably seats up to 125 individuals. If you desire a catered service, we can recommend several exceptional local caterers.

GRAVESIDE

Many families choose to hold a private service at graveside for a small, intimate group.

TREE PLANTING

We can arrange for you to plant a tree in memory of your loved one, as a lasting remembrance to be visited by future generations.

WITNESSED CREMATION

Fernwood’s Crematory is designed according to European and Buddhist standards to accommodate intimate ceremonies and gatherings. The ceremony typically precedes the cremation and ends as the crematory door closes. Once the ceremony has ended, you will have several memorial options. Cremated remains (“ashes”) may be placed in a celebratory urn, given a green burial on our beautiful grounds, placed in one of our niches with a view of Mt. Tamalpais, or scattered in one of our serene gardens.

JEWISH

Consecrated in 2010, Fernwood’s Gan Yarok is America’s first green Jewish cemetery. Our staff can help you plan a beautiful traditional Jewish service and burial.

BUDDHIST

We offer a Buddhist meditation area with a beautiful statue of Guan Yin for those who may want a silent memorial.

FULLY CUSTOMIZED

We can assist you in designing a truly unique memorial service to pay tribute to your loved one.
