One of life’s most stressful experiences is the death of a spouse, friend, or relative. Add to it the dozens of decisions that need to be made after a loss and many people find themselves feeling overwhelmed.

Every day here at Sunset View Cemetery & Mortuary, we meet with El Cerrito, Oakland, Richmond, and Berkeley families who are in a state of shock as they talk through details regarding a loved one’s visitation, funeral, and reception. Our caring team has decades of experience planning services that tell the story of a life in a personal way – all at an affordable price.

Whether your choice is traditional burial or cremation, we can help you create a tribute that will be remembered for years to come. Whether you want something simple or elaborate, we can meet your needs, wishes, and budget with our wide range of options.

We aren’t a corporate-owned funeral home that finds it more profitable to make every funeral the same. Rather, we create meaningful and personal services that honor the person who died and bring comfort to friends and family members – and it’s important to us that we do this in a way families can afford.

Costs at Sunset View vary and depend on selections before, during, and after the service. This includes:

  • Services selected: A fitting tribute has many personal elements, including details like flower arrangements, live music, and memorable keepsakes to distribute to guests.
  • Casket or urn: The choice of a final resting place is a personal one. We offer a number of ways for final disposition that will work for any family’s budget and wishes. We can also help you arrange for customized monuments and headstones.
  • Transportation: We are happy to assist in providing transportation. From limousines to our unique motorcycle hearse, we can accommodate the needs and wants of your family and guests.

Choosing a funeral home for yourself or your loved one is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. For Bay Area families who choose Sunset View Cemetery & Mortuary, they can rest assured knowing they and their family will receive the highest level of care.
