A Death has Occurred

At Cypress Lawn, we are available 24 hours a day at (650) 550-8808.

If a death has just occurred, please accept our condolences and know we will do everything we can to help you through this difficult time.

If a loved one dies suddenly or unexpectedly and was not under the care of a doctor, call 911. Emergency personnel will respond, pronounce the death, and make the necessary report to the coroner. If your loved one was under hospice care, call the hospice nurse to pronounce the death.

At any hour of the day or night, we can then come to transfer your loved one into our care at whatever time is best for you. We can come right away or give you some quiet time alone or to gather other family and friends. We will honor your wishes.

Begin determining the arrangements you want. Viewings? Ceremonies? Burial? Cremation? Receptions? Our caring staff can guide you through these many options. We will take care of important things like the completion and filing of the death certificate, helping with obituaries, etc.
