When Death Occurs
If your loved one is under hospice care, contact hospice first. Ask them their protocol. Typically, hospice will come to the home first, before we bring your loved one into our care.
Hospitals, Nursing Homes, or other Institutional Facilities
When a death occurs within a licensed facility please contact the facility, inform them Bayview Crematory & Burial Service at 951-940-1777 is in charge of cremation arrangements.
Medical Examiners or Coroners
Some deaths require the Medical Examiner or Coroners to take the deceased into their facility. This website has release forms for the county having jurisdiction, a county Medical Examiner fee will also apply.
Obtaining of the electronic death certificate is based on you supplying us with a physician who will sign it. If you cannot supply us with a physician, the deceased will have to go to the Medical Examiner. In this situation, there will be an additional charge for the transportation of the deceased to and from the Medical Examiner.
If the place of death is not within our local service area, and/or home or board care transfer there will be additional charges from our facility for transferring the deceased.
Please note that if the place of final disposition (as listed on the Vital Statistics Worksheet) changes, an additional fee will apply to re-file the permit for disposition.
