Our Crematory

Choosing cremation is a highly personal decision. We want you to be confident that your cremation provider is someone you can trust. To ensure your trust, we own and operate our own crematory located at our Laguna Beach Location. Our Crematory is the only crematory located in Laguna Beach, California.

Your family member never leaves our care

McCormick Crematory offers witness cremation and the opportunity for families to assist in the beginning of the cremation process. We ensure that the cremation is handled with care, dignity, and high standards, to assure your loved one is being cared for appropriately.

Our staff members are certified

We strictly adhere to a Cremation Code of Ethics, an assurance to you of our commitment to dignity and honesty.

The Cremation Process

Cremation is the process of reducing the body of the deceased to fragments of bone by way of heat and flame. Our funeral directors or crematory staff can explain the consistency of cremated remains in as much detail as you prefer.

Committal Services

Create a permanent gathering place for your loved one's cremated remains, where loved ones can honor and reminisce.

For those who want the ease of cremation, without sacrificing a permanent resting place to gather and remember. We can guide you through the service possibilities for your loved one's cremated remains, including an outdoor graveside funeral or cremation columbaria. Personalize your loved one's service to honor them, through military honors, masonic rights or religious leadership. We offer memorials that truly speak to your loved one, through custom grave markers and memorial flowers. No matter what your wishes, we want to help them come to light.


We can help you memorialize a loved one when scattering ashes.

This act can be an important way to begin to let go. And it can be a creative, thoughtful reflection of your loved one. From sending remains in to space to letting them go at sea, we can help you plan a unique way to memorialize a life through scattering cremated remains.

Design a Cremation as Unique as The Life Lived
