Funeral Home or Coroner Recomendation


Recommended Posts

I would like to preplan my funeral arrangements. Do any of you have recommendations for someone that does this. I don't want my relatives to have to be burdened with this.

I want to be cremated and my ashes scattered off a mountain by my friends. Thanks for you help.

Funeraria San Francisco - Funeraria en Chapala (negocio.site)

My hubby's arrangements for cremation were paid for in advance. They came to our home with all the paperwork for ease of signatures. When he passed away, they arrived promptly and were very respectful of his remains. I received his ashes in a beautiful engraved box. I particularly liked that since I had received my mother's ashes in an unmarked cardboard box in Canada. Please let your Doctor, a friend or someone know that you have made the arrangements in advance.

I had to  use  end of life services,  and used Funeraria Chapala  - 179 Morelos , Chapala.  376 765 5789  ( 331 454 4094 )

As you go into Chapala, go straight through  the light, past the fountain, and a few blocks on the left.. it has a parking lot.

The gentleman I dealt with , spoke sufficient  English,  and came  late on a Sunday night, within an hour of  the call .

Papers needed are:  a  passport and Immigration card.  That night  a photo  was taken of these papers, so I did not have to make copies for them.                                                I am sorry to  say I do not remember the gentleman's name, and can't   find his business card.                                                                                                                                    He told what he was going to do, what time he would be at my house for each of the two days, and was there on time as he said he would there. 

The next day, I received  the ashes in a respectable 'container', along with several copies of the death certificates in Spanish.                                                                              And a 'certificate'  of Cremation  if plans were to take  ashes north/out of Mexico. This was  not a prepaid  situation, and I paid the day I received the ashes. 

The agent went to Guad  the following   day to the American Consulate  with the paperwork they needed,  so Social Security would be notified,                                                 and  he brought back  several death certificates in English [ a letter from the Am Consulate accompanied the 20 certified copies )  .

The staff  there handled a most  emotional situation  in a calm and professional manner.

The September issue of the Lake Chapala Society's monthly magazine, Conecciones. is devoted to 
 How to be Prepared in Case of an Emergency.  LOTS of valuable information.

There is a link on the upper left of the home page... the magazine can be downloaded or hard copy available at the office at LCS.

I prepaid for my cremation with San Francisco Funeraria in Chapala. They are very well organized. They will ship my ashes to a niece in Vancouver who will look after placing them in the ground with a great grandfather who is in an unmarked grave and she will have a plaque made for both of us.  20,000 pesos.

Sadly, I add this information.   A friend died this week in a hospital in Guad. 

I recommended the services  of Funeraria Chapala  - 179 Morelos , Chapala.  376 765 5789  ( 331 454 4094 )  to  the family.   I used  their services  Feb 2018. 

The family contacted  that funeral parlor ..  they brought back the deceased from Guad,   provided the cremation  services,  and brought them  all the  paperwork                     to their home, along   with  the ashes - within less than 48 hours.  .. [ Cremation  Certificate - need for transport out of Mexico, death certificates in both Spanish                and English  and SS notified  via the American Consulate when the agent met with them ].  

The total bill was 14,500 pesos. .. the same price I paid 2/14/2018 ,  and the same professional agent - Arturo [ whose name I could not recall when I did my previous posting ]
