Modern funeral home, diverse services

at Garden Oaks Funeral Home & CrematoryDesigned with comfort in mind, our lovely Bellaire Boulevard funeral home is warm and welcoming. We have a large chapel with flexible seating and plenty of room for gathering with friends and family—before or after a memorial service. We can even handle a catered event.

The team at Garden Oaks Funeral Home & Crematory embraces diversity and innovation. We are dedicated to creating personalized funeral and memorial services, whether that means something wholly traditional or uniquely imaginative. Perhaps you want a direct cremation and a cemetery burial or maybe the event is a modern celebration of life with live music, favorite foods and a send-off so grand people talk about it for years. Whatever your vision or your loved one's wishes, we go the extra mile to make it happen.

And although there are many decisions you may have to make during a stressful time, we'll help guide you every step of the way. From writing an obituary to choosing flowers, picking a casket or cremation urn to coordinating with the church and cemetery, we have refined processes that honor you and your loved one to ensure impeccable attention to every detail.

Cremation services in Houston

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We operate a private, on-site crematory and work with trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

"Cindy was an amazing coordinator. We had recently purchased a pre-planned package in March and were making payments and were not expecting my mother to pass 4 months later. I was able to receive a full refund and pay for itemized services. Cindy even came out to the house when we accidently took the ashes for the orb. They picked up my mother's bod

y that evening when she passed on July 10th and I received a phone call the next day to schedule an appointment. Planning an event like this is heartbreaking, but they made it a more pleasant experience. I was able to pay for all of the services that day. Received my mother's remains, death, certificates, and urn within 3 weeks after her date of death. My grandfather is buried at the Westheimer location, and my mother was cremated at the Garden Oaks location which was literally right up the street from my childhood home. There are no words to describe the excellent services we received during this difficult time in our lives. Dignity as always goes above and beyond during a time of need, and most importantly they did not try to up sell me on services that were not needed. I was able to get exactly what my mother requested, and was able to honor my mother as she stated. Thank you so much Dignity and Cindy for being a shoulder to lean on during this time of need."

"My family and I were very impressed with the care and attention that was given to us. Claude made sure our arrangements were to our satisfaction while showing compassion and empathy. Minister Boykin presided over the Celebration of Life ceremony for my father and it was done eloquently. All other staff made sure everything ran smoothly and my famil

y and I are forever grateful for the care that was given to us. My mind was at ease knowing my Dad's remains were in good hands."
