The Values of Cypress Lawn

At Cypress Lawn Funeral Home & Memorial Park, we’ve been helping San Francisco families through some of the most difficult times of their lives for well over a century.

Over the years, we’ve worked hard to earn the respect and trust of the greater Bay Area community as we guide families through the planning of funerals and cremations for their loved ones.

In order to consistently provide high-quality service, we abide by a set of unwavering beliefs or values that guides our team through decisions every day. We believe it’s important to not only share this list of our values with our staff members but also with the families and the community we serve.

Our Families

We believe in providing our families with high-quality services that will exceed their expectations. We further believe that all of our interactions with families should be conducted with extreme care and in a timely manner.

Our People

We believe in providing our highly valued associates with an opportunity to grow their careers and achieve their goals. We also believe in providing our people with a safe working environment and an opportunity to balance their own quality of life.

Acting with Honesty and Integrity

We believe there is never a right way to do a wrong thing. We also believe in building relationships between ourselves, our families, and other stakeholders that is based on trust and reliability.

Treating Each Other with Respect and Dignity

We believe in providing our people with a working environment based on trust (i.e. a safe working environment) where their ideas, opinions, and frustrations can be heard without repercussion or retaliation. We also believe that everyone can make an important contribution to the company and that everyone has something to learn and everyone has something to teach.


We believe we are all in this together.

We believe we should always strive to do our best. We also remain committed to always seeking new opportunities to make our best even better.
