​​When A Death Occurs


What should I do if a death occurs at home?

When death occurs, Rose Mortuary & Crematory personnel are available to assist you at any hour, seven days a week. Please call (760) 251-7673 or (760) 773-6500 for assistance.

Will someone come right away?

If you request immediate assistance, yes. If the family wishes to spend a short time with the deceased to say good bye, it's acceptable. Our staff will come when the time is right for you. In most situations we will arrive within an hour.

If a loved one dies out of state, can Rose Mortuary & Crematory still help?

When death occurs away from home, Rose Mortuary & Crematory can assist you with out-of-state arrangements and transfer the deceased to a preferred location. Please call (760) 251-7673 or (760) 773-6500 for assistance.
