About Stein & Son
We are a family owned and operated provider of caring and affordable cremation and burial services. Stein & Son Funeral and Cremation Service is owned by Philip Stein, a licensed Funeral Director, who has served in some facet of the funeral industry since 1982
Philip and his family decided to open Stein & Son Funeral and Cremation Service with the premise of being family owned and operated with a personal touch. While working for corporately owned funeral homes, Philip started to feel uncomfortable with the requirement of having to meet quotas, or the pressure to sell merchandise and services to families that either did not need them, or could not afford them. Thus, the Stein & Son concept was created.
How we're different
We are family owned and operated. We are not corporately owned, part of a franchise, or part of a national chain.
We offer in-home arrangements, which means we come to YOU. It may sound strange, but when you lose a loved one, the last place you really want to go to is a funeral home and sit in a room making these decisions surrounded by caskets and merchandise that you either do not need or cannot afford. We can discuss all your options and sign the necessary forms in the comfort of your own home.
Since we are a family owned and operated business, we work directly with other family owned and operated businesses in our industry. Our crematory, transfer service, and even our casket and urn vendor are all family owned. We truly believe that family owned businesses can offer the care and support you truly deserve.
Our prices are some of the lowest in the area. We do this by keeping our overhead low so we can pass these saving onto you and the families we proudly serve. Our prices for merchandise (such as caskets and urns) are also the lowest in Placer and Sacramento county. It’s no secret that most “traditional” funeral homes make their money on hiking up the price on caskets and urns. In fact, some funeral homes in the area mark up their merchandise over 300%. We keep our prices low and affordable to assist families, not take advantage of them.
