What do we do when a death occurs?

When a loved one dies, all you need to do is make one phone call.  From that moment on, we'll take on the responsibilities of the physical care of your loved one and the emotional care of those left behind.

The overwhelming feelings of despair, disbelief, shock, and numbness caused by the passing of a loved one cannot be conveyed by mere words.  Even when the death is expected, the pain that loss brings can still be devastating.  In truth, no one is completely prepared for the death of someone close to their heart.

During this difficult time, there are decisions to be made immediately, arrangements to be coordinated, and a lot of things to be considered for your loved one's final farewell.  We understand how this may feel overwhelming, especially with the grief you're feeling over the loss.  Please know that we are here to help and support you.

On this page, we've put together some information to help guide you through the process.  Always feel welcome to call our San Marcos Chapel at 760-744-4522 or our Vista Chapel at 760-726-2555 if you have other questions.

Funeral expenses may be paid with cash, check, or credit card. For your convenience, Allen Brothers Mortuary accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express.

You may also use life insurance.  If this has been your plan for your life insurance policy, please know that the beneficiary is not required by law to use the money for the funeral expense. If you provide us with your insurance information, we will provide you with an Assignment of Benefits form that will allow the insurance company to pay the mortuary directly and pay the beneficiary the balance of the coverage.

Allen Brothers Mortuary also accepts funding vehicles, such as "Great Western", "National Life Insurance (NGL)", and "Homesteaders" to name just a few. Under these programs, you make pre-arrangements for a funeral service and take out funeral expense insurance.  The insurance is used to pay the funeral expense at the time of death.  Please see our Pre Planning page for more information.

Families who may need additional assistance covering expenses can ask about our optional Funeral Fundraising program.
