History of Bayside Community Mortuary
Bayside Community Mortuary is located at 1610 Noche Buena Street in Seaside, California, "the heart of the world-renowned Monterey Peninsula." Originally founded in 1971 as Seaside Mortuary, the business was purchased in 1978 by Mose Thomas and renamed Chapel of Seaside Funeral Directors. He quickly became an active member of the Seaside community and ingrained himself in the hearts of the many families he was privileged to serve.

In 1988 Mr. Thomas affiliated the funeral home with a national company but retained ownership of the property. Over the next 20 years he remained actively involved in the Seaside community. In 2008 the national funeral home company decided not to renew the lease on the facility, and it was then that Mr. Thomas partnered with the operators of The Paul Mortuary in Pacific Grove. The facility was renamed Bayside Community Mortuary, with the emphasis again being a true "community" mortuary, serving families of all faiths and backgrounds.

Today, Bayside Community Mortuary is the premier funeral home in Seaside, chosen by more families at their time of need than any other Seaside funeral home. Mr. Thomas and the entire staff of Bayside Community Mortuary are proud to continue the history of sincere personal service provided by a true "community" mortuary.
