History

Kansas native Warren C. Tinkler began his funeral service career in 1925. He served as president of the Fresno County Funeral Directors Association and California Funeral Directors Association. He was also a deputy under Coroner J. Herman Kennedy for 7 years.

In 1965, the Copner family purchased Warren's funeral home, and they provided Fresno-area families with funerals and cremations until May 1997, when they sold the business.

Tinkler Funeral Chapel & Crematory, once known as Powell Undertaking Company, occupied the space of the current-day Pacific Telephone office at 1459 Van Ness Ave. for a while. Later, the funeral home was relocated to the current Mission Revival-style building at the corner of North Broadway Street and Belmont Avenue, and the name was changed to Mission Chapel of Powell Undertaking Company.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"The staff was amazing. Jose was extremely personable and made the process as easy and hassle free. I felt as if I were working with a family friend. He was extremely helpful in all aspects and was so patient in answering my many questions and helping me plan everything needed. Even when our own florist forgot the boutonnières on the very day of the funeral, Jose stepped in and handled it by creating them for us on the spot. My family was impressed on how well the staff and services went. Even in our grieving several family members recognized and commented on how great the staff is. We are truly grateful for all that were involved and would definitely recommend Funeraria Del Angel Tinkler to others as well. Thank you!"

"Staff was extremely helpful in ensuring that everything went smoothly. They were very understanding and caring, they did everything they could to make sure we were well taken care of and comfortable. They were very professional and did an excellent job in respecting any requests that were made in advance or at a moments notice. Most importantly they took care of everything from beginning to end, and made the service a beautiful one. I also truly appreciate the transparency, we were well informed up front how and what the service would look like and they went above and beyond to ensure that my family and I were well taken care of. They answered all and any questions, and put us at ease. Thank you to both Jose and Veronica for all that you both did for us during this very difficult time."
