A welcoming funeral home in Glendora
Our 118-acre property is located in the central part of Glendora—the Pride of the Foothills—and serves families from West Covina, Azusa, San Dimas and more. Our full-service funeral home includes an on-site crematory, 2 non-denominational chapels and a flower shop. And since we sit on the cemetery grounds, you're able to make all the arrangements you need to from 1 place.
Memorial Chapel seats up to 130 people in traditional pews with padded kneelers. Its midcentury stained-glass windows span floor to ceiling. The more contemporary Sunset Chapel seats up to 150 guests with flexible chair seating with pull-out kneelers. Both chapels have modern audio and video equipment. If you want to show a multimedia tribute at your or your loved one's funeral, we are happy to help you create one.
Multicultural and personalized services
Our caring team helps families of all religions and cultural backgrounds and have team members who speak Spanish. Oakdale Memorial Park offers a Korean-American veterans section. We also have an onsite crematory with a cremation viewing room and are able to conduct fast-turnaround cremations for Hindu families.
We believe that each life is unique and that each funeral or memorial should be too. We pride ourselves on customized funeral and memorial services and find creative ways to include personal passions into a service. Want a cremation with fireworks? How about a team of dancing horses at your graveside? If you can imagine it, let's talk about it.
Lean on us
If you need immediate help planning a funeral or want information about planning ahead, please call us day or night. For office visits, we are open from 8:00am to 5:00pm. You are also welcome to visit our cemetery 8:00am to 7:30pm during the spring and summer, or 8:00am to 5:30pm during the fall and winter.
Glendora's Oakdale Memorial Park has served families since its founding in the late 1800s. We are the cemetery of choice for many families in West Covina, Azusa, San Dimas, the San Gabriel Valley and Greater Los Angeles.
Occupying 118 acres, the cemetery offers a comforting environment to reflect on fond memories of loved ones. The peaceful and serene property has views of the San Gabriel Mountains and Angeles National Forest. When you first enter the property, you'll see our charming Swan Pond.
Many burial options
Though in the earliest days of the cemetery, we allowed upright monuments, we now focus on flat markers to protect the distinctly park-like environment. We do, however, offer a multitude of burial options, including private family estates, mausoleums and columbaria. The cremation garden has a small fountain, an ossuary and banks of cremation niches.
At Oakdale Memorial Park, we understand that holidays are a special time to remember and celebrate your loved ones. In order to accommodate our families during holidays, we allow holiday-appropriate decorations on grave and memorial sites in addition to the normally allowed floral decor.
Currently, this program is in place for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, Father's Day, All Soul's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. During the appropriate months, you may find details about this program, including allowable dates, in our events section below. Please feel free to contact us at any time for additional information.
Community involvement and events
We always look for ways to have a positive impact on Glendora and the San Gabriel Valley. To that end, we partner with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on impact programs that address the problem of drunk driving and help families and at-risk teenagers. We also partner with religious education organizations to help young pastors and youth ministers in training learn to perform meaningful funeral services.
Every Memorial Day, we have a celebration to honor veterans. Our team goes out the day before and places American flags on the graves of military servicemen and servicewomen. On the day of, we hold a ceremony at our flagpole with the VFW, American Legion, AMVETS and other veterans organizations. Local veterans speak about the history of the holiday and the sacrifices of our military.
On Día de Los Muertos, we invite the community to enjoy the tastes, customs and culture of the holiday with food vendors, dancers, altar contests and more.
Additionally, we host an annual Christmas Memorial Ceremony during the holiday season. We invite families to gather to remember loved ones and light candles in their memories. The ceremony is non-denominational, and everyone is welcome to participate.
Our funeral home and cemetery were officially incorporated on July 9, 1890. However, our history reaches back even further.
In 1886, the Sante Fe Railroad came into the San Gabriel Valley and changed the area dramatically. The cemetery that was here at that time—Fairmount Cemetery—was too small to meet the growing burial needs of the community. As a result, citizens of Glendora, Azusa, Covina and Santa Ana came together to purchase 20 acres to create what would later be known as Oakdale Cemetery. To begin, 6 families even gave their permission for the bodies of their loved ones to be relocated from Fairmount Cemetery to Oakdale Cemetery.
The cemetery was expanded in 1925 onto land from an adjacent orange grove. Though at first upright monuments were allowed for in-ground burials, the cemetery adopted a policy of permitting only flat grave markers in 1929. This allowed us to improve care and maintenance of the landscaping, and gave the cemetery a more natural park-like appearance.
Crematory, funeral home and chapel construction
The official name of the cemetery changed to Oakdale Memorial Park in 1948. Wanting to offer families 1 convenient location to make all their funeral arrangements, we built a crematory and funeral home on the property in 1968.
Today, Oakdale Mortuary and Oakdale Memorial Park spans 118 acres with many beautifully landscaped gardens, multiple mausoleums and columbaria, and an entire section dedicated to cremation memorializations.
To best serve you, our location now has 2 funeral chapels and a cremation viewing room.
