A beautiful San Diego funeral home
Built in 1929 in the Spanish mission style, our distinctive building on Allison Avenue is a warm and welcoming place to plan a memorial service. Well-appointed interiors combine classic architectural elements with modern furnishings and include a large chapel with comfortable chair seating and a spacious area for catered receptions, which we are happy to help coordinate.
We pride ourselves on products and services you may not find elsewhere. Our Harley-Davidson funeral coach is a great example of that. One of only 12 such specially produced vehicles, this unusual coach allows family and friends to ride along with their loved one during the funeral procession. It was designed to carry a standard or an oversized casket; it is also equipped to transport an urn for a ceremony.

Affordable cremation services
We believe cremation should be about memories, not high prices. Cremation is important in certain religions and cultures, but regardless of cultural or religious affiliations, more and more families are choosing cremation. The funeral home partners with a locally owned and operated crematorium and provides several choices for cremation services as well as affordable cremation packages. for cremation services.
Some families choose direct cremation without a service. Some families opt for a traditional funeral service with the body present, followed by cremation. Still others have a loved one cremated and then hold a celebration of life at the funeral home, cemetery or a location especially meaningful to the person being remembered. Let a funeral director know what you’re thinking, and we will help you understand the cremation process and memorial options.
Planning a funeral or cremation in advance helps relieve your family of the emotional and financial burdens of making final arrangements during a hard moment.
