Personalized funerals and memorials
El Camino Memorial – Sorrento Valley serves people of all cultures and religions, and we focus on personalized memorial services. We believe unique lives deserve unique celebrations and are committed to providing fresh ideas and innovative ways to celebrate life. Over the years, we have created touching tributes ranging from traditional funerals to modern gatherings.
Personal touches can be small—photo displays and speeches by friends are common—or more elaborate. We could hang a cross behind the casket, have a surfboard at the front door, give out cotton candy at the end of the service or wear a person's favorite color. And if it's a grand celebration of life that you're looking for—a modern gathering with themed decor, live music, favorite food and drinks, and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one—that's our speciality.
These are just a few ideas. Let's imagine something special together.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.
Our Harley-Davidson funeral coach

El Camino Memorial Park cemetery
El Camino Memorial Park is a master-planned cemetery located at 5600 Carroll Canyon Road in the Sorrento Valley neighborhood of San Diego. Paul Trousdale founded the 220-acre cemetery in 1960.
The cemetery is easily one of the more beautiful properties in San Diego County (which is saying a lot, since this area has an abundance of natural appeal). Every lawn, fountain, monument and mural is meticulously maintained to retain the dignity and beauty of the grounds.
An endowment care fund ensures future maintenance, and we are considered an official green park, using reclaimed water provided by San Diego's water recycling plant.
A San Diego cemetery for all people
El Camino Memorial Park has many lovely gardens, including a veterans garden, marked by 3 flags and tasteful monuments. The veterans area allows for family estates, so military families can be memorialized together.
We offer many burial options, including traditional in-ground burial, above-ground entombment and cremation options that include niches and boulders.
El Camino Memorial Park is the final resting place for notable people such as Jonas Salk, Ray and Joan Kroc, Joseph Coors Sr. and Patty Page, but you don't have to be famous to be buried here. We serve people of all cultures, religions and backgrounds.
Please visit us
We invite you to visit the exquisite El Camino Memorial Park to see its beauty for yourself. We would love to give you a tour, and when you are ready we will help you find the cemetery property that best suits your personal preference, family tradition and budget.
On-site flower shop
El Camino Memorial – Sorrento Valley Chapel includes an on-site flower shop, open 7 days a week.
