About

Opening our current location in the City Heights and Talmadge neighborhood in 1950, Goodbody Mortuary has been serving San Diego, La Jolla and Mission Bay since 1920. Throughout the years, our commitment to these California communities has remained unchanged even as the funeral home has continued to lead and innovate with high standards of service.

Cremation services

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.
