Honoring your wishes and traditions
We love the cultural diversity of the Inland Empire. Our team conducts services for people of many ethnicities and faiths, including Asian, Latino, Sikh, Buddhist, Catholic, Christian and Hindu. Our bilingual team speaks Spanish and English.
At Mt. View Mortuary & Cemetery, we personalize each funeral service according to your traditions and wishes. We believe that each life is unique, and that each service should reflect individuality. What does that mean exactly? It means that whether you are seeking a cremation with a champagne toast, a traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial or a modern celebration of life complete with favorite foods, live music and a send-off to remember, we manage every detail to perfection.
From costumes to cupcakes, a passion for skiing to a love of sailing, we take the things that mattered to someone and combine them to create a singular, heartfelt celebration.
Mt. View Mortuary & Cemetery has a private on-site crematory, which means your loved one never leaves our care. What's more, the crematory has a witness room for those whose customs require it or families desire it.
Cremation is important in certain religions and cultures, and more and more people are choosing cremation over more traditional burial options, but most people aren’t familiar with all of their choices when it comes to cremation. You may choose a direct cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind; a funeral with the body present, followed by cremation; or a cremation followed by a cemetery service or a celebration of life.
If you wish, cremated remains can be interred at Mt. View Cemetery.

Mt. View Cemetery was established in 1907, making us 1 of the 1st cemeteries in San Bernardino. As the city grew, so did the demand for funeral services. In 1994, Mt. View Mortuary was built on the cemetery property, adding vital convenience and simplicity when planning final arrangements.
When you enter Mt. View Cemetery, you see the Tower, a physical embodiment of our heritage. It was the original entrance to our property and has been deemed a historical landmark. In the very early days of the cemetery, funeral processions, led by horse and carriage, began at the Tower.
In 2008, the funeral home added a space for catered receptions and guest overflow for large services. Called Hinze Hall, the space is named for a previous owner, Bob Hinze.
Mt. View Cemetery is the final resting place for many politicians, judges and other notable people from Southern California. Wanting to share our rich cemetery history, Mt. View partnered with the local historical society to host a guided tour each October. Descendants of notable people buried here join us to share their stories with guests on the historical tour.
