Let's start with a story

Whether you are planning for yourself or a loved one, we help you create a meaningful celebration that reflects the personality and passions of a unique life. We find inspiration almost anywhere—in a favorite song, hobby, even an iconic style—and turn that into a funeral or memorial filled with thoughtful and meaningful details. From a motorcycle processional to an art show to dancing horses, you’ll find there’s almost no limit to the special tribute we can create.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We operate a private, on-site crematory and work with trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

Our Visalia funeral home

The funeral home is close to Visalia Public Cemetery (located at 1300 W. Goshen Ave.) and has an on-site crematory.

Our professional funeral directors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to guide you through funeral and cremation arrangements. Please call us whenever you need us.

History

Established in 1903 by Julius Caesar "A.E." Brooks as Brooks Funeral Parlor, Miller Memorial Chapel has served Visalia, California, and the surrounding area for more than 100 years.

In 1963, Sam Miller and his wife, Myrtle, purchased the funeral home from Roy Brooks, A.E.'s son, and operated the family funeral business as Miller Memorial Chapel until 1996, when Sam’s sons, Paul and David, sold the funeral home. David remained an integral part of Miller Memorial Chapel until he retired in December 2015.

One of the guiding tenets of Miller Memorial Chapel is a commitment to a high standard of service. We are proud to uphold a century-old heritage and are committed to helping families for years to come.
