The Coronavirus pandemic has caused us to require Social Distancing and the use of facial coverings within our facility.  In compliance with State and County regulations, we will only allow ten (10) people in the mortuary at any time.  Please keep in mind that this is not to add to the hardship your family is experiencing, but it meant to protect the health and safety of those we serve as well as our employees.  Our doors remain locked and we do ask that you schedule an appointment with us to meet with our director or to deliver clothing.  We remain thankful for your trust and confidence and appreciate the honor you have bestowed on us to serve your family at this time of need.  Our continued promise is to do all in our power to make this transition as comforting as possible and we appreciate your cooperation during this time of duress.  Effective June 15, 2021, with California opening back up in most areas, our efforts to keep our customers safe continue.  IF you have been fully vaccinated, it is no longer required that you wear a face covering.  We will continue to offer all services while observing care and caution at all times.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

We no longer offer Whole Body Burial at sea.  The company we partnered with is no longer operating.
