In 2014 we decided to shake up the local funeral industry, we opened our very own state of the art crematory just a little over a mile away from our funeral home in the neighboring city of Murrieta. We purchased a warehouse and built the crematory from the ground up. We started with a staff of just one crematory operator and quickly grew to a full time staff of three lovely ladies who handle all the pick ups, scheduling, cremating and releasing to our families all over Southern California.
For England Family Mortuary it was a necessity to have our own crematory to be able to control the entire disposition process from start to finish. We had been using a crematory about 20 miles away since we opened our funeral home and they were good but it was always difficult to transport back and forth and we constantly in competition with other funeral homes for cremation time slots. In addition to other funeral homes telling families that they owned the public crematory and that they handled all the cremations for us, which was simply a lie. Now that we own our very own crematory we can confidently tell families your loved one never leaves our care. We are also able to offer witness cremations and tours to families to show them how the process works making them much more comfortable with the entire cremation process.
