Our Story

England Family Mortuary began as a dream several years ago in Long Beach, CA. EFM manager, Joshua, and his father, Greg, worked part-time for a local funeral home and often were assigned to work on the same funeral. "We talked about how nice it would be to some day own our own funeral home and work full time together."

At that time, Joshua was in college, coaching his high school varsity baseball and soccer teams while Greg pastored a church full time. The idea was a dream at best.

Josh graduated from college and went to work full time for a prominent funeral home in Los Angeles. In time he moved to Temecula to be closer to his fiance, knowing they would make their home in the Temecula Valley. He continued to work full time as a funeral director and the dream was still a dream.

In February of 2007, the dream took on reality as we had the opportunity to purchase the land and building of the mortuary where Joshua worked. Completely renovating the facility, England Family Mortuary opened for business in June of that year.

Greg resigned after 30 years of pastoring churches to move to Winchester and work full time with Josh. The dream literally became reality. Janice England also left a teaching career to work with her husband and son as a pre-needs counselor, making this truly a family venture. She was licensed by the State of California as a funeral director in the summer of 2008.

With our combined 67 years of experience in dealing with families in grief, we bring to the funeral profession a heart-felt desire to minister to our families as they walk through this process. The interior of our mortuary has a distinct "at home" feel to it and we are very intentional in our desire to use this profession as a ministry to honor God.
