It was quite clear to myself and all of those who've had the pleasure of meeting Elliott Mitchell (usually at an unfortunate time) that his heart and soul for caring was like that of no other man.
California Cremation and Burial was founded by the late Elliot Van Mitchell in 1975 and is currently in the care of brother Martin Mitchell. Martin Mitchell has carried on the legacy of an on-going commitment to provide affordable, quality services to the community.

While other funeral homes close early, we are open for scheduled visitations around the clock. We find that by offering longer times for visitations, it makes it more convenient for those who have busy schedules and cannot make it to view a loved one or friend during normal business hours.
We offer 3 different chapels just to serve you.

We encourage funeral needs being arranged ahead of time.
Pre-planning puts yourself and your family at ease knowing that your final wishes have been taken care of. By pre-arranging your funeral with California Cremation and Burial you are locking in the cost of the funeral at today’s price and taking out all the guesswork from your surviving loved ones. You get to decide exactly what you would want for yourself or your loved one down to to the tiniest detail.
You can either come in to the funeral home by appointment or our pre-arrangement counselor can come to your location. Please call us at 619-234-3272 and ask for a pre arrangement counselor today.
