El Camino Memorial - Sorrento Valley and El Camino Memorial Park

El Camino Memorial, a leader in funeral services in San Diego County, includes six mortuaries, two cemeteries and a crematory. Because the staff understands that each family is unique and has its own story, El Camino is able to provide families with the highest level of personalized service. This is why thousands of area families have chosen El Camino during their times of need.

El Camino Memorial, Imperial Avenue Chapel/Mausoleum, located on Imperial Avenue at 40th Street in San Diego, has served the area as a mausoleum, mortuary and crematory for more than 70 years. The mausoleum has one of the largest private art collections in California and contains more than 500 classic pieces of marble and bronze statuary, antique furnishings and etchings.

At El Camino, families can relax and make choices in a comfortable, no-pressure atmosphere. The funeral arrangers leave nothing to chance; they cover all details to make sure that families receive the highest quality of service.

El Camino Memorial Park has found a new and inventive way to better cater to families and their evolving perceptions of funeral services. Owning one of only 12 specially produced Harley Davidson coaches, custom built and equipped for funeral services, El Camino Memorial is providing its families with fresh ideas and innovative ways to ensure individuals receive a personalized tribute and loved ones have strong personal memories to carry into the future. Friends and fellow riders can join their loved one on their final ride in the funeral procession. The coaches can transport both standard and oversized caskets and are also equipped to safely transport urns for cremation ceremonies.
