A lot has changed since Sunset View Cemetery & Mortuary was founded back in 1908, but one thing has remained the same: the level of care we provide for the families we serve. Our neighbors in El Cerrito, Kensington, Richmond, Berkeley, Pinole, and Oakland have come to us for generations with their funeral and cremation needs, and we do not take this for granted.
We know when families walk through our doors, they’re counting on our expert staff to offer professional advice and guidance, as well as compassion and kindness. After all, end-of-life decisions are often emotional and challenging. When you arrive here, you will immediately feel that you’re our first priority. Regardless of your ethnic or cultural background, no matter your faith traditions, our team of licensed funeral directors is committed to meeting your needs with excellence and care.
When we were founded more than 100 years ago in the Berkeley Hills, Sunset View was known as a small, country cemetery. As the communities around us expanded, we did too, culminating in our state-of-the-art, newly renovated facility. Every detail, from the warm lighting to the comfortable furniture to the elegant décor, was chosen with great care. We realize how much surroundings matter, especially during difficult times in life. That’s why we pour ourselves into making sure you have every comfort and convenience you need.
Head out the doors for a walk around our pristine grounds, and you’ll immediately understand why we have gained a reputation as one of Northern California’s most beautiful memorial parks and mortuaries. Our grounds are kept in immaculate condition, with our dedicated, talented grounds team making sure no detail goes unnoticed. And our panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Bay, and the downtown San Francisco skyline? You have to see them for yourself to truly appreciate their grandeur!
We encourage you to contact us to schedule a tour of our beautiful location. It would be a treat for us to show you around. If you’ve been thinking of the many benefits that come with planning your arrangements ahead of time, we make it easy with our online planning form and checklist.
It’s our hope that through our frequently updated blog and Facebook page, you can tell how much we care for our community and the people in it. We’re here for you during the good times in life, and the more challenging ones as well. Remember that you can reach out to us anytime.
