History & Staff

Our Story

Learn the legacy

We've learned a lot about caring for families over the years. We realize that we aren't just caring for a loved one, but the entire family. People come to us during their most difficult times, and we respond with kindness, understanding and expertise. Our goal is to make everyone feel at home as we work with them to create a memorable service in honor of a beautiful life.

A place like no other

Built in 1907 on a slight hill with an ocean view, Greenwood’s appeal began with its location. Over the years, it established itself as San Diego’s most prestigious funeral home and cemetery, expanding to include several chapels, a mortuary, crematory, three mausoleums and a collection of international and rare vegetation and statuary.

Committed to innovation & excellence

For the past 110 years, Greenwood Memorial Park has served the San Diego community with grace and dignity. Our commitment to excellence and innovation has remained unchanged since 1907, yet we have always responded to the changing needs of the community, proudly serving people of all cultures and faiths.

One-stop convenience

Known for its dignity, peace and serenity, Greenwood is a full-service facility offering the convenience of funeral, cemetery and cremation services all in one location. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with palm-lined drives, vast lawns, graceful, well-placed trees, shrubs, flowers, lagoons and lakes dotted with colored lilies.

Testimonials

What Families Are Saying

Real Stories from Real People

I want to thank Bryan from the groundskeeping dept for his thoughtfulness in taking care of my husbands grave sight (Eastlake area). He has gone above and beyond maintaining our grave-sight without being asked as he understands the importance of visiting a love one who’s passed. Thank you Bryan for all you do. Our family appreciates it!

Yesterday I came to visit my great-grandfather's grave (O.C). You looked up the location, but also Diane took us there. In addition, she noted needed repairs to his wife's gravestone, and then she encouraged us to visit the U.S. Grant, Jr gravesite. He married a C; news to us. Thanks for everything D.C
