The Greenwood Difference
Since 1907, we have been honored to deliver healing experiences to the San Diego community. We exist to serve the unique needs of every family. Learn our story. Lean on us. And let our expertise lead you through the best experience possible.
We’re here to give you care and comfort as we help guide you through the planning journey.
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.
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.
