If you’re seeking an honorable celebration of life, we invite you to learn more about where we came from, our vision, and the dedicated people behind our work.

A History of Caring

Affordable Mortuary was established in 1993 and specializes in cremation. Our experienced staff is here to guide you through this difficult time. Affordable Mortuary has easy freeway access from Highway 99. Our facility can accommodate a visitation, memorial service or funeral service. Services are also held at gathering halls or churches as the family chooses. We serve all of Butte, Glenn and Tehama Counties and beyond.

Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. Our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.
