What Makes Us Different

What Makes Miller-Jones Better

By: Hamilton Jones , President

For over 35 years, Miller Jones has been among the top funeral homes in the Riverside County - providing burial, cremation and funeral services to people of all faiths, beliefs, traditions and cultures. We have become the most preferred family-owned funeral home and crematorium in the state of California.

During some of the most difficult and painful times of your life, we know professionalism and compassion are what you need the most. We get it right, from the beginning, throughout the services, and later, when we follow up to ensure everything was perfect.

Family Owned and Operated

We are one of the few remaining family funeral homes and mortuaries serving our community. This leads us to believe the most valuable thing we own cannot be seen or touched - it is the goodwill of people we have served and their recommendation of us to family and friends.  When you select Miller - Jones, you will be cared for by people who are professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable. We offer continuing services in the months ahead.

Personalized Services 

Our staff is specially selected and trained to facilitate services that reflect your needs. Our goal is to listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that will be comforting and full of meaning. 

Price And Value

We understand that we get only one chance to perform our work sensitively and correctly, and for over 35 years we have voluntarily adhered to high standards. There are other funeral homes who proclaim that they are cheap but cut corners with staff, facilities, and procedures. We attract and retain the best staff possible - our people provide consistently outstanding care to those we serve. Our facilities are new or recently renovated and easily the best in the metro area. Every family we serve receives a follow-up survey and we are proud of our 99% retention and approval rate. These responses confirm the importance of giving people quality and value for what they spend. 

Before And After The Funeral

We provide free assistance with pre-planning. You also have the option of locking in today's prices and funding your plan or simply placing your wishes on file and allowing the costs to be paid at the time of need. Furthermore, we are the area's only firm to offer full-time bereavement support. At the funeral arrangements we provide a customized package of helpful materials on the grief process. Our Bereavement Support Coordinator provides assistance to people in need as well as information about support groups, books, videos, and other materials designed to assist children, adolescents, and adults. There are no charges for any of these services. 

We encourage people to visit our facilities at any time, meet our staff and compare our prices. We are members of:

  • CMAC Cemetery Mortuary Association of California
  • International Cemetery Cremation and Funeral Association
  • Cremation Association of North America

We meet the federal standards and are proud to provide services to members of all branches of the military, and are most frequently the choice when death is in the line-of-duty.

We emphasize personal service, where in most cases you will have the same person for your at-need arrangement following through with your service. We comfortably carry out services for all religious denominations and cultural beliefs. Miller-Jones is uniquely qualified to serve your family!

Why Choose Miller-Jones

Why Choose Miller-Jones

Who Owns What? Which Funeral Home to Call

It's difficult to imagine that many of our local funeral homes are actually no longer owned by local families. Rather, they are owned by very large corporations that answer to Wall Street. These corporations often purchase locally owned funeral homes and cemeteries in the communities all over the country and then operate under the illusion that they are still a family owned business. It's also very common for these huge companies to raise the prices substantially, without increasing the level of service they provide. Not only are corporately owned funeral homes notorious for being the highest priced in town but a large share of the dollars spent at these business do not stay in our local economy. Instead, they are filling the pockets of stockholders and corporate executives.

Please, before you arrange your funeral, cremation or cemetery needs with any funeral home in or around the Western Riverside County, do your research. Buy local and support our local economy.

Miller-Jones Mortuary & Crematory has cared for families of the Riverside county area since 1975. We are proud to be among the few remaining independently owned funeral homes and crematories. Unlike others who are accountable to their stockholders and investors, we focus on your needs and earning the confidence of your family for generations to come. During some of the most difficult times of your life, choose quality and value.
