Saddleback Chapel: Serving Tustin & Orange County Since 1963

Learn About The Folks at Saddleback Chapel

Since 1963, families have trusted Saddleback Chapel to care for their loved ones. It is our goal to provide service beyond expectation during your difficult time of loss.

Our History

Tustin has always had much to offer area families. The beauty of the region encouraged population growth, making way for a very special need: a full-service funeral home. In 1963, Saddleback Chapel opened its doors to the community.

Our mission over the past decades has been to treat every family with extraordinary personal care, giving service beyond expectation. Our service philosophy is reflected in the words of the 19th-century English statesman, William E. Gladstone (1809—1898):

"Show me the manner in which a nation or community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the law of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals."

Saddleback Chapel was designed to offer an atmosphere of beauty and serenity, where families feel enveloped in care. That remains our primary concern today.

The past 50 years has brought significant change to our area. Tustin, known as the "City of the Trees," has grown and the population has broadened in cultural and ethnic diversity. Saddleback Chapel has kept pace with these changes and remains family-owned, independent, and deeply committed to a tradition of service to the residents of Tustin and Orange County.

Community Involvement

As your neighbors and members of this community, we host functions for music, art, and civic organizations, embracing the natural beauty of our surroundings and sharing it with others. As grief and loss professionals, we perform informational services such as addressing hospice and Alzheimer’s support groups. Citizenship is important to us as well, and we are active members of community organizations such as our local Chamber of Commerce.
