Reasons to Choose Us


“Through laughter, tears-and everything in between-we're here to support you…anytime, any season.”

At Mountain View Cemetery and Piedmont Funeral Services, taking care of families of all faiths has been our number-one priority since 1863. From funeral planning to family-friendly special events, our experienced staff is here to support you through all the seasons of your life.


Losing a close friend or family member can be overwhelming. It's not uncommon to have a seemingly endless barrage of thoughts, questions, and emotions swirling around all at once. And then there's the grief, which tends to come in waves, and sometimes at inopportune moments.

The result? Feelings of confusion, exhaustion, and mental paralysis.

At Mountain View Cemetery, we understand how challenging it can be to say goodbye to an important person in your life. And we want you to know that we're here to calmly and patiently walk you through all the steps that need to be taken and all the decisions that need to be made in the hours and days following a death.

Our Sole Focus Is Your Satisfaction

We take customer service very seriously. We will present you with options and help you create a memorable event during a difficult time. We want you to walk away with the feeling that we went above and beyond for you and your family.

Building strong, trusting relationships with the families we serve is the backbone of our business. In many instances, a funeral marks the beginning of a long-term relationship with a family. In other instances, one of our many special events serves as a family's introduction to our facilities and services.

We Do More Than Funerals.

Did you know that our chapels are available for wedding ceremonies? Or that over 1,000 people regularly attend our annual pumpkin patch event, featuring free pumpkins, activities, and treats for the kids?

For over 150 years, Mountain View Cemetery has been an important fixture of the East Bay community, providing joy and comfort to families in a serene, park-like setting filled with fountains, lush gardens, and panoramic views of the water.

Whether you're in the beginning stages of planning a memorial event-or just looking for general information—we're open seven days a week and we're here to serve you.
