College of Marin Banner



Valley Memorial Park Cemetery and Funeral Home is located on Bugeia Lane, off of Atherton Avenue in a quiet valley on the border of Novato that looks out to the bay and is surrounded by the Rush Creek Preserve. Under the leadership of a group of seventeen local Marin businessmen, they focused on creating a beautiful and soothing setting that now includes a Funeral Home, On-Site Crematory with a state-of-the-art crematorium, two Chapels and a Reception Event Center.   Our grounds include a wide range of options including, traditional burial and cremation plots as well as mausoleums, cremation niches, a scattering garden, and an area dedicated to green burials.

Our vision and commitment is to support families who have experienced the loss of a loved one and be a peaceful and trusted environment for families to place their loved ones into our care.  Our dedicated and experienced professionals are committed to help families from all walks of life lay their loved ones to rest and honor their legacy.  Valley Memorial is a service to the people of our community. Like the Police, Fire Department, Hospitals and Churches, we are here to care for our families in need.

As part of our commitment to the community, we have sponsored a variety of health and wellness seminars and other community events in our reception center. We have supported local non-profits, and participated on several non-profit board of directors. As part of our support for the environment, Valley Memorial was one of the first to utilize recycled water as part of North Marin Water District’s water conservation program, enabling our grounds to remain green year-round by using reclaimed water.

Valley Memorial is very much a part of the community.  We have a strong belief that giving back to the community by sponsoring different non-profit organizations is important.  We strongly believe and support the need for each of us to live happy and healthy lives as long as possible and offer more to the community beyond supporting the end-of-life process. That is why we are honored to be a Sponsor of Giving Marin.  We believe that working together we can truly make a difference in the lives of so many.
