WELCOME TO ALLEN MORTUARY
Funeral Home & Crematory
At Allen Mortuary we understand the needs of families because we, too, are a family.
Caring for families is our business – it’s our way of life – it’s who we are.
We are privileged to be the only family-owned funeral home in the Turlock area. This means we work for you, not a board of directors or a group of stockholders. This means we provide a wide variety of services at affordable prices, without sacrificing the quality of care you receive.
Whether brought together by celebration or tragedy, we look first to those closest to us to mark life’s most important events. Family owned and operated since its inception, the familiar faces at Allen Mortuary provide the support and compassion you can only expect from neighbors and friends.
After graduating from the California College of Mortuary Science, the late William E. “Bill” Allen founded Allen Mortuary in 1952 — carrying on a family legacy of doing business in their community.
Bill’s father, the late Rev. William E. Allen, was raised with a Quaker background and was founding pastor of the Denair Nazarene Church. His brother Everett was the owner of the former Turlock Hardware on West Main Street.
Overseeing all aspects of the company, often seven days a week, Bill Allen endeavored to provide a service rich in family tradition of supporting his community. Since then, thousands of families have turned to Allen Mortuary in their time of need.
Today Bill’s grandson, Michael Allen, and his wife, Alison (Kleiber) Allen, together with a compassionate team, continue his traditions by serving families with dignity and respect while upholding the company’s core values of excellence, integrity and affordability. Allen Mortuary is committed to supporting families in their time of need with the care and empathy one can only receive from a family run business with generations of experience.
Completely remodeled in 2008, Allen Mortuary offers a warm and flexible environment where family and friends can gather to celebrate their loved ones. In 2022, an additional crematory was added allowing for the increased demand for cremation services.
At Allen Mortuary we understand the needs of families because we, too, are a family. Caring for families is our business- it’s our way of life- it’s who we are.
The Allen family has been providing family-centered care for over 70 years. Founded by the late William E. “Bill” Allen in 1952, our mission is to expertly and professionally serve you and your family with compassion, dignity and respect while upholding our core values of excellence, integrity and affordability.
Allen Mortuary is proud to be the only family-owned funeral home in the Turlock area. This means we work for you, not a board of directors or a group of stockholders.
For us, family-owned and operated also means providing a wide variety of services at affordable prices, without sacrificing the quality of care you receive. We take this obligation to our community very seriously and strive to fulfill that obligation every single day.
As members of this community our concern is genuine and our support sincere. We have a personal interest in the families we serve as they are our neighbors and our friends. We take very seriously the trust placed in us by thousands of families in our community over the past six decades.
