Rogue Valley Funeral Alternatives

Rogue Valley Funeral Alternatives began from an idea created in Oregon for Oregonians. For the past 12 years, we have proudly served the people of Southern Oregon and Northern California as a full-service funeral provider. We have four comfortable arrangement rooms and a visitation room with seating for up to 25 guests. We also have a lounge and ample parking is available. Rogue Valley Funeral Alternatives is located across from the Medford International Airport. Designed from a back to basics concept, we believe in honest, direct pricing that is simple. You will find all of our service options clearly stated. Dealing with a death of a loved one can be a confusing time, but it doesn't have to be. We are here to make everything as simple as possible. Our staff understands that each family has different needs and has many different questions to be answered. If you or someone you know is facing the death of a loved one, call for our helpful free booklet, Making Final Decisions.
