Scott McAulay Family New Options Funeral Service prides itself on providing a caring, family run, professional and cost effective funeral service.

We are one of the few remaining family owned and operated mortuaries left in Orange County. With three generations working together to create an experience of compassion, service, and quality.

The greatest goal of our family is to serve Christ through our business. Our calling is to our ministry and our ministry is serving those in their time of grief. Our proudest moments are when we have served a family well.

The small size and dedication to our families means that you will get personalized service. We take the time to sit down with you in either your own home or our office. In our office, we sit around a family style table and talk about who your loved one was as a person and how you would like to remember them. There are no commissions or time restrictions. We will work with you and your family until we have created the perfect memorial for your loved one.


 celebrates 20 years in Orange County in 2017. Originally founded under the name New Options Funeral Service, Gus and Scott set out to create a company that returned the funeral business to its service first roots. They have built their business by putting families first and focusing on being not just a business but friends as well.

Gus is a third-generation funeral director originally working with both his father and grandfather. Scott, the fourth generation, is dedicated to continuing and growing the family legacy.

In 2003, Scott’s wife, Linda, joined the company. Linda took over running the former Fullerton Casket Store in 2010. In 2016, the store and mortuary officially merged and both received a name change. The business officially became Scott McAulay Family New Options Funeral Service.

In 2015 Scott’s daughter, Erin, joined the business part time as she raises her young children in preparation to one day take over the business from Scott. She will be the fifth generation to serve Orange County.
