The Robert L Adams funeral parlour in Compton, CA opened in 1974 and offers the 'convenient' service to anyone who wants to see the deceased.
Owner Peggy Scott Adams told the Los Angeles Times: "It's a unique feature that sets us aside from other funeral parlours.
"You can come by after work, you don't need to deal with parking, you can sign the book outside and the family knows that you paid your respects. It's a convenience thing."
Denise Knowles-Bragg, the home's office manager, said that the drive-through idea is not gimmicky or heartless and that it is convenient for the elderly or for those on their lunch break.
Drive-through funeral parlours can also be found in Chicago and Louisiana.
