At the Cremation Society of Washington, we understand why many families choose cremation services, and we are committed to providing affordable cremation options for you and your family.
Whether you have an immediate need, or you’re preplanning a cremation, our trusted experts can help guide you through the arrangement process. Our low cost cremation options are affordable for everyone, and we work with families all across Western Washington.
What We Offer
Affordable and straightforward cremation packages
Simple cremations are all we offer. We do not sell caskets, do embalming or provide limousines and hearses. Our lower overhead cost allows us to offer our services at 20%-80% less than traditional funeral homes.
Pre-planned cremations that lock in today’s price
By selecting and paying for a cremation in advance, you guarantee your loved ones will not have to find the money to pay for your funeral.
Swift response when death occurs
Our caring team strives to arrive within one to two hours at the place of death after being notified of your loved one’s passing.
A Local company serving local needs
Cremation Society of Washington is family owned and operated, and this makes all the difference in terms of service and cost. We don’t have to answer to owners who do not live in our community, which is the case with most other cremation providers in our state.
Available 24/7 to answer your calls
We are here for you. Our phones are manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You can always count on us to be available to assist families, hospice and other medical personnel when they need us.
Tacoma & Pierce County
Cremation Services Cost Comparison
Pierce County seems to have it all: majestic gardens in Lakewood, nautical activities at Gig Harbor, glass art in Tacoma and a skiing destination at Mt Rainier. It can be hard to choose when you have so many options. It’s the same when it comes to choosing a cremation provider, which is why Cremation Society of Washington has produced a cremation price comparison list for you.
We surveyed the marketplace on June 2, 2017 and compared the prices of local funeral directors for their basic services, transfer of remains from place of death (usually within 30 miles), refrigeration and shelter of remains, alternative cremation container, cremation process and temporary urn. We hope you find the information useful.
Cremation Society of Washington is dedicated to providing the highest quality and the most affordable cremation services in Tacoma. Of all of the local cremation companies, you will find that our services are competitively priced. As you search for the most comprehensive cremation plans and services that fit within your budget, we are one of the cremation companies you can depend on for low and affordable rates.
Please note: some firms include additional services whether you ask for them or not.
Here’s what you’ll need to do
How To Plan a Cremation With Us
To arrange a cremation in advance, click the Start Arrangements button, and choose one of the two direct cremation packages we offer by checking the relevant box. The only difference is one covers when death occurs anywhere in the world and the other covers when death occurs within 75 miles of your residence.
Once you have chosen your direct cremation package, go through the options to the right and make your selection.
The price of every selection you make is clearly marked. Once you have made your selections, you will be given a breakdown of the total price of the cremation, including taxes. There will be no hidden costs.
Within one to three business days, official preneed documents will arrive that require your signature. Sign and return them to our office in the provided postage free envelope. It’s that easy.
