Details About Services Available for Funeral Home and Cremations in Tacoma, WA

Each funeral home should be able to give you a concise explanation of what you can expect with various service types and styles. We aim to keep this process simple for our clients. Information overload doesn’t help the overwhelm that many people feel when they come to see us. Here is a list of some of the standard services we offer or support. Please remember we can customize services for funeral home and cremations in Tacoma, WA, according to your circumstances.

  • Funeral Services: Funerals are traditional services typically held shortly after a person dies. This is a service to help us remember the departed and pay tribute to them. This meeting can provide closure and acceptance. The body of the deceased is present for the funeral service, often in a closed casket.
  • Memorial Services: These services have more flexibility when it comes to the timeframe that services are held. If immediate burial or cremation is chosen, the memorial service could happen soon thereafter, or it may be held at a later time. In situations where cremation is selected, the ashes may be present for the memorial service if desired.
  • Burial and Graveside Services: There are a few options for burial services. A graveside service held on location just prior to burial is one. Burials are appropriate for both intact casketed remains or containerized ashes. There are some locations that offer above-ground burial options in mausoleums or columbariums.
  • Cremation Services: Cremation can be performed if traditional casket burial is not chosen. Cremation can take place soon after death without a service attached. It may also be performed after the body has been embalmed for viewing purposes and a full funeral has been held.

Pre-Arrangements Can Be Made for Funeral Home and Cremations
