Our History

Cremation Society of Washington was founded in 2012. Our founders are both licensed funeral directors who realized a growing majority of Washington State families were choosing direct cremation. They embarked on creating a robust website to handle the necessary steps to arrange a cremation and have been improving on it ever since. Given nearly 70% of cremation providers only sell the cremation but don’t actually perform it, in 2017 our founders made a significant investment in two crematory units.

Since that time, Cremation Society of Washington has grown to serve ten counties in Western Washington State. We’ve become a leading provider of simple direct cremation services and have served thousands of families.  Our families tell us that our control over the cremation process for your loved one from start to finish and our low price have made working with us an easy decision.

Our funeral director team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, at no extra charge, to help families at the time of death. We will respond and provide transportation of your loved one from the place of death into our care from (home residence, hospital, nursing home, coroner/medical examiner) or another funeral home.
