Cascade Memorial is a unique type of business that offers everything a traditional funeral home offers, with the exception of having a large, expensive funeral home building. Although traditional funeral homes can be beautiful facilities, we have found many Northwest families simply do not want the added expense and many times they prefer a “less traditional” approach to planning their final needs.

It’s true, we are less expensive, but it’s the friendly and compassionate service that defines Cascade Memorial. From helping select floral tributes for funerals to complete funeral services, we are with you every step of the way. We serve families in Seattle, WA, Bellevue, WA, Federal Way, WA, King, Snohomish, Pierce Counties, and the surrounding areas.
