What Makes Us Different
We are the community's affordable funeral home; for 27 years we've provided alternative cremations and burials that are creative, compassionate, and caring. Unlike cremation societies or corporately owned providers, we are locally and independently owned. We began in 1983 as Whatcom Cremation Society and our tradition of simplicity and affordability continues today as Whatcom Cremation & Funeral. Our options are priced to allow you to choose what you need from us and nothing more. We'll guide you through our innovative "do-it-yourself" approach for creative life celebrations and funerals. This flexibility, combined with our low-overhead operations and direct-to-crematory care give you the best value in a relaxed, informal manner...an inexpensive funeral home with our promise of integrity, personalization, and thoughtfulness.
More About Us
Providing Regional Care - We are a regional provider focused on serving four counties in N.W. Washington and are licensed to make arrangements for the whole state of Washington.
Online Resource Library -We provide free downloads of educational materials and links to important resources for you to help you in your time of need.
"High Tech AND High Touch"-We use technology to ease the process of funeral arrangements and to be efficient, but not in a way that depersonalizes our time together. We call this "High-Tech AND High Touch"; using technology to help you complete legal matters, make purchases, and bring your family and friends together with us rather then being just another impersonal internet transaction.
Local, Family Owned Operations & Crematory-We are a local, independently owned family business that has been in the community since 1983. Our crematory is located in Whatcom County and has earned the "Gold Award" by NW Clean Air for outstanding performance and commitment to the environment. We have the strength and flexibility to respond personally to our families, not as a national corporation outlet or the "second door" to another funeral home.
Family Directed Arrangements -We strive to be informal but respectful, and your time with us is an opportunity for us to learn and listen. We use a "family directed" style of care which simple means we never want you to feel pressured to purchase something you don't need or want. For memorials we act as your consultant with resources, and referrals to save the cost of hiring a memorial event team. This doesn't mean that you can't have a viewing, graveside service, military honors, reception, church service, or celebration of life. Instead, it simply means that we collaborate WITH you rather than doing it FOR you.
We Give Back to Our Community - We set aside a portion of our revenue to contribute to organizations in our community that support families and individuals in times of need. We are also contributing members to the Funeral Consumers Alliance.
