History and Staff

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. Our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.

A History of Caring

With Washington State having one of the highest cremation rates in the US at 61.16%*, it did not make sense to have large elaborate facilities and vehicles that few families use, yet every family must pay for. Instead, it made more sense to utilize a low-overhead yet professional building, allocate resources more efficiently, and utilize new technologies (such as the internet) to reduce expenses. Through these simple cost reductions, Edwards Memorial is able to offer substantial savings to families without compromising quality of service.
