Cremation

Programs & Services

The Co-op Funeral Home of People's Memorial in Seattle is committed to offering dignified and affordable cremation services to individuals and families throughout Washington State. 

Cremation is a method of final disposition by which heat, through the use of flame, is applied to break down our organic matter, reducing it to our basic elements and dried bone fragments. This is the most common form of final disposition that The Co-op Funeral Home offers our customers.

Our direct cremation packages use an alternative container in place of a casket. Alternative containers encase the body before cremation and can be made of
materials like fiberboard or composition materials. Our direct cremation packages also include a simple plastic container to hold the cremated remains giving you the opportunity to opt out of choosing an urn or taking your time to find something really special.
