Why Choose Us | Scanlin Cremation and Burial | Tacoma WA Provider of Cremation and Burials

Why Choose Us


Excellent Service. Affordable Prices.

At Scanlin Cremation and Burial, we take great pride in caring for our families, and will work tirelessly to ensure we serve you to the best of our ability. Through years of working in the funeral profession, we found that one of the worst things Funeral Homes can do is shock families with a huge bill for even the simplest of cremations or burials. We knew we could do it better and more affordably. We are proud to offer the most affordable funeral plan in Western Washington while maintaining the highest level of personal service. Respectable, dignified, and honorable funeral rites are essential to all.

In addition to the services we offer, you will receive an online memorial free of charge that you can share with family and friends. While honoring your loved one is our top priority, we also want to help you through this difficult time. We have a wide range of resources to support you not only today, but in the weeks and months to come.  

A sampling of our offerings is listed below. Please call us at 2538204105 so we can help you through this process.

Online Memorials

We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honor of your loved one.

Tribute Videos

We can produce a personal tribute video that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include and we will transform them into a video celebration of your treasured memories. DVDs or digital files of the video are also available.

Funeral Fund Donations

We realize the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be made easily and securely online through our website, and are paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor.

Ordering Flowers

We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.

Sharing Service Details

We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your social media or Facebook or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.

Daily Grief Support Emails

We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.
