These days, cremations are commonplace. They are seen as a flexible, cost-effective and land-saving alternatives to traditional burials. However, many families think they cannot hold a meaningful service with a cremation. This is not true. A cremation does not limit your options—in fact, it often opens the door to many unique services and memorialization opportunities. Perhaps that is why three out of every four families in Washington now choose cremation instead of burial.
At Cascade Funeral Home, we can help you arrange any type of service to be held before or after the process of cremation. We can also help you decide your loved one’s final resting place or memorialization ceremony so that family and friends can honor his or her memory.
Cremation and Funeral Service
The cremation is carried out at our own Inland Crematory after the funeral and viewing. A casket or alternative cremation container is required for this type of cremation. The cremated remains (ashes) of your loved one may be safely placed in an urn and held in one of our many above ground columbarium niches. Alternatively, you can choose another type of memorialization service, some of which are listed below.
Scattering of Ashes
Your loved one’s remains may be scattered freely within a dedicated, natural environment. There are also certain services which offer scattering among the sea or the stars.
Traditional Burial of Ashes
An in-ground burial on a family plot, so that your loved one can be memorialized alongside other relatives. Urns may be buried at the head or foot of a grave site.
Personalized Memorialization of Loved One
Inscribe your family member’s name and a special saying on a tree plaque, park bench or other special memorial. We also have customized urns and keepsakes, which are perfect for displaying inside your home.
A simple and dignified service that involves transferring the body of your loved from the place of death or the medical examiner’s office and going straight to our own Inland Crematory. There is no embalming, viewing or visitation, but you can hold a memorial service, with or without the cremated remains, at a later date if you so wish.

The State of Washington has clarified Proclamation 20-25 regarding funerals during Phase II of the reopening plan. Governor Inslee recognizes the critical role that funeral, embalmer and cemetery licensees play during this unprecedented time. Licensed funeral homes and cemeteries may conduct funeral services in a funeral home or graveside under the following conditions:
1. Hold indoor services at a place of worship with up to 25% capacity or 50 individuals, whichever is less, (excluding organization staff).
2. Maintain minimum six-foot separation between all employees, members, and visitors in all interactions and at all times.
3. Inform all guests that they must self-screen for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 before arriving at the location.
PLEASE KNOW: This does not affect our ability to serve families in their time of need. We are allowed to host funeral services following the guidelines in Governor Inslee’s proclamation and recommendations made by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We remain available by telephone at 509-674-4445 24 hours a day. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
