About Direct Cremation

After taking your loved one into our care, we file all necessary paperwork. We perform a private cremation without witnesses. Then, we return your loved one’s ashes in a plain container through the U.S. mail. You have the option of providing us with a personalized urn.

Our Tacoma cremation services include the essential crematory process without costly add-ons that you might not want or need. Tulip’s cremation process usually takes a few days. Our family care specialists are always available for any questions or concerns.

Planning the Memorial

Choosing online direct cremation gives your family the freedom to host a memorial or celebration of life for your loved one whenever you are ready. Rather than rushing to plan a memorial service in Tacoma days after their passing, you can take your time exploring your options and plan a celebration that is truly unique and memorable.

If you have family from out of town, you can plan around their schedule, rather than rushing them to make the services following the cremation. Spend as much or as little money as you’d like, without paying a premium to funeral homes that may not offer exactly what you want. We’ve put together these articles to help you consider all the options available to you as you plan your loved one’s personalized memorial service.

Remembering Your Loved One

You always have options for memorializing and celebrating your loved one’s life and legacy. Tacoma families find that direct cremation allows them to choose from many permanent memorialization options.

Whether it is a family burial plot, a glass-front niche in a columbarium, or an inurnment in a memorial garden, Tulip’s online resources makes it easy to find the perfect option for your family. There are biodegradable urns that make scattering ashes easier, diamonds created from your loved one’s ashes, and lovely memorial jewelry.

Cost of Cremation in Tacoma, WA

It is not unseemly to shop around and compare services and providers. Many Washington families select direct cremation because it is a respectful, affordable option.

Funerals, especially traditional burial services, can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $20,000 depending on your provider and the package options available to you. Cremation costs range from $600 to $5,000, depending on the provider and package options you choose. Traditional funeral homes are generally more expensive, even if you choose a direct cremation option.

If you are interested in burial services or cremation through a funeral home, look for a trusted local provider that is conscious of your budget and will accommodate your needs. Be cautious of burial providers who try to add on unwanted extras.

I am now editing this review as Tulip called and said they were going to be doing the cremation after all. It was a frustrating, stressful couple of days, but but they were very apologetic for adding to our stress. Thank you Tulip for deciding to help with this. My son-in-law passed away unexpectedly while on a mini vacation with my daughter. After he passed she came back home to Washington and we made arrangements for a direct cremation with Tulip. It has been a very stressful time but we thought that was one thing taken care of and she couldn’t do anything else until she received the death certificates. Unfortunately this morning they called and said he was 5 pounds over their limit so we would have to find somewhere else. I even offered to pay extra, but all they could do was offer their condolences. We don’t need their condolences, we just need this nightmare to be over. There was nothing anywhere in the paperwork about a weight limit. If there had been we could have made other arrangements in the beginning!

They handled the majority of a bad situation so I was able to take care of what only I could do

Very easy and great communication. Also very very cost efficient. Exactly what you need at times like this. We lost my baby brother and decided on Tulip. Couldn't have made a better decision. They aren't super personal as it's all online.... But it's very very easy and fast. I didn't need personal. That's for when Ty came home. They answer their phone when needed, are super responsive and I highly recommend them

Everything was handled in a very professional manner. Because plans were made in advance, there were no last minute decisions to be made after my husband's death. Thank you for your assistance. I will be making my own arrangements with Tulip so my children are not left with that burden.

TULIP Cremation provide discreet, timely service. There was some duplication, particularly when interfacing with automatically generated responses through the computer. However, talking to one on one by telephone, I quickly regained my confidence in moving forward with them.
