A Family Tradition Since 1883

Gaffney Funeral Home is one of the oldest funeral homes in the Tacoma, Lakewood and Puyallup region. Four generations of the Gaffney family have been serving the needs of local people since the late nineteenth century. That accumulation of knowledge has resulted in a funeral home that offers one of the most flexible and superior range of services and venues found in the area today. Whether you are considering cremation or burial, we will guide you through the planning process with compassion and sensitivity.

Gaffney Funeral Home is considered one of the best funeral homes in Tacoma, Lakewood and Puyallup because we provide a personalized approach to every funeral. We understand that honoring a loved one with a beautiful, respectable and unique ceremony is a comfort during a time of loss. That is why we do everything we can to help those grieving plan the best departure ceremony possible.

Four generations of experience dedicated to serving Pierce County.
