Why Choose Us


Ours is not just any funeral home. With our years of experience, and highly professional, friendly and compassionate staff,

Gaffney Funeral Home is the first choice for families in and around Pierce County. We’ve been doing this work sensitively and correctly since 1883. Listed below are the primary reasons given by previously served families why they chose Gaffney.

What We Offer

Over 130 Years of Experience

The Gaffney family has been serving Western Washington residents since 1883. We have provided compassionate care and unparalleled service to more than 50,000 families. 

Puget Sound Crematory

Most funeral homes sub-contract to third-party crematories, which can be situated in industrial-style warehouses. However, the crematory that we use is owned and operated by Gaffney staff. That means your loved one will never leave the shelter of our expert care.

Fully-trained Staff

We have carefully chosen each member of our staff to ensure that our families receive the most professional, compassionate care. Everyone at Gaffney Funeral Home is trained to work to the highest standards our industry sets and to behave always with consideration, sensitivity and kindness.

Family Owned and Operated

In this region, which is dominated by huge chains and multinational conglomerates, we remain proudly independent. We are accountable to you, not to stockholders.

Personalized Services

Our caring professionals understand that every life is unique, and so every funeral should be unique too. We will listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that are comforting, meaningful, and in accordance with your wishes.

Serving All Faiths and Cultures

We care for families of all faiths, and we can provide certified celebrants for those who do not have their own religious leader. We also serve those who would prefer a spiritual or secular service.
