Why Choose Us

Gaffney Funeral Home is committed to helping the bereaved say goodbye to their loved one in their own special way. Based in the Greater Pierce County region, here are just a few of the major benefits 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.

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.

Our Own 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 by the Gaffney family. That means your loved one will never leave the shelter of our expert care.

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.

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.

Superior Embalming Standards

While the majority of funeral providers have been embalming incorrectly for years, we take the extra time and effort to handle this aspect of our care sensitively and correctly. We prepare your loved one expertly and to your requests and expectations. We carry out all final wishes with professionalism and dignity.

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.
