West Seattle Blog Article about Emmick Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services;

  Most funeral homes and cemeteries in the region have been sold to multi-national corporations. By being a local, family owned business, We cater to your needs with a personal touch. Our service mission is never compromised by accountability to far-off stockholders, we’re accountable to you.  We provide your family with the highest level of quality service at a fair, honest price that your loved one deserves. We understand this and support the idea that you do not have to spend a great deal of money to properly remember a loved one.

The Emmick Family has deep roots in West Seattle and decades of experience serving local families. Craig and his wife, Gayle grew up in the White Center/Burien area and raised their two sons, Matthew & Michael in West Seattle. Craig has been a licensed Funeral Director & Embalmer for over 30 years working in Seattle and West Seattle area funeral homes. Recently, his son Michael completed his apprenticeship and college mortuary science courses and is now a licensed Funeral Director & Embalmer as well.

We are not like other funeral homes or cremation services.  We are a fully licensed provider specializing in cremation and burial services with no sales pressure like many, traditional funeral homes and cemeteries. Because we do not have a large funeral home facility with viewing rooms and chapels, we have lower overhead costs and which allow us to pass on those savings to families we serve. We can facilitate cremation & burial arrangements by telephone, fax, email, in your home, or in our new office facilities located in the heart of West Seattle between the Admiral District and the Alaska Junction. It doesn’t look or feel like a funeral home, because it isn’t.  We’ve designed a casual and comfortable place to make the process easy to complete. 

Emmick Family Funeral Services also believes that attitudes and customs are changing regarding end of life services. From simple, basic cremation to full traditional, celebration of life funeral services, We can accommodate all wishes and requests. Today families are presented with more choices than ever before when it’s time to select a burial or cremation provider.  It won’t take more than a few minutes to understand why Emmick Family Funeral Services is different … and better than the alternatives.  We invite inquiry and comparison to any provider in the state of Washington.
