We would like to introduce you to Emmick Family Funeral & Cremation Services, a local, family owned and operated company providing quality, affordable end of life services. 

Emmick Family Funeral Services was founded on the belief that there are better, more effective ways to help people with the death of a loved one.   

Most funeral homes and cemeteries in the region have been sold to multi-national corporations. By being a local, family owned company, 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 40 years working in Seattle and West Seattle area funeral homes. Recently, his son Michael completed his apprenticeship and college mortuary science courses and is 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. 

To learn more we invite you to browse our website at www.emmickfunerals.com.  We’ll be pleased to show you our offices and answer your questions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Call us at 206-935-2207

What Our Families Say TESTIMONIALS

My family and I are so extremely grateful to have been served and cared for by the Emmick family. Desiree and Michael Emmick were constantly showing their compassion and detailed professionalism when working with my great grandmother, my maternal matriarch. Because we had a service here in Seattle and will be transporting her to California where she will be laid to rest after another service, cost is a worry that my family is having. The prices that the Emmick Family offers are so reasonable and gracious.

As someone who is experiencing the death of a very close loved one for the first time, the Emmick Family guided and supported me so well in this process. The anxiety that comes with the many moving pieces and details while experiencing such an emotional time was something they were well aware of and seemed to know exactly how to help settle that anxiety through their services. They are also available 24 hours and 7 days a week to answer questions and address concerns. Our service was held at our family's Buddhist temple and the Emmicks were present the entire time and were so respectful and engaging during that time. Along with everything else, this made us feel like they were not just some people we were contracting to do this work for our great grandmother, but people who have such strong dedication to this work of helping people lay their loved ones to rest as respectfully and compassionately as possible. I can't say enough about how impeccable and admirable this family business has been. I would recommend them to anyone.
