People's Memorial Association...Simpler Funerals - A Natural Choice








More and more people are choosing simpler options for their final arrangements–It just makes sense. We at People’s Memorial have been a bit ahead of curve–In fact we were the first organization that made cremation available to the general public more than 70 years ago. Many have tried to copy and imitate us, but none have come to match the quality, value and service that People’s Memorial provides to its members. We have grown to 24 Select funeral homes statewide. More than 190,000 Washington state residents have entrusted their final arrangements to People’s Memorial.

People’s Memorial Association (PMA) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1939 to help the residents of Washington state avoid the confusion, sales pressure and high expense often associated with cremation and burial arrangements. We also provide education and advocacy for all consumers regarding end-of-life matters.

Members pay one low lifetime membership fee of $25 to join this organization. As a member of People’s Memorial Association you are also a member-owner of People’s Memorial Funeral Cooperative. Your membership entitles you to significant cost savings at not only our Seattle cooperative but at all of our contracted funeral homes, cemeteries and monument company. Members can save anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars depending up on the type of arrangements chosen. And you can rest assured that you will receive quality, caring services with no pressure to buy more than you want. In addition, we provide information and pre-planning documents to help assure that you receive the best value possible and your wishes are honored. Why not join today?
