Indigent Cremation Fund
People's Memorial Association sells unwanted cemetery plots to support our Indigent Cremation Fund.
The fund only covers the costs of cremation (removal of the body from place of death, filing of the death certificate, the cremation, the cremation tray and urn). The family is expected to pay a portion of the cremation costs. The fund is not inexhaustible and maybe closed due to lack of plot sales.
Additional costs not covered by the fund are certified death certificates and if death occurred in King County, the Medical Examiner tax.
Other restrictions apply, so please read the criteria and then contact your contracted funeral home for an application. The completed application, including the professional's letter of support, should be returned to the funeral home. Do not send the application directly to People's Memorial.
