Woodlawn offers free removal of your loved one to our care until you make funeral arrangements (Removal must be in service area. For details, call 491-3000). Woodlawn is available 24 hours a day.
Woodlawn Cemetery offers unique waterfalls, breathtaking views of Mt. Rainer and peaceful deer grazing throughout the garden. Woodlawn is a full service facility and offers direct cremation for $777.00 with free scattering in Deer Creek Cremation Garden.
Deer Creek derives its name from the deer that are often seen walking around that area, especially in the mornings. Its features include:
A meandering creek that wanders throughout the garden.
Granite front niches (columbarium)
The niche spaces are designed for single (one urn) use or companion (two urns). In the center is a natural rock water feature, a smaller companion to the larger natural rock waterfall.
Completed in February 2008, this one of a kind cremation garden also features:
A natural rock water fall
This unique water feature includes a rock that was chosen from the Burgman family property in the Bald Hills. The rock weighs approximately 22,000 pounds and stands 9 feet high. It took the cemetery crew 2 days to drill through the rock and create the cascading water effect.
Ground Urn Burial & Spectacular view of Mt. Rainier
In Deer Creek Cremation Garden, your family can choose the natural setting where you would like to inurn your loved one. There are urn burial places near the pathway, beside trees, next to the creek, and near our natural rock waterfall.
Cremation benches take the place of a traditional granite cremation marker and are designed to accommodate six urns. Your family can choose a cremation bench space near the pathway, in the shade of a beautiful Douglas Fir tree, or along the meandering stream which runs through Deer Creek Cremation Garden.
Our Memory Wall provides a place to permanently memorialize a loved one in a natural, beautiful setting. It does not matter whether your loved one is in our scattering garden which surrounds the Memory Wall, or in another country; the memory wall is a place to come and pay respects in a peaceful, quiet place.
