New Tacoma's Cremation Stream Garden Evergreen Chapel Chambers Creek Chapel

Welcome

As some funeral homes and cemeteries raise prices in response to loss of market share and dwindling revenues, New Tacoma has stayed constant for over 2 years, even lowering some prices. Our commitment to the community has not and will not change, that is to provide the highest level & quality of service, in a compassionate manner, while maintaining our facilities and grounds to the high standards we ourselves would expect at reasonable prices. Being "non-profit" allows us to focus on our families, not the bottom line.

New Upright memorial section and private family estate areas being developed now. Come see the new offerings today and receive special "pre-developed" pricing.

Our pet cemetery was developed to provide compassionate care when the loss of a beloved pet occurs. We can provide burial or a private cremation of your pet. We DO NOT provide communal or multiple pet cremations unless specifically requested and authorized. See our "Pet" tab.

Thank you and we appreciate your trust in us

The Living History Tour was once again a complete success and sell out. Our thanks to the Tacoma Historical Society & the Fort Nisqually Time Travelers for making this such a wonderful, informative and memorable event. I would also like to thank our Tacoma Cemetery Advisor, Chris Engh, for his efforts and participation in this historical tour. Will we be doing this again next year - YOU BET WE WILL!


If you feel you are not being accommodated in your needs by another funeral provider that gives you the impression they're "too busy" and you're not important to them, call us.  I'm sure we can restore your confidence and assist your family.

To keep our lot owners better informed - see the "Cemetery Updates" tab for information on improvements and work in progress in the cemetery or planned  for the future.

Click on the "Cremation" tab at the top to see what makes us different from all other cremation providers in the Tacoma/Lakewood area.

Please give us a call; we are available 24 hours a day to assist you when needed. Our promise is to assist any family in need, regardless of financial ability. One thing that makes us more unique among larger area cemeteries is that New Tacoma Cemetery is a registered "not for profit" cemetery, meaning our profits are reinvested into our property rather than going to an out of state "corporate office". When you buy an interment right for burial or placement at New Tacoma, you actually become an "owner" in the cemetery.

I promise the staff of New Tacoma will act with compassion, integrity and honesty in helping you each step of the way.
