Our Story

A Better Way

We understand, because we’ve been there. We’ve had to make after life decisions that felt confusing and overwhelming, when all we wanted to focus on was the loved ones we had lost. That’s why we started Solace. We knew there must be a better way.

Solace Cremation provides an affordable direct cremation service with online arrangements to the Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle metro areas. The cost of Solace’s cremation services is simple and transparent, leaving no surprises or unexpected costs.

At Solace, we believe you should know exactly how much you are going to pay, upfront. Our one price of $895 for our direct cremation service includes everything from beginning to end. Our inclusive cost of cremation is not a starter price. We don’t add fees or do any upselling. It’s one price, for everything, for real. 

Solace proudly serves the Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle metro areas. Our Solace Care Team provides concierge-level support, putting the focus where it needs to be — on you and your loved one — and is available 24/7 online or via phone. Solace Cremation is a licensed immediate disposition company in Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle and each of our service partners is licensed and vetted to deliver the premium quality standards required by Solace.

What People Are Saying

I unequivocally recommend Solace. I helped friends of the family make arrangements while their father was on hospice. As others have said, everyone we talked to at Solace was professional and compassionate. A particularly welcome feature was the ability to handle all arrangements online. In our case, one daughter was out of the country and she was able to walk her mom through the paperwork. This freed the other daughter to spend uninterrupted time with her father. Being able to share the responsibility was a huge benefit. I wish Solace much success with their exceptional business.

When my father passed, I reached out to Solace. They were very informative and gave me all the information I needed. Even during COVID, they were extremely helpful and made it easy with their website. I thank Solace for helping me and making sure I was their top priority. I hope I never have to go through this again, but if I do it will be through them.
