Our Story

Honor Life, Lived

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.

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

Our one price of $895 includes everything you could need or want from a direct cremation service. The cost of cremation never increases because we don’t add fees or do any upselling. It’s one price, for everything, for real. 

Solace proudly serves the 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 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.

Can we give Solace a higher rating then a 5 star? My sister recently passed away and we were all shook up. When we decided to go with Solace, we contacted the hospital and let them know. When Solace called, all of the customer service representatives we chatted with were kind and helpful through the whole process. They contacted us from the time they were at the hospital for my sister to when everything was done. Everyone who called us were incredibly kind, thoughtful, and professional. It made the process so much easier to handle for my family’s loss. We want to thank each and everyone at Solace. Please continue the absolute best customer service you provided

Wow. My brother had passed in another state and I was his only relative, and unable to travel. I had made several calls to make arraignments for a cremation and it was overwhelming at best. Then SOLACE contacted me back via email and just made everything better She just took all I needed to do and completed the cremation. When a loved one dies we hope we can be there to complete the final arrangements and sometimes it just does not work that way SOLACE CREMATION Team will guide you through from beginning , to delivery of ashes Thank You for all you did and for taking the stress off my shoulders.
