Acerca de

Remarkable individuals deserve a suitably special sendoff. At Butterworth Funeral Home - Arthur A. Wright Chapel and Queen Anne Columbarium, we create funerals in Seattle that reflect the best qualities of those we serve.

Create a personal tribute

Your vibrant memories are what help inspire us to create a personalized memorial. Tell us about a lifelong passion, a hobby or the most joyful moments of a lifetime and our funeral directors will work to craft an individualized tribute. Imagine a themed evening underneath a disco ball, held in honor of the person who lived for music’s greatest era. Envision an avid golfer’s last trip to the links, in a themed service with keepsake monogrammed golf tees for guests to take to their next game. When it comes to creativity, your imagination is virtually the limit.

Of course, we still offer many traditional religious ceremonies, even as contemporary Celebrations of Life® gain in prevalence. Military funerals with optional burial of cremated remains reflect a timeless salute to those who served our country. Whatever your wishes, choose the type of service that best suits your style or integrate elements from different options to create your own unique fit.

Our Seattle funeral home

Lobby at Butterworth FH (Capitol Hill)Originally opened as the Arthur A. Wright Funeral Home in 1883, our beautiful two-story building was created in the style of Spanish architecture. The entrance opens to a reception hall with flexible space to accommodate both large and intimate guest lists. Our inspirational chapel serves celebrants of all faiths and traditions with seating for up to 150 guests. In addition, we offer a private family room located behind the pulpit. A grand split staircase leads to the choir loft, music room and chapel balcony.

Located atop Queen Anne Hill, Butterworth Funeral Home-Arthur A. Wright Chapel stands just minutes from downtown Seattle. Our convenient location bridging Mt. Pleasant Cemetery and Hills of Eternity helps us continue a long history of serving families throughout the greater Seattle area.

Queen Anne Columbarium

Mausoleum at Butterworth FH (Capitol Hill)The lovely Queen Anne Columbarium, with its stunning stained-glass windows and elegant marble floors, is adjacent to Butterworth Funeral Home - Arthur A. Wright Chapel. Constructed in 1905, it has long been a part of Seattle's history. As the only columbarium in downtown Seattle, the Queen Anne Columbarium has become a unique alternative for families who wish to honor the cremated remains of their loved ones in a serene, yet convenient, setting.

A major renovation in 1939 brought additional columbarium space directly over the original. Molding and trim reflect the careful creation of this special resting place. The woodwork throughout the columbarium displays skilled craftsmanship and adds a special touch in each room of niches.

"My aunt died in October and I was very close to her. You will never be ready for the death of a loved one, no matter how prepared you think you are. When the day comes, there will be things you didn't think about, and you will probably feel more overwhelmed than usual. When this day came for me, I was so glad that I chose to work with Nikala and K

endra at Butterworth. They both assisted my family and made sure that we were supported and cared for through this difficult process. My aunt's cremation was planned in advance, and that was financially very helpful, but I was still weighed down by grief. Nikala's gentle kindness made it easy for me to talk to her and decide how to honor my aunt, and although I was very sad, I'm grateful that this experience was so easy."

"Nikala is the perfect funeral director. She managed our needs at the death of my brother with compassion, kindness, intuition and competency. She provided the services and responses in a timely manner, and chose the perfect Celebrant for our traditional/contemporary graveside service. The facility is gorgeous and is filled with tradition. I would r

ecommend Butterworth and Nikala to anyone in need."

"I am very grateful a friend recommended your funeral home to me in the days before we needed it. When my father passed I was so thankful I had already spoken to your team and knew what to do and what we could expect. We were treated with kindness and respect from beginning to end, by all of your team, and we trusted that our departed was as well.

Thank you for making a difficult loss as easy as possible on our family. I will recommend you without reservation to anyone who finds themselves in this difficult space of need, knowing you'll receive them with courtesy and care."
