History

Considered the longest continuously operating business in West Seattle, Forest Lawn Cemetery has served families since 1902. In the early 1980s, Forest Lawn Funeral Home opened to better serve the West Seattle community. The facility closed shortly thereafter and reopened in 1995. In 2002, we merged with West Home Funeral Chapel in West Seattle. Today, both the funeral home and cemetery are members of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers and create personalized tributes to celebrate those who shape our community each day.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Absolutely a personal experience. Felt like I was friends with the funeral director that helped me set everything up. I had called several places at 11 pm when my mom passed away and when I called here, Cassandra made me feel like my mom was going to be taking care of with love and help with any worries I had. I felt like a friend was taking care of my mom from picking up my mom from her residence to the cremation. Absolutely will refer a friend when needed."

"Forest Lawn staff were wonderful to work with during this very difficult time. They made arrangements, kept us informed of every action and step that was taken. They gave advise that was so welcome during a time when making some decisions became so difficult. During a period of grief the staff at Forest Lawn made sure that they did not add to the grief but gave support, compassion, suggestions and, I have to say, love to us. Thank you."
