At Bauer Funeral Chapel, we have had the privilege of providing funeral and cremation services for families in Snohomish, Washington, since 1884. Located on First Street in downtown Snohomish, our funeral home serves a diverse and growing community from a wide array of religions, faiths, cultures, background and beliefs.

Personalized service

Every person is unique, and at Bauer Funeral Chapel, we believe that every life deserves to be honored and celebrated with the utmost level of care and respect. It is our underlying principle and belief—and is what has allowed us to grow and thrive for more than a century.

Catered receptions, floral assistance, celebrant services, video tribute programs, online obituary postings and a host of other products and services are readily available for you and your loved one. We work closely with Snohomish-area hospices and are a member of the We Honor Veterans program.

Committed to families

When you walk through our doors, our trusted associates take the time to carefully present all of the funeral and cremation options available so you can make the best decisions for you or your loved one. We ensure that you are totally satisfied with every decision you’ve made, and we will be there to follow up with you in the days following the service as part of our after-care program.

Plan for the future

If you wish to plan your final arrangements in advance, our associates are here to advise, either individually or as a group, on your various funeral and cremation options. We understand that funeral and cremation planning is a personal and long-lasting decision, and our dedicated associates provide trusted and professional guidance.

Originally known as the Bakeman Funeral Home, Bauer Funeral Home has been serving the Snohomish, Washington, community since 1884. Jerry Bauer took ownership of the funeral home in 1954, later passing it to his son, Michael Bauer, in 1978.

Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers and continue to serve the Snohomish community with the same high standards set forth by the Bauer family.
