Specializing in inexpensive simple cremations and burial arrangements, ABC serves families on the Oregon Coast,Tillamook, Lincoln, Benton, Polk, Yamhill and Western Lane Counties.

While other funeral homes are required to transport to a third party crematory operator, and have little control over when the cremation takes place or when the ashes are returned to you, Affordable Burial and Cremation can assure no out of town transport costs by performing onsite cremations. With certified crematory operators, Affordable Burial and Cremation assures the highest possible standards right here in the Lincoln County community.

From choosing an urn or casket, to deciding on headstones or memorial flowers, their funeral directors provide individualized services designed to meet the needs of each family's budget, with no hidden fees. At Affordable Burial and Cremation, they believe that every life deserves to be celebrated and honored regardless of price point. A memorial or funeral service should be a time to pay tribute and celebrate one's life at the same time. Each person has lived their own life individually and each person's funeral or memorial service can and should reflect that. When properly and appropriately designed, a personalized funeral or memorial service is a very meaningful and powerful experience.
