About Barton Family Funeral Service

Barton Family Funeral Service is founded on the belief that there is a better way to deal with death than the expensive offerings of the corporate funeral industry. We urge a return to traditional values, beliefs, and cultural practices that are affordable to families of the deceased. The growing trend toward personalized last rites is really just a return to the ways our ancestors faced the reality of death.


Steven Barton of Barton Funeral Services, Seattle funeral servicesSteven Barton is a 1992 graduate of the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science. Before moving to Seattle in 1997, he worked as a licensed embalmer and funeral director at family owned funeral homes in Pocatello, Idaho and St. George, Utah. Coming from a background where the local funeral directors knew the families they served, Steven is accustomed to a high standard of care where the needs of the families came first. After seven years at large corporate funeral providers in the Seattle area, he could no longer tolerate the relentless quest for profits that govern the corporate world. In 2004, he founded Barton Family Funeral Service to provide the kind of personal service that every family deserves.
