US Funerals Online
An important omission, though, is that Oregon law does not give unmarried couples the same rights with regard to disposition of remains as to married couples. ORS 97.130 does, however, provide (pursuant to sections (2) and (7)) that the unmarried partner may be granted the right of disposition through a written instrument.
This is inaccurate. Oregon allows individuals to act as their own funeral service practitioner. It's just an uncommon practice, not illegal.
