The popularity of Cremation as a final manner of disposition has continued to grow in the United States for the past 30 years. Although most choose to honor a life with calling hours and a funeral service prior to Cremation, many families choose the option for a memorial service following Cremation, and a few choose immediate Cremation. Cremation, in the past and still today, has been selected as a less expensive choice to burial. From the beginning, most funeral service providers have provided this service at a cost far below actual expense, relying on families who choose burial to cover the losses. Today Cremation costs remain one-third to one-half the cost of a "traditional" funeral service and burial. Dapson-Chestney Funeral Home will provide Cremation services to meet individual needs upon request.
