Evans Cremation Services began primarily to fill the need of funeral homes wishing to provide cremation services for their families. The majority of funeral homes in this area, as well as across the United States, utilize an independent service to perform cremations. Most funeral homes do not have the facilities or the specialized staff to perform the tasks cremation requires.
