Crematory


At Evans Funeral Home, we feel the addition of our new crematory is an investment in your trust. Many area funeral homes advertise that they offer "cremation services," although most subcontract this sensitive process to distant, off-site industrial crematories.

We are the only funeral home in the area with our own on-site crematory. We want you to feel comfortable in knowing that your loved one will never leave our facility and will be cared for only by our own employees. Each step of the cremation process will be handled with our state-of-the-art equipment and entirely on-site, to offer you and your family an invaluable piece of mind.

We’re here to answer your questions, and provide you with assurance that Evans Funeral Home is the most appropriate cremation provider for your family. Why? Because our state-of-the-art crematory is located on our grounds, which means that your loved one will:

  • Never leave our care: Ours is the only funeral home in the area to operate our own crematory on-site. From the moment your loved one comes into our care, they will be cared for by us— and only us.
  • Be cared for with dignity, under the highest standards: To assure your loved one is being cared for appropriately, we adhere to a strict procedure in every cremation process. Our state-of-the-art equipment is maintained at the highest possible standards and is environmentally safe.
  • Be cared for by certified cremationists and licensed Funeral Directors: Our staff performing the cremation will be licensed funeral directors or certified cremation specialist. We adhere to all state laws and code of ethics; an assurance to you of our commitment to dignity and honesty.
  • Have family and friends present : Many families are comforted to know that they can be a witness for their loved one. We offer a special viewing room located next to our crematory to facilitate those who wish to be present for the start of the cremation process.

The importance of having our own on-site crematory just can’t be overstated. It means there is no need for additional transportation charges or scheduling problems with another crematory facility. Our families who choose cremation can expect thorough privacy, convenience and respect since we have complete control in the handling of the entire cremation process.


Evans Funeral Home and Crematory does not offer funeral and cremation services for your pet. However, North Georgia Pet Cremations in Talmo is a respected part of our community. The owners, Jim, Bobby and Shirley Watkins, have been long-time friends and colleagues, and offer compassionate service during the difficult loss of a pet. www.ngapetcremations.com
