|Why we set up
DFS Memorials – a network of affordable cremation providers
We launched DFS Memorials
in 2012. Working together as a husband and wife team running US Funerals
Online, we realized the need for a way to help people locate a local, affordable
cremation or burial provider.
|We are witnessing
a major cultural shift where people no longer want to spend excessively
on elaborate funeral rituals. Also many people are struggling under
the burden of our poor economy, and simply cannot afford an elaborate funeral.
We believe that everyone should be able to arrange a simple & affordable
funeral, without worrying about the costs, or going into debt.
Communities – returning to ‘Mom & Pop’ values
We believe in supporting
the ‘local’ and wanted to help Mom & Pop funeral and cremation businesses
get an edge on the corporate funeral industry. Many corporate-owned
funeral homes prove to be significantly more expensive than their local
family-owned equivalents. We wanted to be able to quickly connect
people with their nearest family-owned low cost provider. Removing
all the hassle, and multiple phone calls to compare prices.
What is DFS Memorials?
