Who Owns the Funeral Home?

If you are seeking burial or cremation services anywhere in the Kansas City area, one of the most important questions to ask is, “Who owns the funeral home?”.  The Amos Family Funeral Home & Crematory is proud to be a family owned funeral and cremation service.  We have been in Shawnee since 1946 and serve all of Johnson County, Wyandotte County, and the entire Kansas City area.  Recently, the DW Newcomers chapels were purchased by Service Corporation International (SCI), which is headquartered in Houston, TX.  SCI now owns the McGilley Chapels, Mt. Moriah, Chapel Hill Butler, and DW Newcomers along with a number of cemeteries. 

Most of us would prefer to do business with locally owned companies if we have the choice.  We like doing business with local companies because we know that the money we spend stays in our community.  We also know that the owners of these companies have a vested interest in the community.  They shop here, worship here, and educate their children here.  They are also directly accountable to their customers.

When the need arises, choosing a locally owned, family funeral home, is the best choice.  So be sure to ask this one simple question: Who owns the funeral home?
