Choices, Options and Family Preferences


We at the Evans Funeral Home and Cremation Services believe a family should be allowed to make the choices that will best provide what fits their need.  Whether it be a religious, social, or financial consideration, a family should be able to make the decision that best suits their need.


Trends in the way people take care of their loved one's final arrangements are constantly changing, and we at EVANS FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICES are  aware of these changes.  If a family and/or their loved one wants traditional services, then we at EVANS will try and help them accomplish their and/or their loved one's wishes.  If something that strays far away from 'tradition' is requested, then we will work hard to do what ever is needed to see that a family is satisfied with their choices.

Evans Funeral Home and Cremation Services at Chapmanville was founded in 1975 by Riley Joe Evans.  At the time of its founding, there was no funeral home serving the town and surrounding area. Riley Joe is still owner and operator of the funeral home and is involved in the day to day operations.


In 1988 a state of the art chapel and other additions were added to the existing building.  The chapel, which will hold 350 people, is still in use today. In 1997 a second chapel was added, along with other improvements, that will seat around 200.


In 2007, the funeral home was able to add a crematory retort to handle the changing trends in families wishes.  Since that time a second retort was added to handle the increased request of cremation by a growing number of families.
