Our History

Our History

In the latter part of 1998, the idea of bringing inexpensive cremation services to the Dallas area was conceived by

Wesley and Jan Phillips. In January 1999, Wesley, and Jan opened the North Texas Cremation Society on Midway Road in Addison, Texas. The initial price for a Simple Cremation was $345.00. In their first year, they served 75 families. The following year, they served over 300 families. Wesley, and Jan paved the way to bring low cost cremation to the North Texas area.

In 2008, Bradley Sutton acquired the North Texas Cremation Society, and continues to serve families across the North Texas region under the North Central Texas Cremation and Funeral Services, LLC. name.

Since 1999 we have helped thousands of families navigate the difficult avenues of planning funeral and cremation services.
