$$$ vs $$$$ NOTE :
Cremation in the DFW area is mostly a wholesale business.
There are approximately 20 crematories in the DFW area, with well over 200 funeral homes using those approximately 20 crematories.
So cremation process locations are limited on the "back side" ; pricing is the big difference in what you get for your money. All crematories are inspected and must follow state guidelines regardless of retail pricing.
