Veteran Funeral Plan Benefits 

At Hamel-Lydon Chapel and Cremation Services of Massachusetts, we believe in providing the best services and resources to our community. Like our great nation, our company was founded by veterans, so we understand the hard work and sacrifice our men and women in the Armed Forces gave to this country. So many served our country right out of school, and afterward many had to forgo higher education in order to provide for their families. 

As a small reflection of our deep gratitude and commitment to those who serve, we offer five cost-savings plans designed to accommodate the needs of veterans and their families. 

UNDERSTANDING. We understand the challenges many vets face and have designed cremation and funeral plans for veterans and their spouses that offer special cost savings. 

EXPERIENCE. We are experienced in working with the state and VA benefits system and will apply for these benefits on your behalf. 

DELIVERY. We offer free delivery of cremated remains to the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, MA. 

Please call (617)472-5888 today to speak with a Funeral Counselor to learn more about Veteran Benefits.
