Lydon’s commitment to serving just one family at a time ensures that your family will receive exclusive use of our entire historic chapel building for your loved one’s arrangements. The oldest funeral home in Quincy, Lydon Chapel dates back to the 18th century, when our home was built as a wedding present for a young woman by her father. Our home’s lovely waterfall has even become a local landmark, with many residents specifically requesting that their final arrangements include a service “at the funeral home with the waterfall.”
