The foyer area allows for additional standing room if required and TV monitors allow visibility for all attending.
Your Local Chapel
Featuring prominently on the corner of the Princes Highway and Unara Road, the H.Parsons Dapto chapel has been your local funeral home since 2004. Our Dapto chapel is well situated to support families from the local Dapto, Horsley, Albion Park, Kanahooka, Kembla Grange, and Unanderra areas, and we are proud to continue to serve the local community.
Our chapel is staffed Monday to Friday with a Justice of the Peace who can assist you with any related services, though we do ask that you phone ahead to check if a funeral service is being held. Our staff can also assist you with any pre-planning of a funeral service.
Seating for 160
The chapel can comfortably seat approximately 160 people, with extra standing space in the foyer, catering area, and outside of the main entrance. Each location area of the funeral home is prepared with an audio-visual system, apart from outside of the main entrance which can be equipped on request, that allows attendees to view and hear the full service.
The Dapto chapel is the largest in the H.Parsons group. For smaller services, the main chapel curtains can be drawn to create an intimate atmosphere for the funeral service. Regardless of the size of the service, the H.Parsons Dapto chapel can accommodate.
