Trust the First Cremation Society Founded in Virginia

Cremation Society of Virginia was established in 1996 to provide professional, compassionate services to the many Virginians who prefer simple, dignified cremation services. We are licensed by the Virginia Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers, and, unlike most funeral homes, we own and operate our own crematory.

Is Cremation Right For Me?

As funeral costs continue to rise, more people are turning to us as a dignified alternative to elaborate – and expensive – funeral services. As of 2022, 51.2% of Virginians are choosing cremation over burial, according to the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA). The Cremation Society of Virginia was established to serve these individuals. Our licensed staff members specialize in cremation. Members of the Cremation Society of Virginia are offered cremation, urns, caskets, and memorial and funeral services at costs significantly less than those at funeral homes. We do not sell high-priced caskets or operate lavish facilities, so our members are not pressured to buy services or merchandise they do not need.

Cremation is increasingly common throughout the United States and has become the preferred method of disposition in industrialized nations world-wide. Reasons for choosing cremation vary from religious, ecological, or cost concerns to personal preference. Whatever your reason for choosing cremation, the Cremation Society of Virginia is here to assist you in your time of need. Contact us today to receive a free cremation answer book and price quote.
