Recent Testimonials for This Location:

Liz was very professional and sincere. She made us very comfortable during a very hard time. I never felt rushed during the process nor pushed to buy something we didn't need. We purchased many pieces of jewelry and we were very pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend Liz and the Cremation Society.

I have to say the staff could not have been kinder and understanding. They handled everything so efficiently and professionally. They took care of my step dad’s and most recently, my mother’s cremation. I would highly recommend them.

The entire process with the Cremation Society of Virginia was seamless & Ronnie Elder went above and beyond expectations and we will be forever grateful for all of his assistance during this difficult time!

My husband, age 67, died suddenly. The only bright spot was my experience at the Cremation Society of Virginia.  Christopher Eckard was most personable and made at least this part of a terrible experience bearable.  He handled everything as promised and at a reasonable price.

Mr. Ronnie Elder..has made our Unexpected Life-Changing event to myself and my family as comforting and peaceful as possible. With me and my siblings losing both our parents within 6 months of each other, We feel we had someone representing us that cares and listens to each and every detail so well. His professionalism, respect, and attention to detail were beyond and above our expectations. We are forever grateful for choosing such a wonderful person that words are just not enough to explain our gratitude. Thank you.The Neverson/Jefferson Family

Callaghan Derringer did an exceptional job handling my mother's loss after a small problem we had. She and her funeral director in the Richmond, VA office absolutely were kind and caring and exceptionally professional and all paperwork was done correctly and in a timely manner. They also provided something extra that I requested and that was so special. I will recommend them to anyone who needs exceptional service at a very difficult time. Many thanks.

When my mother was on hospice care, the nurse suggested using CSV because Mom only wanted to be cremated and didn't want to use anything else at a funeral home. The folks at CSV were so gentle over the phone, and later when they showed up at my home at 5 AM to pick up my deceased mother. They treated her body with compassion and handled her as if she were living.

Ronnie Elder and his staff were very caring every step of the way, even contacting me after I’d picked up her cremains and death certificates, just to offer my condolences and an offer of any further assistance if needed. Thank you to CSV for making such a trying time go easier on our family.

I live in Florida, my mother passed away in Virginia and her ashes were to be buried in N.Y. This required tri-state coordination and a timely delivery of services. Bobbi Jo Dymacek, the Funeral Director at the Richmond office, handled everything professionally and perfectly. We were able to conduct most of the required paperwork through emails and document scans, which was a great help to me, being out-of-state. Bobbi Jo kept me informed throughout each step of the process, and she went above and beyond when there was a snag (not caused by CSV) with my mother's death certificates. In... Read More

I consider the Richmond CSV team to be a blessing to our family during this difficult time. I honestly and sincerely appreciate all they did for us and the excellent customer service they provided.

My adult son passed away unexpectantly last month. I wasn’t prepared for this to happen and was at a loss as what to do. In searching for information on cremation, I googled online cremation in Richmond, VA. Following I made a connection with Kristan Sivells who was totally incredible in how she worked with me from the beginning to the end of my first time ever experience with cremation. This person was so kind, compassionate, caring and helpful in every decision I had to make and every question that I had. She was never too busy to answer questions and... Read More

Many years ago my husband and I decided on cremation. Although he has had several major health issues over the years, this final event was so unexpected. I called for an appointment and met with Kristan Sivells. She was my saving grace, she led me through the process, what to expect and when. At that point, we were pre-planning. Little did I know within days we would finalize and process his remains. Kristan kept me in the know each step of the way, I put it all in her hands with no hesitation.

My moms wish was to be cremated and when she passed away unexpectedly on July 13th I was devastated. However, a friend of mine had told me that she used Va Cremation Services for her brother. From the moment I made the first phone to them to when I received her ashes this past Monday I have been treated with such compassion and care. Bobbi Jo was an absolute pleasure to work with and all of the staff who work in the Richmond, VA location are equally as kind. I would suggest to them and their services to anyone. A... Read More

The loss of my husband’s mother was very unexpected. From the moment I called until I picked up her ashes. Kristan was first and foremost compassionate, as well as kind, respectful and thoughtful. In this time of grief, she was a blessing.

Veronica was very professional in handling my niece for my brother. We were from out of town and only had 1 day to take care of the paperwork. She took care of everything for us over the phone that she possibly could. All we had to do was come in, pick out the urn sign the papers and give them a check. They made sure we were comfortable while we were there. I would highly recommend Cremation Society of Virginia. Thanks again Veronica for your professionalism.

Had my dad cremated here recently and it was a bit of a process but everyone was nice and helpful as law of Virginia allows.

A dear friend's ceremony was held here. The staff was wonderful, the interior was beautiful and respectful. It was a wonderful way to say goodbye to a dear friend. The area was carpeted, clean and warm. The interior was beautiful. I feel at peace that my 30-year-old friend was sent off beautifully.
