Why Choose Cremation Society of Virginia
The Cremation Society of Virginia was established to provide professional, compassionate services to the many Virginians who prefer the simple, dignified cremation and burial 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. As funeral costs continue to escalate, more people are turning to us as a dignified alternative to elaborate - and expensive - funeral services. Today, nearly 32% of Virginians choose cremation over burial. The Cremation Society was established to serve these individuals. Unlike most funeral directors, 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. Additionally, more and more churches are assisting their members with simple, meaningful funeral services. Whatever your reason for choosing cremation or simple burial, the Cremation Society of Virginia is here to assist you in your time of need.
