Cremation Society of Virginia: Charlottesville, VA

Cremation Society of Virginia’s Charlottesville office provides prepaid and at-need cremation services for families and individuals in the Charlottesville area. Our sensitive and caring staff provides counseling and cremation planning to help you choose the cremation and funeral services that are right for you, your family, and your loved ones.

Cremation is an increasingly popular option that offers a cost-effective and environmentally sensitive way to remember your loved ones at a fraction of the cost of a typical funeral and memorial service. Prepaid cremation services take these advantages one step further, allowing you to choose the cremation and memorial services you want before you have a need.

With preplanned cremation, you can take control of how you will be remembered. It saves your family the time and expense of handling these difficult details after your passing. Plan today to give your family the gift of remembering you without having to wonder how they will pay for and plan your cremation and memorial services.
