Directory of Northern Virginia funeral homes, crematories, cemeteries, and memorial designers.
Finding all options for funerals and burial in the Northern Virginia region is not easy, because phone books are not as comprehensive as they used to be, and not every firm in every area will tend to show up when you search on the Web. This list may save time if you are looking for these types of services.
Phone calls should be a key part of this process. The first round of calls will usually be to the funeral homes/crematories to get prices, and if you are selecting burial of course you will talk to someone at the cemetery. Some companies do have detailed prices and services listed at their Web sites, which can be very helpful for narrowing down the choices, while others only provide the information by telephone. But in every case, plan to speak to someone at the firm to get the final word on what they provide, and what they charge, before you make a decision.
Nearly all funeral homes now offer cremation. In addition to how much it costs, you should ask 1) whether they perform the service themselves or subcontract it out, 2) if it is possible to see the facility, and 3) if it would be possible to witness the beginning of the cremation process (there is usually a fee). Even if you aren’t interested in seeing this, knowing it is allowed can alleviate concerns about the operation. Some third-party crematories are not set up to allow witnessing, but most firms that perform their own cremations will allow it.
Funeral homes can provide a wide variety of services, so ask about any and all aspects of the final arrangements when you call. They usually offer cremation (and the price can vary tremendously), and they may be able to tell you about cemeteries that you could not easily find on your own (and are not on our list below). Also, if you want a simplified ceremony, some progressive funeral directors can help you save money and hold a service that is meaningful to the survivors. This is why calling several firms to comparison shop is so important.
For cremation, distance should not matter. You can sometimes save thousands of dollars simply by choosing a provider a few miles away. In fact, 30 or more miles out of the way is not unheard of. Even if a company has to charge a small fee for transportation, you can often recoup that charge many times over on a less expensive cremation process. Don’t hesitate to cast a wide net around Northern Virginia.
You can use the arrows at the top of the columns to sort the list, and also save the list in a variety of formats.
