The folks at Direct Cremation Services (especially Bill) were very helpful in our time of need. All matters were handled quickly, courteously, and with great empathy for our predicament. Highly recommend!

I am pleased the way the request for cremation for my partner was expedited, even though we had to work long-distance with the sister of the deceased. Everything was handled in a timely fashion and with courtesy, for which I am greatly appreciative. If/when the occasion arises, I will certainly recommend your service to others.

Cremation Services of Virginia took great care to provide thoughtful support and excellent, rapid service for me and my family. Every staff member was knowledgeable and considerate while guiding me through the correct steps to best manage an unfamiliar and challenging situation. I was very impressed with the company (and its clear website) from my first interaction to the last.

Bill went out of his way to help my family. The fact that it was a holiday did not bother him. The extras that I requested were taken care of with dignity and professionalism.
I pray that I do not need the services again, but if I do I will certainly use them.

I was so happy to find a service that was able to help my family during a very emotional time. We were received with empathy and respectfully educated in the process and services available when others were not so receptive. We felt that we got the best service for the cost involved.
