Respectful. Professional. Compassionate.
A Tradition of Trust
Compassionate Cremation Services not only understands the importance of caring for a loved one after they have passed away, but also the care and comfort of the family left behind. At Compassionate Cremations, we help you achieve those together by offering a low-cost cremation service by not having our families pay for unnecessary overhead costs that are charged at full service funeral homes, while still providing them with the professional and caring service they deserve.
Our funeral service is a local, family-owned business that truly cares for the families they serve. Our staff are all Virginia licensed funeral professionals with over 30 years of experience. Our hospitality and accommodating arrangement process will help keep our families at ease and will prove why we are one of the best low-cost cremation companies in the Albemarle, Charlottesville, Culpeper, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, and surrounding areas.
Simplicity and affordability
While full service funeral homes still offer a direct cremation option, families are having to pay more than twice the amount for a simple cremation. The reason for this is they have much more overhead costs such as the large facilities, the salaries of the entire staff, full fleet of vehicles, and higher insurance costs, even though you are not utilizing them.
With Compassionate Cremation Services, we are honored to provide your family with the same quality care, without having the higher financial hardship. Your family is only charged for the items and services you need and personally request.
Woman Owned & operated/ family run business
When choosing a funeral home, it is important to ask whether they are family owned or corporate.
Corporate funeral homes frequently have sales quotas to meet, therefore, you will sense a lot of pressure to purchase a more expensive package or be charged for things you do not need.
Local, family owned funeral homes have deeper roots in the community and our family was born, raised, and live in the local area.
