We rely on you to do some of the work that a funeral director would normally do. Completion of the paper work specifically. The forms are computer generated saving a significant amount of time. By keeping the VCS Direct Cremation package standard it allows us to keep in stock only those items that will be needed to provide that service to you.
When death occurs, Virginia Cremation Services personnel are available to assist you at any hour, seven days a week. Please call Fredericksburg (540) 891-6272 or Culpeper (540)317-1236 for assistance. If the death has occurred out of hospital care or hospice care the local authorities need to be notified. If you haven’t made pre arrangements we would ask you to go to our web site and complete the arrangement forms by clicking on “A Death has Occurred”
