À propos 

At Nelsen Funeral Home and Crematory in Richmond, Virginia, we believe a special individual deserves an exceptional memorial tribute. Our professional funeral directors specialize in transforming life's triumphs into an unforgettable memorial service for all to treasure.

Create your ideal tribute

Reception room at Nelsen RichmondLet’s start with a story. Paint us a picture of a personality—a person’s passions, pursuits and unmistakable traits—and we will create a custom memorial tribute that speaks to their best moments. Imagine a live jam session held in honor of your family’s most avid guitarist, with set performances by special guests and keepsake monogrammed guitar picks to pass down for generations. Envision a showcase of your family's green thumb’s handiwork, with her favorite flowering plants on display in our spacious stateroom and packets of seeds for guests to grow in remembrance. With our resources and your imagination, the possibilities are almost as unlimited as the personalities we serve.

Whether you select a traditional funeral service or a contemporary celebration of life, we help you select from the range of options available to create a fitting service. Military funerals with military honors commemorate a commitment to our nation. For those who choose cremation, we offer viewing beforehand and can coordinate with the cemetery of your choice for optional burial of cremated remains.

From music to decor, consider it handled. Professional caterers prepare and serve your favorite foods, so you can spend more time with those who matter most. We warmly receive guests at our interfaith chapel before and after each service. When you need peace of mind or guidance, count on Nelsen Funeral Home and Crematory.

"Everyone at Nelsen went out of his or her way to provide top of the line service. More importantly, at a time like this their understanding, compassion and heartfelt concern for people and every aspect of the process was outstanding. To the people at Nelsen Funeral Home, it is obvious that it is a 'calling' and not a job."
