Whitten Funeral Home was established in 1937 by W.C. “Red” Whitten at the original location on Park Avenue in Lynchburg. In 1960, we added a 2nd location on Timberlake Road to meet the needs of a growing city. Eventually in 1982, Whitten opened our 3rd location in Madison Heights to serve residents in Amherst County. Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

"If you have any doubt about your loved one and the dignity desired as he or she is laid to rest, I can assure you that Whitten's will take excellent care of your every need. My direct connection was with Jonathan Bennett and I would highly recommend you meet with him and allow him to explain what is available regarding their facilities and the care that will be given to your loved one. We also used the Chapel for our service and there wasn't anything we desired to have in the way of videos, pictures, sound, etc., that wasn't first class and enabled us to give my mother a sweet send off to her eternal home.

"It was nice to deal with a funeral home that wanted to help me through the experience rather than putting the money first."
