The Whitten family of funeral homes has served the greater Lynchburg area for more than 80 years. 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.
