History

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.

"The staff at Whitten's was pleasant to work with, made us feel comfortable, was willing to meet our needs at any time, and was very supportive during our loss. My family's experience with Whitten's Funeral Home has always been exceptional, the staff is always professional and shows compassion to families. Do not put my name if posted. Thanks"

"Our Mother had made her arrangements many years ago. We are so thankful she made them with Whittens. Paul Whitten was our funeral Director, and went beyond what was expected of him. He was professional, yet personal. There is nothing we can think of that we would have wanted done differently. Each staff member involved was very kind, friendly, and helpful. We highly recommend Whittens Funeral Homes."
