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.

"From the initial contact with Whitten's and throughout the service and burial, I felt completely at ease knowing that Paul and his staff were taking care of the details to make our experience as meaningful and loving as possible. As a result, I know of three families that has decided to changed previous intentions and will use Whiitten's whenever t

hey need funeral services."
