Creative funerals, memorials
We begin by listening. Inspire us with the elements that set an individual apart—a life-long hobby, favorite genre of music or collection of artwork—and our talented team of funeral directors will help create a memorial service that best reflects individualism.
Imagine a catered buffet featuring a secret family recipe, or a masquerade affair where everyone wears the favorite color of the person they celebrate. Whatever you envision, Nelsen Williamsburg has the flexible reception space and creative resources to fulfill almost any final wish.
Burial, cremation options
Whether you prefer a traditional religious ceremony or burial with military honors, we stand ready to guide you through the range of burial options available. We offer cremation services with optional interment of remains to those who prefer an alternative. Our chapel adapts to accommodate celebrants of all faiths and traditions, and our team welcomes guests before and after each service.
We Honor Veterans
At Nelsen Williamsburg, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Four Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we are honored to serve our nation’s heroes and take this responsibility seriously. We have taken steps to ensure our staff is knowledgeable of all the benefits available to military veterans and their families.
In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

Nelsen Williamsburg serves families from Lightfoot to Jamestown Settlement in a tradition dating to 1892. Over the course of a century, generations of central Virginia families have come to trust us to provide burial arrangements that suit their desires and needs with personalized attention to detail.
Today, we continue to provide traditional funeral arrangements while embracing the shift to contemporary and upbeat memorial celebrations.
