We at E. Alvin Small Funeral Homes & Crematory take great pride in caring for our families. While honoring your loved one is our top priority, we will work tirelessly in helping you through this difficult time and provide you a beautiful, lasting tribute to your loved one. As part of our services you will receive an online memorial which can be shared with family and friends. Our wide range of support resources are there for you not only at your time of need, but also in the weeks and months thereafter.Listed below are some of our many offerings. Please call us at 1-804-526-3400 so we can help you through this process.
We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes not only the obituary but also any photographs you wish to provide. It serves as a place for family, friends and acquaintances to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honor of your loved one.
We can produce a personal tribute video that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include, and we will transform them into a video celebration of your treasured memories. Individual DVDs or digital files of the video are available after the service.
We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one by partnering with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. This feature also allows you to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.
Sharing Service Details
We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one by posting the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.
Daily Grief Support Emails
We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.
