What is a Direct Cremation?
Direct cremation is the term used when cremation service is provided without any additional services. If you’d like any additional services such as visitation or a memorial service, our funeral director will gladly review these options with you.

Why Choose Affinity Funeral Service
We are a family-owned firm. We do not outsource our cremations. We have a company owned crematory. We do not use a courier service to run our death certificates. We are not a cremation society or discount brand of a local full service funeral home.
Despite the fact that our prices are lower than traditional full service firms our service is not compromised. We believe in our price points and in serving all families the same regardless of the type of service selected.
At Affinity, when your family chooses cremation, you can trust that your loved one never leaves our care, and we will work with your family to ensure that your loved one is returned to you as soon as possible.
Direct Cremation Process and Timing
While every family we serve is different, we average a three to five-day turnaround of cremated remains. Delays can occur when death occurs on a weekend or holiday and the primary care physician’s office is not available to receive the death certificate for signature.
The State of Virginia requires that a few items be completed prior to the cremation taking place, including the Cremation Authorization Form, Signed Death Certificate, and the Medical Examiner/Coroner Examination.
“They went above and beyond our expectations and I will be forever grateful to them. I will wholeheartedly recommend Affinity to all my friends and family in the greater Richmond area who are looking for an outstanding alternative to the high priced funeral homes”
