General Info

As the oldest continuously operated funeral home in Central Virginia, Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service has been supporting families in the area since 1870. The company is a Central Virginia leader of innovation by adopting new ideas into their funeral services. Instead of providing basic, cookie-cutter services for families, a personalized plan is designed for every funeral that is held. Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service is a green certified funeral home that provides a range of funeral and cremation services. Options include funerals, memorials, burials, life celebrations, pre-planning funeral services, urns, caskets, vaults, Veteran Services, Military Honors, grief resources, and more. The funeral home has a recently added Reception Room, with optional catering. The chapel has a seating capacity of more than 240 people. This funeral home offers more than basic funeral services. The staff is proud to be a Life Celebration Funeral Home, with each service designed around the life of the deceased. Services are as unique as the individual, designed around the persons favorite colors, food, poems, music, hobbies, and more. High-end video technology is always available for the services, including webcasting for family and friends who are not able to attend. Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service is the only funeral home in the area to provide video tributes at no charge for every family served. Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service serves the greater Richmond community, including Richmond, Chesterfield, Chester, Dale City, Midlothian, Bon Air, Winterpock, Amelia Courthouse, Colonial Heights, and Matoaca. The business was operated by the Morrissett family for generations.

Business History

In 1870, just after the end of the Civil War, B. H. Morrissett left his trade as a cabinetmaker and established what was to become the oldest continuously operated business in South Richmond. The Morrissett family served their community for generations, until 1969 when Esther Morrissett sold the company to Robert G. Danielson.

In 1998, the firm was acquired by two of its employees, Richard M. Booker and Laurence F. Spiaggi. On December 31, 2015, Dick Booker retired after 47 years service to our firm. Larry Spiaggi and his wife, Sue Danielson became the sole owners. Larry and Sue are keenly aware of the 136-year tradition of service they have inherited with this exceptional Richmond funeral home, and continue to dedicate themselves to deserving the trust and confidence of the families they serve.

We have a comprehensive selection of funeral packages to choose from. Cremation Services: Here at Morrissett, we offer cremation services for families as an alternative to funeral services. You may prefer a viewing prior to cremation, a memorial service, or no service at all. Afterwards, you may prefer scattering of the remains in a ground burial, or interment in a special niche where loved ones may later visit. We are here to help, and to explain the many choices you have with today's cremation traditions. There are some good reasons why you should consider preplanning. We welcome you to use our free Basic Planner that will take you less than five minutes to complete.
