Traditional Funeral Services
Traditional funeral usually consists of three key components: the visitation, the funeral service, and the committal service at the cemetery. The visitation is usually held at the funeral home on the night preceding the funeral, and the funeral service may be held at a church or in the funeral home chapel, and the committal is held at a preferred cemetery of choice of the bereaved family.
We customize your funeral arrangements to suit the needs of you and your family. During the arrangement our Funeral Directors go into detail on how we can make this burial and bereavement process as easy and stress free as possible.
The different kind of custom funerals we setup for clients/families are Military Honors, Traditional Funerals, immediate burials, cremation and service, Masonary, Eastern Star, amongst other services alike.
Today, many families are choosing cremation when a loved one passes away. Cremation offers a variety of options to families who are anticipating the death of a loved one or are faced with a death that has already occurred. At Ronald Taylor II Funeral Homes we help families understand cremation and the simplicity it provides. Through our webpage and other media outlets, you can build a complete portrait of your Family Member with an online tribute. Create a collection of stories from friends and loved ones. Add enduring images - photos, videos and music to be enjoyed and shared for generations to come. These memories created helps create some closure for the deceased family members since there is no interment for the deceased.
Cremation may follow a funeral service or occur before a memorial service. Families can decide whether to have a traditional casket service else where before cremation. Conversely, a family may want to proceed with cremation and then hold a memorial service during which the urn is placed on a table display. The urn is often accompanied by a picture of the departed and a spray of flowers.

No one wants to think about the time when he or she dies. However, if you do not make arrangements ahead of time, someone else will decide where you will be buried and how much of your estate will be spent. This person will most likely be a grieving member of your immediate family, and most people in this situation overspend, mistakenly equating a higher cost with greater love for the departed. By acting now, you can lighten your familys burden when that time comes. Pre-planning your cemetery arrangements – with your head and not your heart – is an act of love that provides several financial and emotional benefits to your family, not to mention your own satisfaction in knowing that your wishes will be carried out to your personal specifications.
Benefits of Pre-Planning
This funeral home is the best compared to other funeral homes in the DMV area.They are affordable, professional, personable and will work with your budget to give your loved one a respectable funeral. I was very impressed with their presentation and pricing, as well as their flexibility and follow-up to make sure everything ran smoothly. They will go above and beyond to make sure you are pleased with their service. I highly recommend Taylor Funeral Home and our family will continue to use them in the future.
Cannot say enough about how ethical this funeral home is. Two funeral homes tried to scam us during our sad time. Not Taylor's. Taylor's went ABOVE and BEYOND.We had an unusual country funeral about ninety miles west of their funeral home. My mother-in-law died in a D.C. hospital, so she had to be transported from D.C. to Luray, Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley. Taylor's Funeral Home gave us a very good price for the entire arrangement. Bishop Taylor and his staff were always so pleasant and professional to work with. When they came out to Shenandoah Valley, they even helped out with some things they were not contractually obligated to help with (at least according to one funeral home that wanted us to pay so much more). Our friends who attended the funeral remarked how nice the people from Taylor's Funeral Home were, and some of them even wrote down their company name. Our friends were also impressed that they were willing to drive so far. You can trust these people. They will deliver more than they promise. They treat you kindly, honestly, and with dignity as you step through each difficult decision. The people at Taylor's helped us so much through a very difficult time. We trust them implicitly. We are going to recommend them to everyone everywhere, whenever we can.
On behalf of my family, the service provided by the Ronald Taylor II Funeral Home was superb.Their care, attention to detail, and professionalism made the "home going" experience as stress free and beautiful as possible. My sister was an elegant and gracious woman and the services provided reflected her essence. I would highly recommend the Ronald Taylor II Funeral Home.
