Our Family Serving Your Family Since 1854.

Family Owned and Operated....It makes a difference.  W.J. Smith & Son Funeral Home was established by our family in 1854.  We are the oldest family owned and operated business in the Tidewater Peninsula area.  Our funeral home spans six generations and represents our family's commitment for over 160 years to the community that we live in and serve.

We are dedicated to serving your family with care and compassion in your time of need while honoring the life and memories of the ones you love.  We are a full service funeral home offering advance pre-need planning, traditional and contemporary services, memorial services, military services, cremation, monuments and memorials.  We care about what you are going through and are available to help you at any time.  Who could serve your family better in your greatest time of need than your own neighbors.
