The Smith Mountain Lake population is continuously growing as people from the general region build homes for weekend retreats, summers and retirement. Many residents have questions concerning funeral and cremation services along with costs. Seeing that those residents needed the convenience of a family-owned option that was close to home, the Smith Mountain Lake Arrangement Center opened its doors in 2002. Continuing with the history of local family ownership, our SML funeral home allows us to offer affordable and meaningful services at any church or local facility to the lake’s residents.
