Our Services

Tharp Funeral Home, Smith Mountain Lake LocationAt our family-owned funeral homes, we are committed to providing you and your family with an unparalleled level of service and attention to detail. We will listen to you and assist you in creating exactly the services that you desire.

Our emphasis is on personalizing the funeral service so that it reflects the uniqueness and individuality of the deceased. Each person, each life, and each family reflects its own characteristics and we want to help you celebrate and share those qualities with friends and relatives.

In addition to our highly personalized service, we consistently go the extra mile for our families by offering little extras such as a memorial tribute DVD that follows your loved one on a photographic journey of their life as well as a DVD of the funeral service. At Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, we believe in choices, flexibility, and in exceeding expectations.
