oward Funeral Home was created on one simple principle.
Since 1926 the Howard family has been dedicated to serving Gloucester County and the Surrounding Areas. Our family has been dedicated to providing the most meaningful services of Celebration and Remembrance for over 84 years. During this time we have learned one thing. People are all the same, "When there is a time of need; Compassion and Professionalism must Unite in order to achieve Excellence".
This site has been designed to be one of the the most comprehensive Funeral Service Resources in the area. We believe that an informed consumer not only makes more sensible choices, but also experiences less regrets. Each section contains consumer friendly information and is presented in an easy to understand format. Unlike most funeral homes we are not afraid to list prices and will give full explanations to any questions asked. Please look at each section in detail and feel free to call, email or come by. Below we give an overview of a few sections.
**OBITUARIES, VIDEO TRIBUTES & MEMORIAL WEBSITE**
"Technology working to create a meaningful personalized memorial."
We believe that memories are one of the most important treasures that we share with family and friends. Memories such as: “The Baby’s First Steps”, “That Special Birthday Party”, “Wedding Day”, “The Family Cookout”, “Christmas Day”, or maybe just, “Sitting Alone Reflecting”. Each of these events are a part of our everyday life; having its’ own meaning and creating that special emotion deep within our souls. Capturing these memories helps to preserve your loved ones’ life story for current and future generations, helping to continue your families’ legacy. Using today’s technology, we have developed a way to help everyone share these precious memories with family and friends locally and around the world. Video Tributes are a wonderful way to keep these memories of your loved one. A Video Tribute is a video that includes a collage of photographs and captions that are displayed with background music. We create these Video Tributes from memories and photographs provided by families and friends. Howard Funeral Home in conjunction with the M.E. Fisher Funeral Home, Inc. creates these Video Tributes to honor the life of your loved one at no cost to our client families. We feel that every Life is important and worth Honoring. Not only is a Video Tribute a memorable keepsake, it also provides friends and family the opportunity to view the tribute on our website or at the funeral home; allowing everyone to share these experiences. Included with the online Tribute is an actual Personalized Memorial Website. Please take advantage of these specialized free offerings. **To access the Video Tributes, first click the Obituaries link, then select the obituary of your choice. Once this page has been displayed, click on the View Video Tribute link. This will automatically deliver you to your Personalized Memorial Website of your loved one.

It allows the user to decide all service details, give vital statistic information and even pick merchandise from the comfort of your choosing. All signatures and payments must be done in person.
*GRIEF SUPPORT & SHOPS* Online Grief Support Resources Grief is as individualized as the person who is experiencing it. Sometimes we don’t know what to say or who to contact. This section offers some online resources that can help. We are in no way saying this is the answer, but it can be a starting point. We hope that it helps. Along with this the shops page offers some resources which can be purchased.
Online resources here we give you direct links to The Department of Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration, Virginia Department of Health, Federal Trade Commission, DMV and many others. We have also given you access to our vendors and a few other interesting organizations. We trust that we will meet or exceed your expectations and will continue to earn your trust now and in the future.
