Welcome to the new home page for Riffe's Funeral Service, Inc.  We are located in scenic Giles County, nestled in the mountains of Southwest Virginia near the banks of the majestic New River, offering a variety of funeral and cremation services. 

From humble beginnings in 1932 and through three generations since, our family and staff have worked long and hard to care for the families of Southwest Virginia and Southern West Virginia, at the absolute lowest time in their lives with dignity, class and compassion.

These days, families are more value-conscious than ever, even more so during the loss of a loved one.  That's why Riffe's Funeral Service truly is the better value during your time of need.  Here's why.

We have the largest visitation and funeral facilities in Giles County (over 10,000 square feet across three adjoining buildings, to be exact).  That means plenty of room for family and friends to gather and honor the life of their loved one.

In addition, Riffe's Funeral Service offers a better way to choose caskets, outer burial containers, cremation urns and other merchandise using our "Family Advisor" selection system.  That means less stress and anxiety in picking out funeral goods and services, as opposed to walking through a room full of displays.

It has been our privilege to offer dignified, meaningful tributes, at an affordable cost in an environment that offers spacious comfort, compassion and convenience.  And this new website is but one way that we can share with you information to help you prepare to celebrate the life of your loved one.  Should you have any questions, we'd love to help you!  Feel free to give us a call or drop us a line via e-mail.  Our contact information can be found at the bottom of the screen.

An important message to our families and friends:
 
Effective July 1, 2013, Virginia's Sales and Use Tax Rate increased from 5% to 5.3% for our region of the state.
 
It is important to remember that this tax rate is for merchandise ONLY (caskets, outer burial containers, cremation urns, urn vaults, register books, memorial folders, temporary grave markers and acknowledgement cards).  Keep in mind that Virginia-based funeral homes DO NOT charge sales tax for professional services, facilities, transportation, or cash advances (obituaries, certified copies of death certificates, honorariums, grave openings or crematory charges). 

This is in contrast to our colleagues across the state line in West Virginia, who are required by their laws to assess at least at 6% sales tax on BOTH services and merchandise, to the families that they serve. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.  We'd be glad to explain it further!
