We Honor Veterans
At Woody Funeral Home-Parham, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families.

With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.
Born in Richmond, Virginia, shortly after the conclusion of the Civil War, Henry W. Woody lived all his life in the city and established the Woody Funeral Home near Historic St. John’s Church in 1905. Due largely to his reputation of professionalism and integrity, the business outgrew the original facility and a new, more modern building was built at 25th Street and Jefferson Avenue in 1916.
Woody Funeral Home was moved to Laburnum Avenue in 1966 and opened as Richmond’s first garden-type funeral home. Since 1966, 3 additional locations have opened. Woody Funeral Home-Parham includes a crematory, which serves all of our locations and was the first in Richmond to be associated with a funeral home.
Mr. Woody began our company with a commitment to a high standard of service excellence, and throughout our history, we have continued to lead and innovate while maintaining those high standards of service. The staff at Woody Funeral Home-Parham is proud to uphold this heritage and continued commitment to our community.
