The Bliley Difference


Blileys has been in business for almost 140 years in large part by focusing on two areas:

  • Celebrating every life with honor and respect, and
  • Serving every family with thoughtful care and compassion.

This commitment is the cornerstone of what we do and how we have chosen to serve others in time of need. It is the very definition of who we are.

Over a Century of Expertise: In 1874, founder Joseph W. Bliley, Sr., and his two brothers, John and Frank, formally established what has become a family tradition of serving the community by providing compassionate care and unparalleled service.

Superior standards: We at Bliley’s adhere to the highest funeral industry standards. We are committed to excellence.

On-site Cremation Center: Having our own crematory means your loved one never leaves our care.  Located at our Hull Street facility, Blileys Cremation Center offers the ideal environment for those who choose cremation.

Locations From Which to Choose: We offer convenient locations throughout the Richmond area. Our beautiful facilities were designed to provide a sense of warmth, peace, serenity and closure.

Personalized services: Our caring professionals will listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that are comforting and full of meaning.

Catered receptions:  Receptions in one of our warm, inviting reception rooms have been the setting for countless gatherings where friends and family have laughed, cried, reminisced and started the healing process together. We offer customized catering services for any size group, from simple deli delights to elaborate Italian buffets.

Exceptional staff: We have carefully chosen each member of our staff to ensure that our families receive the most professional, compassionate care. Combined our staff offers well over 750 years of experience.

Family owned and operated: In this region, which is dominated by huge chains and multinational conglomerates, we proudly remain independent and family owned. We are accountable to you, not to stockholders.

Serving all faiths and cultures: We care for families of all faiths and cultures, and are able to assist those without a spiritual leader.

Support after the ceremony: We have a full time staff member dedicated to supporting families after the loss of a loved one.  He can assist your family with any details that may need to be addressed after the service.
