ROCKY MOUNT, VA – Victor Conner and Kevin Bowman are proud to announce the completion of their new 11,000-square-foot-facility at 62 Virginia Market Place Drive, Conner-Bowman Funeral Home and Crematory. Fulfilling a longtime dream, they now offer the community two locally owned and operated funeral homes.
“Having the largest and most modern facilities in Franklin County will allow us the flexibility to serve each family as if they were the only family we are serving at any given time. We offer the county’s first on-site crematory as well as the county’s largest chapel,” says Conner. “The good Lord is with us.”
The funeral home also boasts large spacious viewing rooms, a family room, family lounge, and children’s room. The design of the preparation room was entrusted to Duncan Stuart Todd, Ltd. to ensure that it would be equipped to the highest standards and be fully OSHA compliant. The funeral directors are very pleased with the two-station room full of features designed for comfort and convenience such as foot pedal water control units and custom designed cabinets with shallow drawers.
As new owners, Conner and Bowman also renovated their original funeral home at 140 Floyd Avenue, Lynch Conner Bowman Funeral Home with everything conveniently located on the first floor. In addition to a full selection room, families may view caskets and vaults via the Family Advisor System from Aurora Casket Company. The partners retained the name of Lynch for History’s sake.
Both locations are operated as one funeral home with 25 dedicated associates offering the same professional service at both locations. They are members of National Funeral Directors Association, Virginia Funeral Directors Association, Cremation Association of North America, and the Independent Funeral Homes of Virginia.
