Storke Funeral Home is located near both Arlington National Cemetery and Quantico National Cemetery. We frequently have services at both cemeteries and are familiar with all the details surrounding eligibility and arranging funeral honors. For many years local families have trusted us with the burial services of many of our Nation’s heroes.
To be eligible for burial in Arlington National Cemetery is an honor reserved for a select few. Sometimes the process of arranging such a service can be intimidating. Because of our proximity and years of experience, many local families and out of town funeral homes have allowed us to assist them in making all these arrangements. This is an honor our staff takes seriously.
We stand ready to assist any out of town funeral home with all aspects of this important and sometimes daunting task. Funeral homes, around the country, trust Storke Funeral Home with handling these details. Services offered to out of town families and funeral homes include:
*Discounted charges to out of town funeral directors.
*Assistance with complicated eligibility and scheduling process.
*Receiving remains/cremains from any local airport.
*Sheltering remains until day of service (Arlington’s huge case load sometimes delays burial for weeks or months. We have the capability to respectfully shelter remains for any period of time).
*Hearse and experienced personnel for day of service.
Thank you and members of the Storke Funeral Home’s staff for your guidance and support in making the arrangements for our father’s full military honors burial on February 24, 2014 at Arlington National Cemetery ! From start to finish, your kind advice, reassurance and assistance in planning his funeral were greatly appreciated by our family. And, especially, in light of having to do this long distance, Storke Funeral Home’s attention to addressing every detail, and overall excellent services during this time of sadness and need, were comforting to all of us.
Again, many thanks!
Words cannot express how happy I am to have gotten to know David Storke and the fine folks at Storke Funeral Home. Recently we had two families who wanted their loved one buried at Arlington National Cemetery. One family wanted inurnment and the other a ground burial. Our funeral home is 518 miles from Arlington, and usually we would send a funeral director to take the body and attend the service. However, at this particular time the person in our organization who was familiar with Arlington was taking chemo treatments and could not make the trip. In somewhat of a panic, I searched the Internet for funeral homes near Arlington.
Once I found the website for Storke Funeral Home, I was relieved. I noticed they were family owned, as we are, and their website was very inviting to me. I immediately called the funeral home, and from that contact on, things went very smoothly. David Storke handled the arrangements for both of my families from receiving the body all the way through to interment at Arlington with absolute perfection. The family who accompanied Mr. Storke to Arlington had nothing but praise for him and the way he handled everything. On this end, I feel the same way. From the first conversation with David, I felt at ease. Whatever he said he would do, it was done! Of course, I would have preferred accompanying my family myself, but since I could not go, I felt that things were done just as I would have done them….possibly better.
I would definitely recommend Storke Funeral Home, and I am confident we will work together many times in the future.
