Why Money & King

Homepage Banner

Founded in 1881 by Howard A. Money, then continued on by grandson Francis Howard King and his descendants until recent years, Money & King retains the original family names to reflect the long history and commitment to local ownership. Money & King Funeral Home and Cremation Services is still family owned and operated by Robert and Donnia Carmical who continue helping families on a daily basis.

Independent ownership gives Money & King the flexibility to serve families in ways other funeral homes cannot because they are owned by corporations.

Here are 10 other Facts You Should Know

We are the perfect blend of affordability and excellence. Vienna and Northern Virginia families have access to the most extensive selection of funeral options. We offer reasonable pricing and our staff does not exploit heightened grief for excessive charges.
We are locally owned and operated by the Carmical Family. You should be aware most other funeral homes in Northern Virginia are owned by publicly traded companies accountable to Wall Street analysts and far away shareholders. We have a list for your convenience HERE.
Our commitment to transparency is reflected in our No Hidden Fee Guarantee and our unwavering dedication to your complete satisfaction with our services.

Our team is made of extremely capable people from diverse backgrounds so that we are fully able to serve the needs of every community. We also have individuals who have been coordinating with Arlington National Cemetery almost every week for over 50 years. Rest assured that your family will receive the utmost care with kindness, compassion, and expertise from our dedicated professionals.

We take pride in our No Pressure approach, which prioritizes active listening. During family conferences, we refrain from pushing sales pitches or resorting to deceptive tactics during this emotionally challenging period. As service experts, we ensure that you only pay for the services you genuinely desire, without any pressure to overspend.
Our funeral home offers a unique and inclusive experience by extending a warm welcome to pets for private viewings. We understand that pets are cherished members of the family, and we believe in honoring their bond with their human companions. You and your loved ones can have the opportunity to say goodbye together, providing a comforting and meaningful farewell for all family members, including your beloved pets.
As a responsible member of our community, we actively give back by reinvesting in various charitable and local non-profit organizations. Through generous donations and volunteer efforts, we support numerous causes that aim to make a positive impact. By actively engaging with our community, we strive to foster growth, support those in need, and create a better future for all.
Among funeral homes nationwide, only a select few, less than 7% of all firms, meet the stringent requirements to become a member of Selected Independent Funeral Homes. We are one of those few. Being a Selected member signifies our commitment to upholding the highest standards of care in our profession. We strictly adhere to a comprehensive Code of Good Practice, ensuring that our services consistently meet and exceed expectations.

While every funeral home offers cremation services, you should be aware not all own a crematory and take the same care with the process. Money & King owns a crematory and has carefully designed procedures which are accountable and every step is managed by our staff.

Rest assured, our staff is efficient in obtaining Death Certificates promptly, often within the initial few days following the doctor’s signature. We understand the importance of these documents and strive to expedite the process, ensuring that you receive the necessary paperwork in a timely manner.
Our commitment to rapid and responsive service extends around the clock, every day of the year. Whether it’s day or night, weekday or weekend, you can rely on our dedicated team to be available 24/7, 365 days a year.
