Retire Your Flag

Retire Your Flag

The Dignified Way While Honoring A Veteran - At Sturtevant Funeral Home we operate an on-site crematory. When your flags are no longer worthy of display, please bring them to us and we will cremate the flag with a veteran. Your flag will honor a fallen veteran by being draped over the individual at the time of cremation. It is a fitting tribute to veterans and a patriotic way to “retire” aged flags.

There is no charge for this service.

Flags may be dropped off Mon-Sat 9:00 am–5:00 pm


On June 14, 2016, Sturtevant Funeral Home was invited to receive retired flags from Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Flags of all different sizes were donated and presented to Robie Gardner during a small cermony inside the historic Shipyard Commander's Residence.
