Conner Bowman History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Lynch Conner-Bowman funeral home welcomes you. We are proud to announce that 100 percent of our business is now locally owned and managed. Franklin County residents now have an alternative option for a local funeral home.

We have completed renovations to our funeral home and now offer everything on one level. We have moved our arrangement room and selection room to the first floor of the building making it more accessible to the families we serve. We have also installed the Family Advisor system from Aurora Casket Company. Our families will now have the option to view vaults and caskets without having to go into the selection area if they feel uncomfortable. If a family prefers to see the caskets in full-view, we still offer our selection room.


All of the furniture has been replaced, the exterior painted and our chapel upgraded. We now offer video recordings of each service and offer video memorials to each family.

Conner-Bowman Funeral Home & Crematory is now available on Route 220, at the intersection with Wirtz Road. This is a state of the art facility offering 11,000 square feet of space to assist our families in their time of need. We have the ability to provide personalized service for each family by having the most modern and largest facilities in the county. We offer the County’s first on-site crematory which is located in the main funeral home, large spacious viewing rooms, the county’s largest chapel (with seating up to 200) a separate family room, a family lounge and a children’s room. Our state-of-the art audio and video systems and instrumentation, including the Allen Organ or Roland Digital Piano, are available to you.


We offer many services, including traditional, cremation, full-service, direct, or memorial services. We will arrange these services for you at one of our chapels, or at a place that you choose. This could be a community center, church, or family home. We can assist with all veteran paperwork, provide Military Honors at the burial site and provide a flag to honorably discharged veterans.

As an added service to the families we serve, we provide a dove at the graveside for each family at no additional cost. This is how we give back to each family. For those families electing cremation with a memorial service, we offer the dove release at the conclusion of the service in front of our funeral homes. A video tribute is also available. We do not limit the number of photos that can be saved to a hard disk. This service is also offered at no charge.


It’s the little things that make a difference in funeral services. We strive to give the best service possible, but listening and paying attention to the family is our goal…we welcome any and all requests from the families we serve.


We live by the Golden Rule and strive to serve others. Each family will be treated with dignity and respect.


We have made sure that whatever the need is of the family, we have all of the tools in place to meet that need.

We have 25 dedicated staff members ready to serve at any hour of the day and the determination to treat every family as if it were their own. Lynch Conner Bowman and Conner Bowman are the funeral home you choose.


Lynch Conner Bowman Funeral Home, Conner Bowman Funeral Home, and Crematory can be operated together as one funeral home. They offer the same professional service at both sites. Our prices will be the same for both facilities and for those families that have already pre-paid their services at Lynch or Arrington Bussey Funeral Home, you will have the option of using either facility. You have the choice! There will not be any difference in cost to you. Should you have your pre-paid funeral arrangements at another funeral home in Franklin County or another location, Virginia Law allows you to transfer these arrangements from one funeral home to another. We can take care of the transfer and you will never have to contact the original firm.


We invite you in to see our changes and always know that we are here to serve in your time of need.


We are now proud members of the National Funeral Directors Association, Virginia Funeral Directors Association and the Independent Funeral Homes of Virginia. Locally, we are members of the Franklin County Retail Merchants Association.

Faye Carter

For as long as I can remember Lynch Conner Bowman Funeral Home is the only funeral home our family has ever used. Their commitment and dedication to their customers has been their top priority. J.W. Hall, my husband of 51 year was my last. Hall died April 4, 2013. Kevin Bowman held me hand and led me down the aisle after the service was over. His staff and he treated us like their family. They were attentive to my needs as well as those of my family. This will always be our number one choice for burying our loved ones.

During a time of deep sadness for our family, the staff at Conner Bowman Funeral Home showed an incredible amount of support, kindness & respect for our family. They were able to help us navigate the details with compassion and care for both our immediate family members as well as our extended families. The compassion that was demonstrated after our loss will never be forgotten. Conner Bowman responded to every need promptly. Each detail of the services was well planned, and for that my family will always be grateful. You are a blessing to our community!

Angie McGhee, family of Martha Cornog

Our family was so blessed to have received the services of Conner-Bowman Funeral Home and Crematory at the time of my husband’s death in 2010. Conner-Bowman Funeral Home and Crematory was a caring, professional and loving staff that honored all of our wishes. They even considered many things we had never thought of. We will always remember this wonderful experience. The lovely and comfortable facilities offer everything to meet the needs of everyone with someone always available – day or night for consultation. It was always a comfort to know that all our needs were being met in a unique way. Victor, Kevin, and the entire staff deserve our appreciation for their care and compassion during the funeral, visitation, and subsequent time. We are grateful for all of your help!

My mother was diagnosed with leukemia at Christmas, treated with chemotherapy, and died within 5 weeks of her diagnosis. The sudden loss and the subsequent cancer treatment were overwhelming for our family. The professional associates at Conner Bowman responded immediately to our loss, giving us their sincere compassion and respect. The process and preparation of services was easy given the circumstances. Conner Bowman was attentive to our needs and took care of all details. We could not have asked for a better experience at such a difficult time.

There are many decisions that must be made quickly. Your suggestions and comforting words were a great help. I will always be grateful for the kindness, dignity and reverence you gave to all of us.
